If you want to get into developing web sites, the most important thing you need is a solid understanding of Hypertext Markup Language, or HTML—the language that the majority of web site content is written in.
This book is forward-thinking because all the featured code and techniques are standards-compliant and demonstrate best practices—so you won't waste time on outdated, bad techniques. Your web pages will work properly in most web browsers and be accessible to web users with disabilities, easily locatable with popular search engines, and compact in file size.
Even if you already know HTML and CSS basics, this book will still be useful to you. It features comprehensive reference tables at the back, so you can look up all of the troublesome attributes, codes, and properties quickly and easily.
Bruce Lawson and Gez Lemon acted as technical reviewers of Beginning HTML with CSS and XHTML. Bruce and Gez are active members of the Web Standards Project's Accessibility Task Force, and have helped ensure that the book follows guidelines and best practices.

I am a true noobie when it comes to making websites. I got excited when I heard about Joomla and how easy it makes creating a web page. I wanted to also learn the background behind the WYSIWYG's like Joomla. It pretty much does the work for you, but I am also interested in how web pages really work. I don't like school, I don't like taking classes, but this book has been a great teacher by it self. I have read up to chapter three and still going back through the first chapters which cover the basics of XHTML and CSS. I am on the way. I highly recommend this book to anyone without a real understanding of how web pages are made. I 've read through over manuals on different topics and this book beats em all by far!
