Web Standards Solutions provides a good look into the best practices for HTML & CSS content, and the reasoning behind them. I can't honestly say I took anything practical away from this book that I didn't know about before, but it was a good read regardless.

This used to be a standard reference work but is probably getting a bit long-in-the-tooth.
