Taught myself HTML with this book. I still reference it frequently, though I should probably get something a little more up to date.
This is a critical reference book for any web developer's library.
Not "finished" but I have read what I needed to for now.
Just what's needed for those HTML questions you have...: If you do web development, you should have one solid HTML/XHTML reference guide on your bookshelf. This one ranks up there... HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide (6th Edition) by Chuck Musciano and Bill Kennedy. Although the CSS and XML sections are a little light, the core HTML and XHTML information is all you could ask for.

Contents: HTML, XHTML, and the World Wide Web; Quick Start; Anatomy of an HTML Document; Text Basics; Rules, Ima
This was the book I learned HTML from! It was very clear, great descriptions of browser support and caveats, plus all of the brand new HTML 4 stuff ( tags were my favorite!) There was lots of sample code, a lot of it about Kumquats... which I didn't believe was a real fruit until I finally saw one in real life, almost ten years later.
If you're teaching yourself HTML, you must own this book. It includes all the basics, along with sample pages coded and displayed. Very well explained.
Another book I've read for by Web publishing class. Very useful, but very long and dense. It will be a great reference work to have on my shelf!
Basic html coding skills still carry me a long way. This remains helpful, even after all these years!
This is my most tattered book. I look things up all the time. It is the best reference for HTML.
Quickly reviewed for e-pub class. May become source for recommended readings in future classes.

This is an excellent introduction to creating web pages using raw HTML commands.
required text for a class - not too difficult and interseting.
TK Keanini
Very good to have a book with both HTML and XHTML side by side.
Easy to understand and easy to use. Great Guide!

Another fine O'Reilly book.
