5-0 out of 5 stars Needed to do some Refresher Training
I have experience in HTML and CSS; however, I had not dealt with them in some time (five years or so). I needed to find a book that would get to the basics, yet at the same time NOT be so exhaustive that I would find myself dozing. Can anyone blame me for not wanting to be bored to death by wordy descriptions?
5-0 out of 5 stars very good book
this is a very good book for beginners.TSTC Waco is using it for the intro class in the webmaster 2 year degree program. Covers HTML , XHTML, AND CSS STYLE SHEETS in detail. A lot of screen shots showing what the code should look like.Which, for a beginner is VERY IMPORTANT! If you do not know the code how else would you know that you got it right if something small is wrong.The only fault I have with the book compared to my first HTML book is there is not a quick reference card printed on the back cover.This is a minor thing but is handy for quick review.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Learning Tool for the non-technical
This is a true learner's guide to building standards-based Web pages.It includes a lot of information on common HTML and CSS traps and pitfalls as well as why common conceptions about style are often wrong.To help the reader actually learn the material in a fun and friendly manner it includes a lot of puzzles and exercises and other material that make it a joy to learn.This is truly a guide for the non-programmer that will have them quickly up to speed on how to design and build a web site.One of the virtues of this particular book is that the authors relate common problems and frustrations of users and how to avoid them in your website.

Editorial Review

It's important for anyone who creates Web sites--even those who rely on powerful editors like Dreamweaver or GoLive--to know HTML. The World Wide Web Consortium rewrote HTML as a subset of XML (dubbing it "XHTML 1.0") and the allowable code will eventually be stricter. Tags that are being phased out are labeled "deprecated"--current browsers can still handle them, but if you want your site to keep up with future browsers, not to mention conform to accessibility requirements, you will want to get on top of XHTML.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Far and away the best book for everyone!
This is simply the best HTML and CSS book.It has basically everything you need to know, with easy-to-find, easy-to-understand, and concise descriptions.It it not "web for dummies," rather, it is a very sophisticated and realistic approach to HTML and CSS, without a lot of hype or self-promotion.If you want to hear people wax poetical about the "EM" unit, you can get the book by Lie & Bos, but I think Castro's book is far more useful.She gives links to many web sites to help with more advanced stuff (Javascript, etc.), which is nice, but the book itself is incredibly comprehensive.And the layout of the book is a model for all instructional texts.A winner!

4-0 out of 5 stars For Reference or for learning
Elizabeth Castro has been writing Visual Quickstart Guides to HTML and web design in an easy to understand manner. Now she provides resources for those who would be interested in web design that will create sites that are usable for years to come. Since I first picked up the fourth edition of this book, I have been hooked on the series, because its explanations are written on a level for the average person. The organization allows the reader to move at their own pace and easily refer back to topics that they want to refresh.
5-0 out of 5 stars Coding
This book was a real help to me when I first became addicted to coding. The pictures are quite helpful, or at least more helpful than long explanations, and Elizabeth Castro is a fabulous writer. I learned so much that I went on to learn many other programming and coding languages with ease. You don't need to have any experience to use this book, it explains everything. Visual QuickStart Guide's are the best type in the market, cheap and easy to understand. So if you are itching to learn another computer language, I suggest checking them out! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware - You need to ALSO know Photoshop
I was disappointed - not because the CSS stuff is poorly presented, because it's on the better side of average, but because to learn this book's stuff, or try to emulate some of the examples, requires a knowledege of Photoshop.For example, you need to know how to create an image with a gradient applied to a canvas, or to create a 1 pixel transparent row within an image - something that your average person may takes weeks to learn on his own.Photoshop is not all that intuitive to just grab a copy and simply create an image that the author uses.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great book but missing a page
Great resource for css designers. I particularly enjoyed the section on rounded corners and css without tables. But I did find one thing wrong with it--page 196 is missing from my copy. What happened?

5-0 out of 5 stars The Title Says It All
Dan's book has been incredible in helping me built great UIs that truly are bulletproof.I'm currently working with a mega-church to design a completely new website, and Bulletproof stays on my desk as a terrific reference. I'm amazed at how easy writing clean code is and how bulletproof it really is. Something like a box with links that I used to build out of complex tables and sliced images (that would invariably break in certain conditions) can now be done with a couple of divs, a couple of images, and a few lines of CSS.Amazing!This is a must have book for all designers. ...

Editorial Review

Danny Goodman felt that he couldn't trust any of the documentation on Dynamic HTML (DHTML) that he read (too many contradictions), so he wrote this book as a reference for working with his own clients. After testing tags and techniques on multiple releases of the main browsers, Goodman came up with very practical information--some of which you may not find in any other resource.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible For Web Developers
This book truly is a definitive resource for DHTML development.I originally read this book when Ajax was taking off as an acronym and a movement.I am VERY glad that I read this book to set a solid background in the Javascript and XHTML underpinnings of Ajax - moving on to Ajax topics has been straightforward after digesting Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference.
5-0 out of 5 stars I have this book always on my side
I have this book always on my side, and when I started to learn DHTML I used a lot. Now I used less often but I still using it every once in a While. Actually I need to buy a second copy because the first one is so wear out that it started to lose pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Resource!
I recently volunteered to assist as webmaster for a friend's mayoral campaign website.Having last used HTML and some Javascript years ago for a very basic personal homepage, I needed to get up to speed quickly. So I hit many, many websites and web tutorials on XHTML and CSS.They gave me an acceptable, but not entirely solid foundation on designing with those technologies.I needed more, and fortunately found this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely pedagogic and well-written.
I really liked this book and consider it to be in a class for itself (no pun intended :-).
5-0 out of 5 stars The best CSS book yet
I've read many CSS books last several years, but still this is the best CSS book out there. The content itself deserves 5 stars, but what separates it from others is Dan's teaching style. From start to end, every page is carefully organized and well planned with readers in mind, this book is not just collection of good CSS tips and tricks. There are so many great books on CSS these days, but this is the best. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great "dummies" book ...
If you are a complete beginner with respect to many of the skills needed for Ajax: HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript, then this book might be for you.All of the O'reilly Head First/Head Rush series are excellent teaching books and do a wonderful job at teaching skills in small bite-size chunks.Lots of pictures, exercises and games.This is about as fun as a book can get.
5-0 out of 5 stars HEAD RUSH AJAX--APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE APPLICATION!! HEAD RUSH AJAX--APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE APPLICATION!! ....
Do you want to learn , understand, and remember Ajax, with a goal of developing more responsive web applications. If you do, then this book is for you. Author Brett McLaughlin, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that in no time will allow you to write JavaScript code that fires off asynchronous requests to web servers.
1-0 out of 5 stars So redundant and so boring
I bought 4 other head first series books, java, EJB, Design pattern, and Servlet. These books were fast, funny and of course, informative. I really love these series. However, when I read this book I was so disappointed. Most explanations are redundant and it made me boring and the reading pace was suspended. I think the author have to add more examples and shorten the explanation. I regret to buy this book. Not recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and easy to follow
I'm not a neophyte with CSS, but when I needed to turn an all-table-layout site into an all-CSS-layout site, I needed help. I turned to McFarland's book, which after a quick flip-through at the store seemed to hit exactly what I needed. Literally two pages of reading covered me, and I was off and running. But when I started reading the rest I was amazed at how much I didn't know about CSS. I really appreciate the real-world focus on browsers like IE5-6, and the inclusion of specific fixes for those CSS-unfriendly browsers. The fact that this book is SO recent - mid-2006 - means it's as up-to-date as a printed publication possible could be. While I'm sure the lengthy tutorials would be useful for someone progressively learning CSS, I like the book for it's logical organization, allowing me to flip to the bit I need, quickly see examples of what's going on (the ample screen shots are appropriate for a visual medium like CSS), and get back to work. I don't buy many computer books (for all that I've written several), but this one earns a permanent place not on my bookshelf, but right on my desk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another excellent missing manual
This is another fine addition to the Missing Manual series. CSS is easier than it sounds and now I think I understand it. MacFarland makes it all clear. This whole series is excellent - books for those of us who still like our manuals on paper.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, Straight-forward, Professional Approach to CSS
Overall, the book is a great read and recommended for anyone serious about designing professional websites.The chapters are broken up appropriately giving readers a gradual progression into the world of Cascading Style Sheets without too much detail at once.A major issue encountered in the book were the random passages scattered throughout where the author made recommendations that subsequent sections was boring and could be skipped.Personally I feel this puts the reader into a disgruntled state of mind.I liked how David put in the tutorials at the end of each chapter (except chapter 1) and these helped a lot clarify the material and how to put that material to use.I was disappointed though that the book did not present exercises for the reader to try out on their own at the end of each chapter.There were some exercises given by David but they were not consistent throughout the book (most chapters didn't have them).Finally I really enjoyed the overall pace of the book and found Appendix A with the entire CSS property list to be most helpful. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book for a start to learning Web Design
I found this book to be well written as a relative HTML novice and it was comprehensive enough (hence the title) in scope. I thought the projects and exercises were all well thought out. I especially appreciated that they gave a layout reference for all coding during the tutorials to make sure it was written and placed properly. They even gave a set of review-question answers keys at the end of each chapter which was useful for double checking your knowledge.
5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book
The tutorial sections were easy to follow, but the case problems were sometimes hard to understand.

2-0 out of 5 stars Excruciatingly verbose
This will absolutely be the last Wrox book I bought.The annoying, condescending author's photo on the cover aside, this book is extremely verbose, to the point of distracting the reader from really learning anything.For example, it seems on every other page the author feels compelled to tell you that XHTML is just the successor of HTML (he must of thought of the typical reader as totally dumb) and he has a God-given talent of saying so in far more words than necessary each time.Another example: when he gives you some sample code, he would do it step-by-step, and each step would repeat teh same code that was already printed before!What's more, in teh "how it works" recap section, he would then re-print the entire code segment!This book weighs in at over 600 pages, but the contents could easily have fit on half that.Talking about killing trees.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very thorough page turner
For being a technical book, this was a very nice read.Similar to other Wrox books that I have read in that their basic format is a thorough explanation of a subject, then a "try it out" where you are able to implement the subject, and finally a "how it work" where the "try it out" is explained.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for web programmer
This is a good intermediate level book for learning to design and write web pages. It might be a bit much for a beginner, but would still belong on their shelf as a reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars For both beginners and experts
I've taught HTML and e-commerce at the university level for about a decade now.This book is the best I have found.I use it as my personal reference.I require it for my classes.
3-0 out of 5 stars Ok
This book is ok.I had to get it for a class.The writing is alittle hard to follow, but it is a good reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners
I purchased this book to use in a class I was taking.I had no prior knowledge of HTML, but this book does an excellent job of introducing the reader to designing web pages.I found the chapters very easy to follow and the exercises were kind of fun as you got to practice what you just read about.I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn HTML. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!
This book is not worth your money.It is poorly written, does not explain code, and is very incomplete.Bible in its title is very misleading...

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Textbook for Beginners
I have used this book as a textbook for an "Introduction to HTML" class I taught.I looked at several references prior to choosing on one, and this was by far the best formatted and most appropriate for those with little to no existing knowledge of HTML.
2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
The title is misguiding. It's everything but an HTML, XHTML & CSS Bible. Title should read "Become a webmaster in a month". I expected to have: - The full HTML Specification with an example for each definition - Same for XHTML (DTD, rules to respect, validation, etc...) - Same for CSS and *PLEASE*, at least the basics of tableless CSS layout If the book were to expose the aforementioned information, it would exceed the 800 pages, and the author wouldn't have had to put some more information that is useful, I agree, but it's off-topic, sorry. The author should stress a lot more on standards. Standards are important, and one can't call a book a "Bible" if it only covers 75% of HTML, 50% of XHTML and hardly covers basics of CSS. It lacks information on the PNG file format (open source). Mention of the Opera Browser is almost non-existent, even if it's the most standard-compliant browser. Using tables to create a layout is old-fashioned and many good books (by Dan Cederholm, Jeffrey Zeldman or Eric Meyer) proove that one should *NOT* use tables for layout so that structure and content are clearly seperated from presentation. Without this discipline, the web won't be able to evolve toward XML. The book talks about image retouching, which again is off-topic, pretty much like SMIL, multimedia, FTP, maintainance, databases, weblogs, PHP & MySQL. I noticed several errors, and then I stopped writing them down. These are some of them: - p.93 PNG, is stored without being compressed doesn't loose color or image quality, and does support transparency. At least this can be achieved in Photoshop CS. - p.108 I find it sad that the author doesn't show how image maps are done with circles and polygons - chap.9 "Special characters" should show a sample for every single entity - p.184 The author puts the e-mail address into the code. How is it possible?! With all the spam problems people keep complaining, how come the author doesn't display the e-mail address thanks to a javascript to hide it from spambots? - p.188 in Part III instead of in Part II - p.210 He forgot that the label tag can nest the radio button and the text without ID. - p.284 div.div1 table should read div.div1>table - All examples are shown in IE or Netscape 4. Why not show modern browsers (Opera 7.8, Mozilla 1.8, Firefox 1.0) - p.379 user agent is not Opera but Firebird This is not a bad book, it has a lot of useful information, but what drove me nuts is that I wanted a "Bible" for these 3 languages. I had to buy other books. I hope now people who buy this book know it's a general-purpose book on web design. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars For the apprentice, not the beginner
This books, in my opinion, is definitely not for the newcomer. If you've never done web design, this book is going to be overwhelming for you. It touches on a lot of topics.
5-0 out of 5 stars Want to, or already, build sites; buy this book
Reference book, not really. It has a short reference for most used items in the back, but the book is more for putting things together.
5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book for newbies and folks upgrading skills
This is a very well thought out book.The chapters and examples start very basic and build and build into some fairly impressive pieces.Javascript and PHP is used in limited fashion.Most examples are exclusively XHTML and CSS.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Works, but very Outdated!
At the time of this writing, this book is very outdated.What does it take to update a Book like this?Not very much.Animabets.com does not exist anymore, and they constantly cite examples using this website, not to mention any software they recommend is also way outdated, and their examples don't work with any current software.But I'm not saying you couldn't learn HTML using this book.It just wastes a lot of your valuable time.

5-0 out of 5 stars the easiest and best
as i used this item i was amazed at the ease of use and the good pictoral examples given on each page with red lines showing where every thing is and how it works there is no better book to learn html

5-0 out of 5 stars The "Webster's Dictionary" of HTML books
You know the old saw, "never judge a book by its cover"?Not only teaches the novice the intracacies of HTML, but is also a superb reference for the accomplished coder.I call it the "Webster's Dictionary" of HTML books because the end effect(s) (think "word(s)" using the dictionary analogy) is side-by-side with the HTML code (the "definition").I have many HTML books, but I find myself coming back to this one as my steady and reliable desk reference on HTML. ...
