2nd Edition, March 2004. Stay away from it!

It's the last O'Reilly book I get!This "guide" does not mention what elements are supported by what browsers. Doesn't even mention what is part of the CSS1 or CSS2 standards! (it only mentions these items sometimes within the text, but nowhere else, not even in the pourly formatted reference at the end of the book).It does a good job detailing how to use the elements but that's about it.I think that Thomas Powell's "HTML & XHTML, The Complete Reference" does a excellent job explaining CSS and certainly has a better CSS reference in the 2 chapters dedicated to CSS (it's an XHTML book after all, so don't get it if all you need is CSS).
I have not checked other books written by Meyer but this 2nd edition is not a "Definite Guide"!Check your bookstore and do a good comparison before spending money on this book!

Excellent book for a beginner

I am an experienced network administrator and the IS director of a large firm. I've never learned a programming language and felt that it was time that I did. I've tried several books but none of them worked for me. They all seemed disorganized and moved at a slow pace.
All that's changed since I found Deitel's Visual Basic .NET How to Program. I'm making progress on a daily basis and every minute I spend with this book rewards me with a learning experience.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone but especially to beginners like my self that want/need to learn outside the structured classroom.

a good C book but not a reference or turtorial

the book talks all the interesting aspects of C, and very useful if you are familiar with it. but not a good book if you need one for reference.
