Html Mastery: Semantics, Standards, and Styling by Paul Haine
Why another HTML book? Well, there are a lot of basic HTML guides out there, and a lot are quite outdated. This book is different-it is aimed at web designers and developers who have already mastered the basics of HTML and web design, but want to take their markup further, making it leaner and more semantically rich, for a more efficient, more usable/accessible web site. HTML Mastery does all that and more, showing all of the HTML tags available, including less commonly used ones, where and how to use them, and clever styling and scripting techniques that can be employed to take advantage of them on your web site. In addition, the book also looks at some of the advanced semantic tools that look to further improve the usability and semantic value of your sites-an entire chapter is devoted to Microformats, and a nod is given to XHTML 2.0 and Web Applications 1.0-web standards of the future.
