Excellent resource, in addition to w3c (w3.org) and other online resources. ( )

This book was required reading for one of my courses (an introduction to information technology for those of us who aren't exactly tech-savvy). This semester I was particularly overworked so I gave up on readings for this course pretty early on, meaning that I only got through the first four chapters of this book. I don't see it as much of a loss that I didn't get to the rest. While the book has plenty of useful information, it's not exactly a book you just sit down and read. It's more like a reference guide to consult when needed. Most of what is covered is pretty basic though, and a great deal of it can be found online. However, I do have to say I'm a big fan of the color chart found on the back inside cover -- I think this is the only part I consulted multiple times. I'm not sure I would recommend spending your money on this one, unless you anticipate building a lot of basic websites in the near future. But, hey, I only read the first four chapters, maybe it gets better. ( )

Easy to follow, succinct, and gives great examples. This is a wonderful book when just learning HTML, XHTML, and CSS, and is a useful reference guide to keep on your shelf afterward as well. ( )

Any book by Elizabeth Castro is worth reading. She is, hands down, the best technical writer working today. If you don't understand it when she gets done explaining it to you, it really is hopeless. :-) ( )

A great book for beginners, it has lots of pictures and step-by-step instructions to follow. The author's very good about explaining the rules and the exceptions to those rules. ( )
