Format: Paperback
Being a web designer from the birth of the web, I am well aware of the browser inconsistencies and implementation issues of technologies caused by the lack of consensus. In my opinion, "Web Standards: Mastering HTML5, CSS3, and XML" is the most comprehensive book on web standards, because most books with a title containing "Web Standards" usually provide technology descriptions only that are often limited to the discussion of markup and style sheets, thus oversimplifying web standardization to writing valid HTML and valid CSS. In fact, there are far more web standards than the ones that speficy markup or styles, as described in the book in detail. Full standard compliance also covers proper serving, accurate settings for character encoding, valid news feeds, valid metadata annotations, valid XML, valid implementation of objects and scripts, as well as browser and resolution independence. Even the markup should meet additional criteria on accessibility, document structure, semantics, and interoperability. "Web Standards: Mastering HTML5, CSS3, and XML" covers the UTF-8 character encoding, the MIME types, HTML5 APIs, CSS3 modules, SVG, MathML, RDF, XML serializations, Semantic Web standards and machine-readable metadata, accessibility, and standardization concerns. The book has a dedicated chapter on validation, which is a fundamental task in website standardization, however, it is still missing from all the similar titles I've read so far.

The reader gets a wonderful mixture of theory and practical techniques. The book provides not only a review of web standards, but also a huge number of sample code to demonstrate coding from scratch. The code listings benefit from the hand coding expertise of the author.

Format: Paperback
Well written with fresh up to date content on web site standards for development. Helped me quickly understand important design techniques and aspects for web design, which is important for development of professional websites for mass viewers. Useful for study as well as quick reference to subjects. Contains easy to read theory and code examples, with lots of things I did not know.

I have a lot of HTML experience and was looking for a book to help me learn about new HTML 5 features. This book was useful and made it easy to incorporate new features into my existing code. That said, I found the organization a bit odd. Overall, a useful guide but not without flaws.

Web Standards would make a good reference book for advanced users, however, for someone wanting to learn HTML 5 it lacks any exercises, or tutorials to help you move beyond HTML 4.0. Save it for when you are already comfortable with HTML 5.
