5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for... March 5 2013
By Magus - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've so many HTML5/CSS3 'textbooks' that present a 'classroom' take on teaching but what I really needed, now, was a quick-reference books so that I wouldn't have to wade through a dozen books, chapter by chapter, to find what I was looking for - and this book fills that need perfectly.

It's a bit expensive for what it is, but worth every penny. I highly recommend it to designers who, like myself, are making the transition from print to web. Yes, you can go through thousands of pages at [...] to find what you're looking for, but Sergey has it all summed up for you in one modest volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reference Sept. 19 2012
By David Carrus - Published on
I read this (e-)book during summer. I must admit I had no expectations. Instead it revealed itself as a good surprise.

It doesn't go all the way, diving into extra-complicated stuff, instead provides a good reference. Many(Most) things are explained witht ables and graphics, and i found myself re-checking it when i had some doubt .

I give it 4 stars not 5 because the pdf version i have, has no index. Don't know if this is a problem related to my early version.
This is a little disappointing, given the main purpose of the book to be a reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great reference book Aug. 28 2012
By Nadav Blum - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a very detailed and thorough reference to HTML5 and CSS3.
It is divided into three sections:

* HTML5 syntax and element description (chapters 1-4)
* CSS3 description and list of properties (chapter 5)
* HTML api and surrounding technologies (chapter 6)

It is immediately apparent that this book is indeed (as the title suggests) a reference book and not a textbook or a 'friendly' guide to client-side coding. Readers without prior technical knowledge and experience coding html and css and some JavaScript, will find this book very difficult to read and hence of limited use.

For readers with a stronger background, the book serves mainly as a reference list for the huge vocabularies of html5 and css3. It may be helpful in cases where some css property, html tag or attribute is suddenly 'forgotten' in the course of writing code, serving as a quick reminder with brief examples and a full list of options.

The book could also be used to learn new html tag and css3 properties.
One may read through the huge tables of chapter 3 (html) and chapter 5 (css3), encounter an unrecognized subject, and after reading the book's short explanation, look for longer discussions and live code examples on the web.

Reviewing the book this way, I encountered many tags, attributes and properties that were unfamiliar to me and thus learned quite a lot. For example, the book lists the cases in which 'closing' html tags may be omitted, and accompanies this with an almost amusing example of valid html5 code in which most closing tags as well as the <html> and tags are absent! (pp. 25-26).
I enjoyed also reading about some html5 unrecognized niceties like the 'download' and 'ping' attributes of the <a> tag, and so on.

The html section (chapters 1-4), while long and detailed, is an interesting read, even just for educational purposes. Not so with chapter 5, which consists of a very long table of all css3 properties. One cannot read through it at leisure because it is just too long, technical and detailed. It can only reasonably serve as a reference or 'lookup' table for the developer.

As the book stresses, the html 5 and css3 standards are still in draft phase and they can (often do) change from time to time. Therefore, one should take into account that the book's lists may prove slightly inaccurate in the mid-to-long run.

The discussion of html5 api (chapter 6), is interesting and quite detailed. It contains a long enumeration of technologies surrounding the core of HTML markup. There are many such technologies (svg, MathML, file-api etc.) some of which deserve a book of their own. The chapter introduces those technologies, which will probably shape the future of the web, and explains their rationale well.

All in all, this book is very detailed and comprehensive.
It may prove useful to the professional client-side developer, but should not be mistaken for a textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent HTML5 Reference April 10 2012
By Barbara E Rose - Published on
May be the best HTML5 reference I have ever seen.

Designed for experienced webdesigner, but I would highly recommend it to beginners
as a supplement to a HTML5 for Beginners book.

The layout and presentation is the best I have ever seen in 32 years of programming!
