4.0 von 5 Sternen 2nd Ed now has HTML4, CSS + XML, but missing Perl Quick Ref,
The book excells as a quick reference to these and virtually all other webmaster areas, including Apache server configuration, CGI variables and much more. You just can't beat it. It replaces half a dozen books costing thirty or fourty quid each!
Now on to the nitpicking... and why I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
I was exceptionally disappointed to see that the Perl Quick Reference that I had been so fond of in the first edition had now been replaced with a mere overview of the cgi.pm module; and that a quick reference to the PHP scripting language appeared to have taken Perl's place.
Yes, I have other Perl references. Heck, I've *already* got the Perl Pocket Reference, Perl In A Nutshell and Linux In A Nutshell (which includes a Perl Quick Ref). But that's not the point.
The second edition, like the first, sells itself as the only book you'll keep on your desktop (as opposed to on your shelf). Sorry, but with the Perl Quick Ref missing, this just isn't true anymore. Perl is the number one CGI programming language and the number one quick fix language. Whatever you want to do, you can rattle up a quick and dirty Perl solution in seconds. PHP just isn't up in that category. I need a Perl Quick Reference on my desk at all times.
O'Reilly, *please*, put back the Perl Quick Ref and earn yourself the full five stars.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The HOTTEST Book on a Wemaster's Shelf!,
This book is seriously a MUST have! I was so impressed with the first edition (1996) that I bought the 2nd, and I am even more impressed. I love both these books SO much that I literally carry them around with me. Probably the BEST and most compact reference you can buy!
Countless times I found myself forgetting a simple thing - such as the name of a certain HTML tag or the return type of a specific function, so I pulled out this book and got my answer in seconds. Don't pass this one up! DON'T! I promise you that this little Red and White book will forever be your best friend!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Reference For Any Web Designer,
While this is definitely not a tutorial book, it does contain lots of reference material and I learned a few new tricks reading through this book. It's one I'll know I'll refer to again and again when I have a question about how to do a particular task while working on one of my websites.
Also recommended: HTML 4 Visual Quick Start Guide by Elizabeth Castro; and UNIX in A Nutshell by Arnold Robbins.

Its 8:00am on Monday. Your boss pulls you into his office and looks you over seriously. He says: Thompson, I want to put our company on the web. Do you know how to do that? I've been told I need to hire a Webmaster, where do I find one? You, being egar to please, tell her/him that you can put the company on the web and you can be the Webmaster. The fisrt thing you do is go out and buy this book. But that is the only situation that I can recommend this book for. I keep it around as a reminder of what my job is but it doesn't go into enough detail about any of the topics it covers. It may have been more apropriately titled: Your responsiblities as a Webmaster. Good Reference, but not good enough for the experienced.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Desk Reference for the Web Professional,
If you already know the web and just need a book to look up particular things, because hey, no one can have it all memorized, everybody has to look something up once in a while, this book is for you. I have seen no other book that can pack that much information in such a small space and still be easy to look up just what you need, it has tables on everything from HTML to PHP3 and even the new XML, if you need to look up a tag in HTML because you cannot remember it's properties, just go look in the table, if you want to quickly learn a new topic, it can help you there too, organized in sections from HTML to Apache Server Administration, this book is the ultimate resource for the web professional.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent as a Reference Book.,

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great reference,
This book like all of the books in the Nutshell series is great reference material. They seem to know just what and how much material into the book to make it one of the best. It covers basics on all the concepts you need to know for web mastering. When you need to look something up, this is the first place I recommend you go. Almost every time you'll find what you are looking for here.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Please Disregard Review from Osaka, Japan Below,
1.0 von 5 Sternen Should be updated to be usefull,
This book is too old. In the chapter "11. CGI Environment Variables", they do not describe the variable "HTTP_HOST" which is defined in HTTP/1.1. The variable is used very often in CGI. Configuration file formats for Apache/NCSA are described in the same section, while no one is using NCSA these days. The description is based on old version of Apache.
5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book to have,
Either you are a seasoned IT professional or a relatively new player, this book is good to have. It will take you to a tour of how todays' WWW work. It does not have the most detailed reference on everything about Perls (its object oriented features, for example) but for what's been produced, it is worth the price ! Get it !
