    Excellent book

    This book is great. This was my first HTML book. I found the tutorials easy to follow and I found them more useful than sitting and listening to my college professor. I quickly gained confidence in the basics of creating web pages. Other books were intimidating and seemed more like reference guides. I didn't know where to start. I would recommend any student wanting to learn HTML to start with this book.

    Bug Infested, Verbose, Pretty Pictures.

    Very high quality paper, printing, photos, and binding. But in my opinion... The content is low quality. If you have to read this book for a class, you have my sympathies. If you do not absolutely have to read Carey¿s book, then find another HTML book. XHTML claim: The cover says ¿Includes XHTML coverage throughout¿. I found precious little to support that. I did find XHTML code violations all over the book and code files. Next the errors: I downloaded the student files on 4/27/04. Every code file which I tested with XHTML code validation (strict, transitional, and frameset) failed miserably. There are case (upper/lower) violations. There are mostly tag closing (xhtml) errors throughout. There are unbalanced tags like in figure 5-19 on page 5-20. There are missing quotes like in figure 5-29 on page 5-27. There are instructional (bold) typos like item 3 on page 5-33. There is the demo on the author¿s web site which does not work (as of this date) on page 6-46. There is the JavaScript if/else error repeated five (5) times on pages 8-31 and 8-32 before getting it right at the bottom of 8-32. There are others. Verbose: Carey uses too many words, stories, and pages to convey a limited amount of HTML. Maybe he should switch to dime store novels so that he can entertain people who want that. Off Purpose: Cary spent 2 out of 10 chapters on JavaScript when he should have used the ink to finish the job of covering HTML and CSS. JavaScript is too big of a job to cover in 2 chapters and he did not finish either HTML or CSS first. This makes for a disjointed and incomplete book. Publisher errors: What was the publisher doing to pass this many problems? This confirms something I read from another reviewer regarding Course Technologies. I doubt quality is very important at Course Technologies / Thompson Learning. These guys are off my ¿buy list¿. The book does have some good information and value, but there are too many problems which get into the way. I wish I had not purchased this very expensive book, or had not marked in it, so that it could be returned.

    Very Highly Recommend this book

    This is a really good book. It has a series of hands on tutorials. Most other books just say how this works or how that works. This book guides you through the tutorials and points out all the little details and pitfalls you need to watch out for. If you're new to HTML (XHTML), this is the book I would recommend.
