Very good book goes through step by step. Gives good practice examples. Comes with code to see the different variations possible. Its also easy to skip parts that you feel you won't need, without feeling like you've missed out on a big part.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be your SECOND book on the topic July 13 2009
By Timothy Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Anyone serious about learning web design should consider this book. It is a superb textbook, offering six chapters of solid (X)HTML education followed by excellent introductions to style sheets, design theory, and scripting. Used in conjunction with the free code download (available from the publisher's web site), it does exactly what it says on the tin.

That said, I would not recommend this book for absolute beginners or dabblers in web design. Simply put, it IS a textbook... the black and white illustrations are simply not sufficient to get a grasp of color, layout, and the like - you must do the end of chapter exercises. Further, the sequential instruction presented in the book hampers its use as a reference; it can answer "what does this tag do?" but not "how do I do that?"

Bottom line: if you have a little HTML experience and have already read a thin "newbie book" on the topic, then you are the ideal student for this excellent self-study course.

The book is well written and easy to understand. It makes a great reference and is still my go-to book when I need a quick syntax re-cap. I wish all of my reference books were more like this one. I would totally recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about basic web stuff. Jon Duckett ROCKS!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Learning Tool Jan. 12 2013

As a Computer Science major, I am always learning and mastering languages. I have known HTML and CSS for quite a while, but I used this book to show me how to transition to XHTML and also for the brief introduction to JavaScript. This book was overall a very easy to follow and insightful guide to learning the in's and out's to programming on the web (at a basic level). I have bought the set of books from Wrox (This one, JavaScript, PHP, and SQL) and I couldn't have been happier. I find all of their books to be great teaching sources and also a great reference. As a CS major, I find it extremely helpful to have AT LEAST 1 reference book for every language, and this is a great one for (X)HTML and CSS. I strongly recommend this to all my friends who wish to get into the wonderful world of web based programming. 5/5 stars!

I needed a backup reference manual to take things a step further after using the "For Dummies" book on HTML and CSS coding. It was just what I was looking for... detailed and well organized. Great book.
