High expectations crushed

I love dummies books so I had high expectations up until chaper 6. I actually started to feel ill trying to grasp all of the tag information contained in this 1000(actually 100)page chapter. The problem was that there were no examples in this relatively huge chapter to help clarify all of the information.Granted, examples for each tag were supplied on the CD which came with the book but there are 100s of sites out there which will gladly teach HTML for free!I wanted a good book because I didnt want to HAVE to be glued to my computer to memorize tags. This book could have been awsome if it didnt rely so heavily on the CD.The CD should compliment the info in the book- not suppliment it.An additional 50-100 pages of backup examples could have saved this book in my humble opinion.

Touches on basic concepts of engineering

An industry standard that no software professional can claim to be well-read without.
I was pleased to see (finally) the addition of two chapters on Formal Methods in Software Engineering. This was an unfortunate omission in the third edition that is now corrected.
The price is a bit overinflated, as with most texts on the subject.
Makes for an excellent companion, when compared and contrasted with other current industry texts.
