NOT HTML 5,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HTML5 24-Hour Trainer (Paperback)
This is not an HTML 5 book - it's an HTML book with an Appendix on a few new features found in HTML 5. If you don't know HTML at all, then it's a decent place to start (although I'd recommend the "For Dummies" book instead - for any version). But if you are an HTML programmer and want to move on to full HTML 5 either for web sites or web apps then this book is useless - you can get much more useful information and examples online with a quick Google search. I wasted my money on this book because I read the title, am familiar with other Wrox pubs and saw the high rating by others (but carelessly neglected to read the reviews to see that this book is simply a lightweight HTML beginner's primer with a bad title).
