This book almost got 5 stars from me. It's hard to believe that a VISUAL QuickStart Guide (placing emphasis on the Visual) AND an expert author on FORMATTING through CSS, the author failed to apply these principles to better aid the reader learn the material. This deficiency is found in many of the places in which she outlines the steps for doing something. She writes in bold what to type with the attribute and value all in the same font and weight. Visually it's not clear what is actually required code and what is a placeholder for something else. You need to continue reading the explanations to grasp what exactly to type. A common computer book convention is to format differently what one literally types, like the attribute name, from what is a placeholder, such as the value or what changes. What you exactly type as you see would be in bold for example and what you substitute for something else would be in normal weight and in italics. It was really done the same everywhere. One never knows for sure which way it will be since sometimes one really types everything as it is written and at other times one doesn't. It's a good thing that with newer editions coming out of the woodwork very often the author can QuickStart to remedy this problem for the next edition.
