This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself HTML, CSS, and JavaScript All in One (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
From the rumors I've heard, Microsoft is trying to push JavaScript as the programming language for Windows 8. I hope not. C# is pure awesome, but that's besides the point. If that is true, you will want to wrap your skills around JavaScript, and this is a really nice place to start. The Sams books are always top rate for easy, comprehensive instruction. I loathe to go anywhere else.

The chapters on HTML (and a bit of XHTML) and CSS are excellent as well. Those take up the first half of the book, and are covered in depth.

For someone first getting in to Web Programming, this is a fine start. It covers everything, from finding a hosting solution to coding for enhanced readability. You'd be hard pressed to find a gentler, more effective introductory guide.

For someone more familiar with Web Programming, who might want to update their skills, or might be coming from a different scripting language, such as Perl or VB Script, the content is very well organized for you to jump strictly to what you need.

Most of the developers in my office (except the one who hates books) have borrowed my copy for a day or two, then bought a copy for themselves.
