Let's face it, HTML isn't exactly rocket science. And this book gave it exactly the treatment it deserves: clear, easy to understand examples that show you what to do and what the results will be. If you are looking for a handy reference that won't break the bank or the bookshelf, this is the one. The coverage of CSS and XHTML standards was excellent, allowing me to go from absolutely no knowledge of CSS to writing my websites using style sheets rather than old-school formatting. If you are into the old-school stuff, it's in there for you, as well as a chapter on WML, for all you early adopters out there.
My only complaint is that sometimes in the CSS chapters it was hard to tell if the code snippets were coming from the style sheet or from the HTML document, but once I got the hang of it that all made more sense. On the whole I would definitely reccomend this book to any beginner or intermediate programmer who wants to learn clean, standards-based (X)HTML.

This book lays down easy to follow examples, and specifies what CSS and (X)HTML tags will and won't work in older browers. The naming of elements and classes could use a little more emphasis. It's there, but you can't run by fast.
I would have given this book Five Stars but the author's companion website is so poorly designed and formatted that you can barely read it. It's so bad that it is a credibility issue to the book.
Standing on its own, the book is excellent.

I'm writing this many years after using it for school. It was a great go to, as I was new to both had basics in there. Served its purpose

This is great for both beginners learning HTML and experts with a need for a quick reference. Money well spent.
