Pros: Well written, clear, concise.
Cons:



I'm still reading it at the time of this review. I'm attempting to read it cover to cover before I "dip into" the samples of code that can be downloaded from the wrox.com to accompany the book.

It's written in a clear and concise manner, with printed examples of code.

Being up to date (at the time of this review) it explains why websites should be written in XHTML as opposed to just normal HTML, and then styled with CSS.

Which I felt is great, because so much of the online stuff only tell's you about each particular facility/app/subject whereas this book explain's where the different part's of web authoring overlap and makes sure that you know the differences between the differing part's.

It also point's out the pit fall's of using so called "WYSIWYG" graphic web building app's like Dreamweaver and frontpage.

Overall, an excellent book (IMO!)
