When you study a foreign language you typically need a grammar book and a dictionary. Similarly, when you study a programming language you typically need a guide book and a reference book - although, if you are familiar with the previous version of HTML, a reference book alone might be enough.
From the Author
The author's goal was to create a one-stop resource reference source which is comprehensive but still concise, simple, easy-to-read, and structured. This is the world's first HTML5 reference-style book. This is also the first book with XHTML5 coverage.
