    HTML/XHTML/CSS book recommendations?

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a book that will provide me with a solid foundation in HTML, XHTML, and CSS. I am looking for a book instead of a website due to their portability--I'm will be reading it during the commute to/from school and on my lunch break at work.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are online then its good because online study is much better than books.
    Try this one: w3schools.com

    Books that I really enjoy reading are any of the O'Reilly books. I've bought 3 or 4 different ones from them, including one about HTML & XHTML. They're very easy to understand, and they always teach you new things at a comfortable pace.

    I highly suggest these books. But make sure you pay attention to what the book is for. Some are tutorials (those usually have the word "learning" in the title) and others are just pocket references, or advanced books that are follow-ups to the learning ones. Just make sure you get the right thing.

    I just checked out the O'Reilly website for what you are looking for.

    I'd check this out

    This book looks like just what you need.

    I know you wanted literature, but if I had to suggest a really awesome online tutorial, I would look at HTML Dog.

    Good Luck with your learning Slurmdog

    That will do just fine. If you are running some Linux distro, you should have SciTE (or something similar), which is also a great editor. There are a number of different things out there, Google-around until you find something you like.
