The Ultimate HTML Referenceby Ian Lloyd
Synopses & Reviews
Sitting at the foundation of every site is HTML. It's the only language that's essential to a web site's very existence. On the surface HTML may seem simple but there's much more to it that meets the eye. With different versions, many infrequently used elements and attributes, and varying ways that browsers interpret the language, only a comprehensive and up-to-date reference, like this book, has it completely covered.
The Ultimate HTML Reference is your definitive resource for mastering HTML. The entire language is clearly and concisely covered, along with browser compatibility details, working examples, and easy-to-read descriptions. Authored by one of the world's most renowned HTML experts, this is a comprehensive reference that you'll come back to time and time again.

Book News Annotation:
Lloyd (Accessify.com) is a recognized expert in the field of web development and standards, and he has written this reference guide to the HTML language for both programmers and fellow web developers. The author stresses the simplicity of this programming language, and at the same time reveals hidden features that allow HTML to be interpreted differently according each browser. Step-by-step instruction and plenty of print screens allow the reader to explore every element and attribute of the language, and plenty of exercises and examples are supplied that illustrate the flexibility of HTML as well.

About the Author
Ian Lloyd runs Accessify.com, a site dedicated to promoting web accessibility and providing tools for web developers. His personal site 'Blog Standard Stuff', ironically, has nothing to do with standards for blogs (it's a play on words), although there is an occasional standards-related gem to be found there.
Ian works full-time for Nationwide Building Society where he tries his hardest to influence standards-based design ("to varying degrees!"). He is a member of the Web Standards Project, contributing to the Accessibility Task Force. Web standards and accessibility aside, he enjoys writing about his trips abroad and recently took a 'year out' from work and all things web (but then ended up writing more in his year off than he ever has). He finds most of his time being taken up by a demanding old lady (relax, it's only his old Volkswagen camper van).
Ian recently wrote his first book for SitePoint entitled 'Build Your First Web Site the Right Way with HTML and CSS' (in which he teaches web standards-based design to the complete beginner).
