HTML and its XML-based descendant, XHTML, are the fundamental languages for working on the web, and the new edition of our popular HTML guide offers web developers a better way to become fluent in these languages. HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide, 5th Edition is the most comprehensive, up-to-date book available on HTML and XHTML. It covers Netscape Navigator 6, Internet Explorer 6, HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0, CSS2, and all of the features supported by the popular web browsers. Learning HTML and XHTML is like learning any new language. Most students first immerse themselves in examples. Studying others is a natural way to learn; however, it's as easy to learn bad habits through imitation as it is to acquire good ones. The better way to become HTML-fluent is through a comprehensive reference that covers the language syntax, semantics, and variations in detail and demonstrates the difference between good and bad usage. In HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide, the authors cover every element of HTML/XHTML in detail, explaining how each element works and how it interacts with other elements. Tips about HTML/XHTML style help you write documents ranging from simple online documentation to complex presentations. With hundreds of examples, the book gives you models for writing your own effective web pages and for mastering advanced features like style sheets and frames. HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide, 5th Edition, shows how to: Use style sheets to control a document's appearance Work with programmatically generated HTML Create tables, from simple to complex Use frames to coordinate sets of documents Design and build interactive forms and dynamic documents Insert images, sound files, video, Java applets, and JavaScript programs Create documents that look good on a variety of browsers Make the transition to XHTML The book comes with a handy quick-reference card listing HTML/XHTML tags.… (more)

This book is easy to understand. It's a good place to start if you want to make a basic website. ( )

This is not a *bad* book, but it's far far less than it should be.

The basic problem is that it's a fourth edition; the world has changed immensely since the book was first written, but the book has not changed in parallel. So what we have is basically a guide to how to write c1997 HTML, with all its implicit junk of incompatible browsers and appearance-based markup, on top of which has been added a thin veneer of the new world of XML/XHTML and CSS.

What the world deserves is a decent book that *starts* with XML, semantic markup and CSS in the first chapters, proceeds to XHTML, and never once wastes our time telling us how to do things to work around a bug in some lame version of IE from 1999. ( )
