  1. This book is one of the best web page design books I’ve used. Not only does it tell you how do get things done, it will explain multiple ways of getting the same result and the pros and cons of each way. It explains why to design your website using xhtml strict instead of any other form, but still lets you know how to go about using the other doctypes. It explains the correct way to use tables, manipulate images, and format your text. The author goes into a great amount of detail in an easy-to-read way so that you aren’t overwhelmed even if you have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself into. I have benefited from it greatly, and would recommend it to any beginner web-page designer.

  2. I just got this book about a month ago. I have a basic knowledge already of CSS and HTML but I wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly and needed more explanation on some things and just wanted to really understand the coding more so I didn’t have to rely so much on dreamweaver/photoshop to write most of it for me. I think that this book is great, especially for hands on learning. There is a folder you can download on the internet that contains documents for the exercises in the book. For every section there are exercises you can do to learn all the different parts of css and can see what everything does as far as navigation, type, lists etc etc. I think the author is very easy to understand and very thorough. Overall I think it is definitely one of the more useful ones and will make sure to teach you how to do CSS and XHTML correctly to avoid errors in different platforms/browsers and to ensure compatibility across the board. Great book. Really enjoyed it and recommend even if you’re knowledge level is very little. Although if you have never worked with css and html before it might be a little much too fast.

  3. One good book, straight to the point and yet easy to understand. The author certainly exhibits some strong pedagogical skills and he does a fantastic job at integrating various technologies under one roof. Each of the ten chapters and six appendices focus on one aspect and is illustrated by lots of practical examples that could be reused almost as is in your own projects. The author’s decision to avoid any reference to web design applications is a smart one. Not only does it allow him to focus on the very foundations of web design but also to be relevant to a wider audience, both in terms of platform and level. With lots of tips, plenty of warnings, and an emphasis on standards and industry best practices, this book is like having a private web design instructor. Highly recommended.

  4. Great book suported by some On-line examples, specially good for begginers.

    Little more examples or exercises will give this book the 5th star but as it is now it is also great.

    My recomendation..
