...but I want to make a point to Wrox Press. While the book is a valuable resource in terms of offering a fairly comprehensive overview as is commonly the case with the Beginning... series, there are two cases in which there is a glaring lack of professionalism. The most egregious of these is the chapter on FML. One of the authors has a company that produces a software tool that (ostensibly) allows you to make quick work of FML. This author wrote the chapter on FML. Surprise - the entire chapter is about how to use his company's software product. Furthermore, at the beginning of the book there is a passage that is essentially an indictment of Microsoft for alleged anticompetitive practices. I am not used to seeing such abominations as these in titles from Wrox Press; say what you will about Microsoft, the author's software, etc., the point is that none of it has anything to do with the subject at hand, on which Wrox Press typically focuses like a laser. The editors really dropped the ball in a couple place on this one - there were two authors who sorely needed to be kept in check.

My one complaint is that the publisher must have been rushed to get the book to press. It is team written and different chapters are written in different styles and don't relate easily to what is written in other chapters. It is much too verbose. The book could be about 2/3 the size without losing anything, but gaining some clarity.
The book is written at an intermediate/advanced level (I started using it in my advanced web pages class with great results). As a result, the reader should have a good grasp on HTML and how the web works before approaching this volume. For those individuals, it is an excellent reference.

As a webdesigner coming from HTML 3.2, it is not only quite good see a book written by the people knowing most of markup, but also I liked the easy to understand and clearly written approach to the idea behind this XHTML thing. I think, this book will help me as well as it will help one learning how to do webpages.

I already bought a lot of Computer-Books. But the Guys at Wrox really know what they are talking about. Because XHMTL is the forthcoming Standard in Webdesign, i highly recommend this Book to everyone who is into Webdesign. It is clearly written and the examples are (as always) nice and very useful. All i'm wondering now is, if there's a possibility to subscribe to Wrox-Press to get all the New Books ! Buy it !
