    Good Primer for Beginners

    Speaking as a Beginner, this book answered a lot of questions for me and clarified many of the statements I have read in other text. Uncluttered & well written, this book still manages to cover a lot of ground explaining terms and differences concerning HTML,XHTML,XML,etc.,. The combination of both Text & Visual examples in the book made the subject matter that much easier to learn & comprehend. The generous Appendixes in the back of the book were a nice bonus as well.
