Well, I've changed my mind about this book. It's just too hard to find stuff in it, for me anyway. Maybe it's got a layout, index, TOC etc that is specifically designed to appeal to the sensibilities of much younger people than I. Maybe it's like Wired - it took me months of occasionally trying to read that before I finally was able to see a lot of things - the page numbers, the date on the cover, what the TOC was trying to tell me, what was important stuff on pages and w

I can’t recommend this book; there are several that do are better for introductory HTML and CSS. It’s quite broad, covering many Web technologies, but it’s not very deep. It focuses on HTML and CSS, but also touches on scripting and CMSs. It’s easy to read and full of colorful code snippets and examples, and it’s up-to-date (published 2011). My favorite chapters were those on mobile web design, HTML5, and CSS3. I also liked the many recommendations for useful sites, tools, and resources.

This book in the cover says "HTML,XHTML & CSS for dummies". A stereotype for books is that they are old and useless. The reason that the cover says "HTML,XHTML & CSS for dummies" without specifying the type is because this book was released right before when HTML 5 and CSS 3 were to be released.

The book is written from the stand point that you already have a basic understanding of how to use a computer and surf the internet.

In Part I: Getting to Know (X)HMTL and CSS, I became a bit too excited and ambitious. It was like learning a new language and the possibilities with web design became endless.

This book made me even more thankful for Wordpress. I was looking to get a basic understanding of HTML and CSS, and the authors delivered that and more. Now I have some clue when I look at the "text" tab on my Wordpress website. I made note of the book's website address and some of the sources so I learn more later.
Good for beginning-intermediate web site builders. The best thing I took from this are the sample templates and the useful links. Other than that, there was nothing new that I didn't know already.
This book was actually a helpful introduction to HTML for a computer-competent newbie. I would recommend it.

So far I'm on page 5. I'm going to learn these skills or get really good trying.
A little dry and outdated, but a nice intro to HTML.
Very helpful and useful. Would recommend.
