The Table of Contents includes a link to an "Alphabetical List of Elements." If this were a physical book, I'd leaf through it to find the element I'm looking for. As a Kindle version, I can click to this link, but then I have to go page-by-page to get to the item I want.
This book covers all of the fundamental concepts of (X)HTML, including the differentiation between HTML and XHTML. You will get a complete list of elements (a.k.a. tags) along with all attributes that apply to each element. This book also does a good job of identifying the elements and attributes that are deprecated for XHTML. Examples of each element are included, but they are very generic and simplistic. Overall, you get the essentials of what you need to know about (X)HTML; therefore this book is a must have for web developers.
This book does not contain an index. As far as the elements are concerned, an index is not necessary. They are in alphabetical order, so an index of the elements would be redundant. Honestly, every time I needed to reference this book, I was able to locate exactly what I was looking for without the need of an index.
Yes, this can replace a boatload of other books. And, yes, sometimes it's still faster to just do a Google search. But this book has earned a permanent spot next to my computer --until the next edition comes out.
Good job O'reilly! Thank you for another great book.
This is a basic and dry dictionary of HTML and XHTML tags. It's really okay, although I can't really see the benefit of having this little book over googling the tag and seeing examples of its use etc.
Maybe, I could see having the ebook version and searching through that when you want to look up a tag.
