About this HTML reference
There are plenty of reference books on the market, but how do you decide on which one to buy? Which one is the most up-to-date? Which one has the best mixture of factual detail combined with real world common sense? You’re looking at it!
The Ultimate HTML Reference was written from the ground up , completed early 2008. Unlike many other reference books, it is not a rewrite of an HTML reference book that first saw the light of day back in 1995 and for which rewrites mean 'adding extra features and addressing typos and factual errors but not questioning the usefulness of the existing content'. In this HTML reference, you're provided with:
- All of the W3C-approved HTML elements
- All of the W3C-approved HTML attributes
- Browser compatibility charts and warnings for browser HTML quirks
All of the content is laid out in a clear, easy to read layout (which some reviewers are raving about: "the aesthetics of this book are outstanding. The typography and layout are superb").
In addition to the approved W3C elements and attributes, the Ultimate HTML Reference also includes non-standard markup which is universally supported (but states clearly that this is non-standard and could/should probably be avoided); out-of-date and often badly supported elements (hello, Netscape 4!) are shown the door. If you're looking for bad advice, you should try another HTML reference book ;-)
