I had to use this book for my Web Dev. class. It has typos in it, which makes it dificult for the beginer to figure out. This is the first HTML book I have read and it's ok I guess, only because I cannot comapre it to any other books. However, the instructions are not 'step by step' they are somewhat 'implied instructions' so you must figure out what what it's trying to ask you to do. It has gotten me very frustrated at times because they do not tell/show you where or how to begin.
