I am new to HTML/XHTML and wanted a definitive reference book that told me about EVERY HTML tag - and exactly what were and weren't the correct ways to use them. All the other books cover useful snippets here and there, but they aren't exhaustive.

That being said, this is not a good, general introduction to Web page design

That being said, this is not a good, general introduction to Web page design. Rather, the book works best as a reference for those with a solid, intermediate knowledge of HTML who want to contextualize what they know and move on to the next step. This is a book about HTML, and it does not cover all aspects of making Web pages.

The book is up-to-date, covering HTML 4, Netscape Navigator 4, Microsoft .

The book is up-to-date, covering HTML 4, Netscape Navigator 4, Microsoft In. The book is up-to-date, covering HTML 4, Netscape Navigator 4, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4, and the various extensions of each. HTML: The Definitive Guide is aimed at beginners as well as those who have more practice in Web-page creation.

HTML is changing so fast it's almost impossible to keep up with developments. How do you know what's real, and how do you use it? The third edition of HTML: The Definitive Guide brings it all together for you. It is the most comprehensive book available on HTML today. It covers Netscape Navigator 4.5, Internet Explorer 4.0, HTML, JavaScript, Style sheets, Layers, and all of the features supported by the popular Web browsers. Learning HTML is like learning any new language, computer or human. Most students first immerse themselves in examples. Studying others is a natural way to learn, making learning easy and fun. Imitation can take you only so far, though. It's as easy to learn bad habits through imitation as it is to acquire good ones. The better way to become HTML-fluent is through a comprehensive reference that covers the language syntax, semantics, and variations in detail and that helps you distinguish between good and bad usage.HTML: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition helps you both ways: the authors cover every element of HTML in detail, explaining how each element works and how it interacts with other elements. Many hints about HTML style help you write documents ranging from simple online documentation to complex marketing and sales presentations. With hundreds of examples, the book gives you models for writing your own effective Web pages and for mastering advanced features, like style sheets and frames.HTML: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition shows you how to:

Use style sheets and layers to control a document's appearanceCreate tables, from simple to complexUse frames to coordinate sets of documentsDesign and build interactive forms and dynamic documentsInsert images, sound files, video, Java applets, and JavaScript programsCreate documents that look good on a variety of browsersA handy quick reference card listing HTML tags is included.

This is all you need to write HTML WITHOUT a designer. I use Active Server Pages and COM objects to generate dynamic HTML, so I rarely have the luxury of a designer like DreamWeaver or NetObjects Fusion. This book tells me exactly how to do what I want to do (even those pain in the ear <TABLE> definitions). It even tells the reader which tags are available for Netscape Only and IE Only. I would highly recommend this book.

AMAZON, SHAME ON YOU!!!!! You should state what edition and the date copyrighted in the book information and indicate whether there are newer editions.

Watch out. Though Amazon has it covered by the "look inside", the book entitled only HTML is the 3rd edition of a book that is in it's sixth Edition. Amazon has combined all the reviews for all the editions. This should not be done!!!!!!! I have always felt comfortable buying from Amazon, no longer. I did have a seller (ordered through Amazon)send me this edition for the full price of the 6th. He got the sixth to me, but it took my time to get it corrected. The 3rd edition is probably not even worth the $10 for the used edition, but is certainly not worth the $20 for the new. Don't be fooled! I can't believe Amazon is stooping to this sort of a con. The most serious problem is that much of what you learn in this edition is being put out to pasture in the next 5 years.

There is a World Wide Consortium that is trying to standardize language and browswers. HTML is being replace in the interim with XHTML and eventually XML. A new, more powerful, formating language, CSS, Cascading Style Sheets, is replacing any formating in HTML.

Many of the reviews you see are for the 6th edition. It does have errors (it doesn't stick to the more stringent XHTML as it should, and the redundancy is annoying. Castro's is annoying in that she sectionalizes the code and it's not clear at first what she's doing. I haven't yet seen the others that are offered.

I have been using HTML: The Definitive Guide as my general HTML reference book since the first edition; it is the book I reach for when I want to check the use of some obscure tag or attribute.
That being said, this is not a good, general introduction to Web page design. Rather, the book works best as a reference for those with a solid, intermediate knowledge of HTML who want to contextualize what they know and move on to the next step.
This is a book about HTML, and it does not cover all aspects of making Web pages. Such things as DOM, DHTML and JavaScript are really beyond the scope of this book, and are covered in other, also excellent, O'Reilly publications.
If one is serious about Web design then one needs to learn HTML and code it by hand; The Definitive Guide is an excellent resource for this.

I knew almost zero about HTML when I picked up this book. It helped me quickly dive into HTML and start creating my own pages. It is also a great reference book now that I am fluent with HTML. It is well organized and well-written. The notations of what tags work with which browsers (IE vs Navigator) are extremely useful. The book is very precise and complete.
Now the one downside. The book is boring. I could only get through the first three chapters before putting it down. The remaining chapters (most of which I have gone through completely later) are very useful as a reference and you may want to skip them until you feel like jumping into more advanced topics.
After you are fluent in HTML, keep it around as a good reference.
X-MEN
I purchased the 3rd edition after the 2nd edition became too dated to be generally as useful. As HTML had adapted and grown quite a bit between 1996 and 1998, I expected the book to grow considerably as well. After all, it is the "definitive guide." Well, I was a bit underwhelmed by the rather cursory treatment of newer topics like Cascading Style Sheets (CCS), using Javascript, and DHTML. Granted, these topics could, and possibly should, be better covered in a more advanced book, but I'm still waiting for that. As the title of this review says, don't buy this for _complete_ coverage of all things HTML. _Do_ buy the book if you're just starting out, as the core HTML examples (most of which are carried over from the 2nd Edition) are really good. But for advanced users looking for help on newer topics, don't bother with this reference (although you probably already have it).

This book really covers HTML 4.0 in detail!
I gave it 4 stars only because the authors keep discouraging the usage of HTML for format tricks and appearance issues. Although content is important, appearance is VERY important if you want to look professional graphially and this sometimes requires "hacks". The authors need to realize that instead of repeatedly saying it's unneeded and to not "waste your time trying to force HTML to do things it was never designed to do. (page 10)" That's just a naive idea and the only thing that I felt was very annoying about the message they were trying to preach.

I have searched for the ultimate text on web design, and coding for some time and come to the conclusion that no one book has it all but as far as a good foundation goes, this book is great. Clear explanations without being too wordy or facile, I would recommend this to any one who is starting HTML or wants a solid understanding of what's available. It's scant on pictures and keeps explanatory code to a minimum but there is still a good balance to help lay the foundations for good coding. On a negative note, for tricks and tips, look somewhere else but for the beginner or practiced webbie, this is a gem.
