  1. Review by Kiwi BIM for HTML Dog: The Best-Practice Guide to XHTML and CSS Rating: This book is not a comprehensive encyclopedia of every CSS nuance, but it presents all the main areas in a very clear, but not dumbed-down manner. Basically it answered my three questions:

    1. I wanted to re-write an older web site using CSS and modern HTML web stds, so where do I start?

    2. What is my best approach?

    3. Why would I want to do it that way?

    So along the way it clarified for me how I should use divs for page structure, improve my navigation lists, specify font size in the best manner, and most of all how to use css in a structured way with minimal rewriting of styles etc for subtle changes in page requirements.

    The book is probably most useful if you want to follow his emphasis and use XHTML Strict with CSS.

    Very nicely written, very cleanly laid out. The associated website is useful, but the book stands alone as a very useful reference or starter for someone wanting to design their pages in an effective standards-based way.

  2. Review by 45Caliber for HTML Dog: The Best-Practice Guide to XHTML and CSS Rating: I spent some time really digging into other books in this category (library) with the intention of getting up to speed with modern web coding and best practices. I found this text to be the most useful, both as a learning resource and future reference guide and so, HTML Dog is now on my shelf. Note: The book is meant as a companion to an extensive online archive, and works well in this regard, as the more gimmicky (read: “fad”) techniques are best excluded from the printed text.

  3. Review by generalExpert for HTML Dog: The Best-Practice Guide to XHTML and CSS Rating: This is a great book for beginning HTML and CSS quick and easy to read also with an accompanying website. I find myself referring to it all the time. I’ve read it in full 3 times now just for heck of it. I really would also recommend the “Head First” titles. I swear by those to start learning in a particular subject.
