Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

All in all, this book is very detailed and comprehensive.

This is a great book to have for reference when you don't feel like hunting down the HTML5 and CSS3 elements and their use on the internet.
Amy L Ramsdell
Designed for experienced webdesigner, but I would highly recommend it to beginners as a supplement to a HTML5 for Beginners book.

Great reference book.
Answers any question one could possibly have regarding HTML5 & CSS3 - nesting, browser support, etc.
Plain and simple layout makes finding the needed info fast and easy.

This book will DEFINITELY be in my go-to pile.

I've so many HTML5/CSS3 'textbooks' that present a 'classroom' take on teaching but what I really needed, now, was a quick-reference books so that I wouldn't have to wade through a dozen books, chapter by chapter, to find what I was looking for - and this book fills that need perfectly.

It's a bit expensive for what it is, but worth every penny. I highly recommend it to designers who, like myself, are making the transition from print to web. Yes, you can go through thousands of pages at [...] to find what you're looking for, but Sergey has it all summed up for you in one modest volume.

Format: Paperback
I read this (e-)book during summer. I must admit I had no expectations. Instead it revealed itself as a good surprise.

It doesn't go all the way, diving into extra-complicated stuff, instead provides a good reference. Many(Most) things are explained witht ables and graphics, and i found myself re-checking it when i had some doubt .

I give it 4 stars not 5 because the pdf version i have, has no index. Don't know if this is a problem related to my early version.
This is a little disappointing, given the main purpose of the book to be a reference.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a very detailed and thorough reference to HTML5 and CSS3.
It is divided into three sections:

* HTML5 syntax and element description (chapters 1-4)
* CSS3 description and list of properties (chapter 5)
* HTML api and surrounding technologies (chapter 6)

It is immediately apparent that this book is indeed (as the title suggests) a reference book and not a textbook or a 'friendly' guide to client-side coding. Readers without prior technical knowledge and experience coding html and css and some JavaScript, will find this book very difficult to read and hence of limited use.

For readers with a stronger background, the book serves mainly as a reference list for the huge vocabularies of html5 and css3. It may be helpful in cases where some css property, html tag or attribute is suddenly 'forgotten' in the course of writing code, serving as a quick reminder with brief examples and a full list of options.

The book could also be used to learn new html tag and css3 properties.
One may read through the huge tables of chapter 3 (html) and chapter 5 (css3), encounter an unrecognized subject, and after reading the book's short explanation, look for longer discussions and live code examples on the web.

Reviewing the book this way, I encountered many tags, attributes and properties that were unfamiliar to me and thus learned quite a lot. For example, the book lists the cases in which 'closing' html tags may be omitted, and accompanies this with an almost amusing example of valid html5 code in which most closing tags as well as the <html> and tags are absent! (pp. 25-26).
I enjoyed also reading about some html5 unrecognized niceties like the 'download' and 'ping' attributes of the <a> tag, and so on.

May be the best HTML5 reference I have ever seen.

Designed for experienced webdesigner, but I would highly recommend it to beginners
as a supplement to a HTML5 for Beginners book.

The layout and presentation is the best I have ever seen in 32 years of programming!

Format: Paperback
This book could be identified as a quick reference, or you could call it a long cheat sheet. And I need exactly that: a comprehensive cheat sheet with illustrations: HTML/CSS is not a super complex topic, and I can get by using a nice cheat sheet. Giant reference books always intimidate to me, but this book delivers just the right balance of information.

The data is condensed and straight to the point. No comicality and not too much philosophical commentary, just raw data: syntax, elements, attributes, values, events, and plenty of sample code. The book also provides key concepts and definitions. Syntax is obviously based on the W3C documentation, but streamlined a bit. The book also provides very useful browser compatibility tables.

We own the initial edition book, and now we also purchased a bunch of the second edition copies, so I can relate. The first edition was pretty good, and this one is even more refined: more color pictures and more HTML5 APIs offered. The browser compatibility info is expanded to individual tags, CSS3 and APIs.

Maybe the hard copy version is good but this looks like someone scanned the whole book and turned it into a big PDF file. It is just not designed to be an ebook, hope I can return this.

I bought the first edition, used it for a year, and just now bought the second. Meantime, just after I ordered, the Third edition came out. I'm sure I'll be buying that one, too. Go straight for the gold - get the third edition. GREAT references!
