Format: Paperback
This book is not bad, but by the author's own admission, much of what is being explained is deprecated. The book is quite good at telling you what NOT to use, but keeps referring the reader to Chapt 16 (CSS). Unfortunately the CSS chapter does not show all the correct ways to implement the deprecated features (use of justification - left, right, center - in tables, for example).
One nice feature in the book was the "Widely Supported" yes/no indicator for HTML syntax in the Appendix A.
I think the author should have spent more time on non-deprecated usage of HTML and CSS, instead of saying "Here's how to do this, but don't do it this way." This book is probably useful to someone who is trying to READ older HTML code, but is not so useful for someone trying to write new HTML code.
In summary, although it has useful information surrounding the use of HTML, this book should probably be re-titled to "HTML Deprecated", or "Reading Deprecated HTML Code", or alternatively needs a much-expanded section on use of CSS.

Format: Paperback
What has over 1000 pages covering every aspect of HTML web page design? Sybex has brought to you a perfect companion for every web designer of all skill levels with the HTML Complete book and all for und $25.00.

Laid out in a manner that starts you from the beginning of page layout all the way through XML and DHTML. Throughout the book the author provides tips and notes to help you avoid pitfalls and traps.

The book seems to be written to the lowest common level, this ensures that everyone can work with the book and that no assumptions of skill sets are made, my students found this to be very useful in the designing of their websites.

Another thing I liked about the book was that way the author eases you into XHTML, DHTML and XML. The learning curve is tailored for those without experience and this too makes it easy to grasp the material.

Having worked with web pages for over 5 years in both the professional and classroom, I found several things that I could use and a few new things that I had never seen or tried before.

Overall this book gave me everything I was looking for in HTML and web page creation.

I bought this book at a local bookstore and it's one of the best computer books I've purchased. It starts from the beginnings of HTML, covers CSS and everthing inbetween, and finishes with an introduction to advanced HTML. There are also numerous reference tables (color, tags) for the more experienced web designer.
