Excellent book for getting started with HTML5 and CSS3
Great resource for developers just getting started with web development using HTML5 and CSS3. Good introductory coverage of using CSS for page layout and formatting. Covers HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery topics needed to develop a web page from start to finish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book starts off slowly. It begins by explaining such basic
The book uses the usual Murach style of displaying text on the left pages and pictures and code on the right. That format doesn’t always work for me but in this book it’s really useful. It lets you see easily the page you're building as it is explained and later it lets you see the code as it is explained.
Overall this book provides a nice balance between starting from scratch and covering more advanced topics with some breadth. If you’re a complete novice who’s intimidated by computers and you just want to put up a small web site to share your vacation photos, this book covers a lot more material than you need, so you may want to look for a fluffier book (or just use one of the many photo sharing services floating around on the Internet). If you want a decent introduction to HTML5 and CSS 3 programming, this book will get you up to speed and into some pretty advanced topics quickly, even if you have only limited experience with web programming. Then you'll be ready to look for a more advanced book to learn about really advanced topics.

Great Intro to HTML5 and CSS3
With the introduction of HTML5 comes lots of new features that will enhance your existing web sites and make them more accessible to mobile users. Every site should be taking advantage of these new features. I enjoyed the rich detail and examples with each topic. It was a pleasure to see coverage of Jquery and Jquery Mobile in this book. The advanced HMTL5 topics toward the back of the book gave me a head start on the new features like Geolocation and web storage. I hope Murach will consider publishing an entire book dedicated to these advanced HTML5 features in the near future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3 begins by providing a general over
I found this book to be a solid resource on web development fundamentals, and I’ve always liked the concept of paired pages that Murach incorporates into all of their books.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone new to web development or anyone wanting to learn the new features that HTML5 and CSS bring to the web development arena.
