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.
