2.0 out of 5 stars Not like the Teach Yourself Visually Series Dec 25 2009
Format:Paperback
I should have gone into a Chapters or an Indigo bookstore and flipped through this book first before ordering it on Amazon. It looked so colorful and pretty on the cover but it's nothing like the Teach Yourself Visually Series. I was expecting lots of pictures with little explanation and I got the exact opposite, lots of explanation, less pictures. I do not recommend this for visual learners even though the cover suggests otherwise. I gave my copy away.

5.0 out of 5 stars In my view, the only one to have Oct. 29 2008
By Anthony Mcmanus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a retired aerospace engineer closing with 70, I must be the quintessential cyberspace "Dummie". Looking for a change from retirement boredom, I decided to write a specialist e-guide on kayaking and river running in Thailand. Of course, I would need a website to carry it. So, I set out to build one and obtained two "Dummies" books on website building. They were very good books, both, full of great info. But they made it very clear that I'd have to have something a little more than a passing acquaintance with the site building code, HTML. I had a bad feeling. It sounded, boring, ominous and turgid, rather like eating breakfast cereal without the milk. But I pressed on and bought one of the books recommended which was "HTML 4 for Dummies" by Ed Tittel and Mary Burmeister, 5th Edition. What a surprise. I may be a computer slowcoach, late to the cyberspace gate, but I am a professional and I do recognize and respect professionalism when meet it. The book was a breeze to follow, well written and superbly structured, with countless tips and links to helpful websites. I read the book through with pleasure and plundered it for instruction as I built my website. Mr. Tittel is a pro. He knows his subject well and, writing with a deft sense of humor, he teaches, guides and instills confidence in the reader. So much confidence that I have decided to build more websites. And who knows, maybe even become a webmaster. I lent my copy to a friend and he feels the same. It now sits torn, dog-eared, taped-up and battle-scarred on my bookshelf.
So when I heard of the latest edition "HTML, XHTML and CSS for Dummies" with Mr. Tittel in collaboration with Jeff Noble I obtained a copy. This book has everything the earlier book had, but more. Expanded, naturally, and with more emphasis on CSS and other relevant advances it's a wonderful book. I cannot recommend this work highly enough. It even packs along a dedicated website! If you're a beginner and want to build a website and want a good grasp of HTML, grab this book. And you'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Book at the Perfect Time Aug. 2 2008
By Don Eaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Finally a book that could help me! This was the perfect book at the perfect time.
Now I may or may not be an actual 'dummy', but I can say that this was the first book I've read that really helped me. I searched the book stores (sorry Amazon) looking for a book that could help me re-start a website, and all I could find was a bunch of over technical and complicated volumes that were hard for me to understand. This book was a good introduction book that I found very easy to read without being bogged down with too much technical jargon. The examples were basic but easy to understand and I was able to apply what I learned to help me get my broken-down web site actually working. I was about to give up my hopes of having a 'working' web site, and resign myself to living with the 'technical-dinosaurs'. Fortunately, this book turned all that around for me. Thank you Mr. Tittel and Mr Noble. I will be sending you guys a link to my site soon, so you can see what your book has made possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but somewhat out dated Jan. 29 2009
By Robert E. Gillis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book to learn XHTML and CSS, the latest standards in web development. I found the book very easy to understand and mostly it met my needs. The color examples made the code stand out and less confusing than if the book was printed in black ink. However, when it got to developing tables, the authors used depreciated HTML code which I found disappointing. I was hoping that they would have used the latest CSS standards to do it. All in all, I found the book to be good, but not excellent, introduction to HTML, XHTML.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource Book May 15 2009
By W. Card - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was very easy to comprehend. I didn't have any understanding of HTML, XHTML, or CSS until I read it. Thanks to Jeff Noble and Ed Tittle, I was able to create a community website for New Bern, NC. Check it out [...] I recommend this book to anyone who doesn't have previous knowledge of the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for HTML and CSS Sept. 30 2008
By Travis L. Mcelroy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I rarely buy books but I was stumped on trying to build a simple webpage for my daughter until I happened upon this book while searching Amazon. It has basically everything you need to know, with easy-to-find, easy-to-understand, and concise descriptions. This is a great introductory guide if you are learning the basics and fundamentals of HTML, XHTML, and CSS. I finally built my webpage and this book saved me tons of headaches!
