Until now, my websites looked great but have been coded with what seems like 'duct-tape and bubble-gum' methods, just for appearances and not for professionalism nor compliance. This book taught me all [that is] possible with simple HTML5 and CSS3 coding... What a game changer!
About the Author
Zak Ruvalcaba has been researching, designing, and developing for the web since 1995. As a full-time web developer, he's developed web applications for companies like Gateway, HP, Toshiba, IBM, Intuit, Peachtree, Dell, and Microsoft. As a full-time instructor, he's headed up the Front-End Web Developer Certificate Program in the San Diego Community College District, where he's responsible for running the program and developing the curriculum.
His development and teaching skills have come together in the technical books he's written in the past 15 years. When he discovered Murach Books, he became sold on their distinctive paired-pages style and has done all his latest books for them: a Dreamweaver CC book (the 6th edition of his original Dreamweaver title in 2001); an HTML5 and CSS3 book (the 3rd edition); and a jQuery book (the 2nd edition). He's a busy guy!

The structure of the book is ideal for my web development program. We can use Section 1 which contains all the basics for our first course in web development. The advanced material is in the next two sections and can be covered in any order. This allows instructors a great deal of flexibility in how material is taught and allows more advanced students to be as creative as they want. Combining a clear and straightforward approach to the basics with the chance to be creative and flexible is no easy task but Murach has done it.
Also, the book includes some very important information that seems lacking in textbooks designed for a college course. Murach emphasizes the development of a website as it is in the “real” world – through folder structure, detailed instructions about how to use an appropriate HTML editor (like Aptana), how to FTP, and much more. For my students who want to be prepared for the work world, this book is ideal!
An example of this can be found in the pages that discuss solutions to running HTML5 on browsers (Such and IE 7 and 8) that do not natively support HTML5 applications. In 2012, HTML5 was not widely available in most computers browsers. So the 2nd edition of this book described some basic techniques you could employ that allowed HTML5 code to be run on browsers that did not support it. In 2015, HTML5 is available on most computers browsers. So the instructions in the 3rd edition of this book describe more detailed techniques to ensure your application runs on browser that are not 100% HTML5 compatible.
The authors of this book go into great detail describing exactly how a specific HTML tag or CSS command works. They often include HTML and CSS code on the same page, so you can see how the CSS transforms the HTML into what is displayed on the web browser. This book also contains many diagrams that further enhance how different CSS commands work. One of my favorite diagrams in this book is where the authors pictorially diagramed how the CSS box model is laid out, and where each CSS attributes influences what is displayed in that box.
The book also contains material not found in the 2nd edition of this book. Some of the additional chapters found in the 3rd edition of this book are How to use responsive web design and How to use CSS3 translations, transforms, animations, and filters.
If found that 3rd Edition of Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3 book to be a great book on the subject. I found that it describes HTML5 and CSS3 better then any other book on the subject I have seen. I highly recommend this book if you are need to learn how to write applications in HTML5 and CSS3 and as a great reference book if you are already using these technologies and you need a good reference book.
