Very well written book for absolute begginers.
It won't make you a pro but you'll be able to understand pretty much any web site construction and tweak or change your own.
Shipping was fast!

Format: Paperback
We're almost in 2009, and this title is still the BEST resource for the total novice to standards-based (X)HTML and CSS.

Ive been involved in web design for almost two years now, and this was the first book I picked up on the subject, and lucky for me, I made the right choice, because this title set me off into the often complex world of (XHTML) and CSS the right way -- no outdated HTML practices here from way back in the day.

The most refreshing thing is the simplicity of how they achieve this. The book assumes you know NOTHING -- and even though you personally may know some things, the lack of assumptions, really forces you to take things from the ground up. One. Step. At. A. Time. And their enforcing of the W3C standard and of accessibility is also admirable, as by the end, you too will be a fan.

In the beginning I was put off a tad by the "cutsyness" of it, and wondered if I was actually going to come out the end ABLE to do anything; but as it turned out -- I was. By the end of this book you will understand things better, but you will be able to apply what you've learned right away to your own projects.

Pointers: (what worked for me)
-- Start working on your own projects right away. Work on your own stuff as you're going through the book and learning new things. It will help the material stick. And it will show you how real-world design can be, even if on a minimal level.

-- Work through this book daily, or every other day, otherwise nothing is likely to stick and you will be frustrated and have to go back to the beginning.

-- Read the blogs of well-known and respected designers to gain a deeper insight into the web and design.

-- Pick up two good reference books, one for CSS, one for HTML.

I had a great time using this book. I especially loved the vintage images and the captions at the beginning of each chapter. Sometimes the book goes on a rather roundabout way of teaching something (having the learner do something wrong, be told that it's wrong, then do it right) but I didn't mind because it probably meant that I retained a lot. I feel comfortable looking at HTML and CSS code after using this book, because I understand what's going on.
