    1. This is the most comprehensive book on HTML and CSS I’ve read so far. It reads like a textbook and is quite impersonal, which is a shame because author Jennifer Niederst Robbins has been designing since 1993 and obviously has a lot of experience to share. The book was published in June 2007, so it teaches HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0 and CSS 2.1, and is somewhat dated. Even so, it’s a great introduction to web design principles, HTML, and CSS.Each chapter includes several exercises and ends with a te [...]

    2. It took me two months to read it (at over 600 pages), but I finally finished! I bought it as part of an OReilly eBook sale earlier in the year, as I'd been planning to revamp the code I use for the family on-line Advent Calendar. This was perfect for that - my HTML skills were stuck in the mid-nineties, and I'd never got my head round CSS. As this was an overview of HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and image manipulation, as well as general web design principles, it fitted well.This is a very well put tog [...]

    3. This book and its accompanying website are a great, hands-on way to learn (X)HTML and CSS. The plentiful screenshots and practice exercises made it easy to visual the basic concepts of web design. The only problem is, even though the book was published in 2007, it already shows signs of being dated. Some links are broken, IE5 and IE5.5 are referred to as popular browsers, and there's little discussion of the most modern web trends. Further, it would be great to see some more information on HTML5 [...]

    4. A good resource for basic XHTML and CSS techniques.You won't learn how to make super cool, beautiful designs from this book.There are plenty of excersises throughout this book, which I guess are helpful to beginners.Tends to get too detailed at places.The strongest aspect of this book in my opinion is that it follows web standarts and talks about semantics.If you follow the guidelines in this book you will have a well-formed, standart-compilant, semantically correct, well structured, accessible, [...]

    5. Be aware that -- if the subtitle doesn't make this fact obvious -- this book isn't a general introduction to web development. It's entirely focused on the client-side UI, and only has a couple of chapters of JavaScript.With that said, it's a good, fairly readable introduction for people with no experience with web design. It has regular exercises and end-of-chapter quizzes, which are all easy for anyone who followed the chapter's material. Like many textbooks, it's a little bloated; even if you' [...]

    6. 4.5, Amazing reference! Particularly helpful for beginners or those with a little experience but looking for a refresher. Definitely textbook style but it's broken up into easily understandable sections. Also offers lists of elements and styles that you can copy off to keep for reference. Some sections are confusing when they go into deep programming that beginners most likely won't use. Also some of the downloads online are incorrect, but still very good.

    7. I like how the topics are presented, the examples are real-world and not so much if foo then bar style. I hate that. She has a clear and descriptive writing style that makes CSS seem pretty straight forward. In practice it seems to still elude me, but I at least understand what is supposed be displayed and how it is supposed to work.

    8. Just finished my web design class so will be putting this aside to use as a reference book. I liked her businesslike tone and the book seemed very complete. Will be using it regularly as I try to expand my skills in this ever-changing industry.

    9. As a complete newbie to web design, I found this text very helpful. It explains basic concepts of web design and gives lots of examples of how to code HTML and CSS. Highly recommended for the beginning web designer!

    10. An excellent resource for refreshing your basic web design skills or updating your knowledge on current (x)html and CSS standards. Should be good for beginners, too, as it doesn't assume that you're familiar with the tech-speak.

    11. Although, I marked this as finished, I will be revisiting this book from time to time because it is probably one of the best textbooks I have ever read. I very much like its comprehensive coverage and how it provides hands-on practice.

    12. A comprehensive lecture about HTML/CSS and the history of the web.A good start-up book to get you going on your path to be a front-end developer/webdesigner.Plus the exercises are really great, it doesn't just bore you to death with technical know-how.

    13. Incredibly well put together book. Very easy to read through. If you're a beginner or know little to nothing about web design, this book is for you.

    14. Great for beginning HTML. I liked the way it was laid out and how the information was presented. It makes for easy reference later.

    15. This book was very well organized and had lots of great information. I used this along with Lynda to learn html/css.
