Good for Beginners, August 24, 2006
I have a self-taught knowledge of XHTML, and I got this book hoping to learn more about it. I studied it from cover to cover, and, though I would not claim to me a master or expert of the subject, I definately have a broder, sturdier understanding of XHTML. The book provided good examples, so the reader can clearly understand the lesson. I was also surprised to find that it is strikingly different than online tutorials in that it does not simply define tags or provide template-like code for the reader to copy into notepad. Instead, it breaks down the tags and the code, so the reader can fully understand it and manipulate it in his/her own code. I was also surprised to find that it was not at all like the technical reference books that I am used to. The Mastering XHTML book does not assume that the reader has any knowledge of XHTML when starting the book. So even if you know absolutely nothing about XHTML, you will be able to understand this book.
It is definately for beginners, though. So if you're formally trained or already at the O'Reilly Definitive Guide level, you will be horribly bored. If, however, you are like I was and are looking for something to build a sturdy foundation about XHTML, you will be pleased. This is also a good book for transitioning from HTML to XHTML.
