I do see a market for this kind of book, which provides 'just enough' information about web programming techniques.
At one extreme, you have expert web programmers who need an in-depth guide to a specific technology like PHP. At the other extreme you have people who just want to create a simple web page using a basic HTML editor. Somewhere in the middle you have a group of people like my target audience.
