    great book!

    Book explains in a very easy to understand manner, how to create websites using XHTML and CSS. Although it teaches XHTML, and the world is moving inot the HTML 5 era, the book is still valid because all XHTML tags are valid in HTML5. THe book has a very easy to follow website which the reader will structure with XHTML and style with CSS. The content and style of the website get more complicated with each chapter.

    I recommend this for anyone wanting to learn website development, as I have tried learning through several books, and they were all too technical heavy and written for MIT grads ;-), but this one is very understandable and well organized.
