3.0 out of 5 stars A brief, if not perfect, introduction to the topic. July 13 2007
By Michael Bond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am currently using this book as a text in a course I teach. Xhtml is a minor component of the course material and as such, this is a good text. There are good examples and references to important web sites. It covers all of the basics.

Being small (yet pricey), this book doesn't spend a lot of time on web design and it is not a particularly good reference manual. As another reviewer wrote, there are a few errors in it.

But, if you want to get your feet wet, take the book, read it carefully, duplicate all of the examples get them to work. If you do this, you'll have a good solid start in the subject matter.
1.0 out of 5 stars A comedy of Errors...Save your money... May 17 2007
By George Orwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have bought this book as it was a prerequisite for a college course.

I started to read the first chapter and proceeded to do the assignments,

when lo an behold what I had read was grossly inaccurate. In black and white.

The errors start on page 9. Gross errors such as Cheryl M. Hughes stating that, a "paragraph

is an empty element,unlike other elements, have one tag. WRONG

An paragraph must always have a start tag

, and an end tag

I won't go on because the following errors are just as gross. I found out about

the errors through the instructor. So I ask how does a 196 page glossy, visual, colour

book come up to 41.38 plus tax. Why does the college promote it? Sam's Xhtml you can get

for 40 to 60 dollars and is about 500 pages long. Who's in cohoots with whom.

I am not throwing this money away and I'll be asking for a refund from the publisher.

How can the college who is aware of gross errors still promote this book?

Who's in cohoots with whom? Who is this Cheryl M. Hughes? Has anybody proof read the book

who knew anything at all about XHTML or can I also write a book publish it and charge that

kind of money for a sloppily, inaccurate, ERRONEOUS information.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU DID BRING IT BACK. ASK FOR A REFUND. WRITE TO THE PUBLISHER.

As for the person who gave it five stars, did you even bother learning anything...?

Have you a clue what you are writing about?

Who's paying you to give a book full of major errata five stars.

By the way I gave it 1 star because there was no 0.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK
