For years, Elizabeth Castro’s HTML Visual QuickStart Guides have been a breath of fresh air for anyone who needs to master web page construction. Her books are friendly, welcoming, and immensely usable -- and Peachpit’s clean, open series design makes them a pleasure to work with. The Sixth Edition fits the profile. It also adds coverage of some very hot topics: notably RSS feeds, podcasting, and layout for handhelds.
But then, it’s been a while since this was “only” an HTML book. Castro thoroughly covers XHTML and CSS2 style sheets, too. (Nice touch: coverage of using tables and CSS together, to get the best of both worlds.) There’s even a chapter on attracting visitors with keywords, crawler pages, and other techniques. To make the book even more useful, there are appendices on practically everything: CSS properties and values, HTML/XHTML elements, attributes, symbols, characters, tools, and more.
