HTML and CSS books

I'm looking to purchase a book that I can reference to from time to time and something to help with my studies.

I've checked out Jon Duckett's book for html and css but I heard that it was apperently very basic

Has anyone read Jon Duckett's book and could let me know how they found it to be or maybe has another recommendation. Thanks :)

Hi Jade

I would say go for the Jon Duckett's book. Its one of the best out there!

I've never really been one for books, they do become outdated with the speed of change in our industry.

Another free useful place to learn and read about html + css is on http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

I ended up buying Jon Duckett's book, had a quick look through it already and it has some pretty awesome stuff in it!

Thanks for the reply! :D
