After years of using spacer GIFs, layers of nested tables, and other improvised solutions for building your web sites, getting used to the more stringent "standards-compliant" design that is de rigueur among professionals today can be intimidating.

With standards-driven design, keeping style separate from content is not just a possibility but a reality. You no longer use HTML and XHTML as design tools, but strictly as ways to define the meaning and structure of web content. And Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are no longer just something interesting to tinker with, but a reliable method for handling all matters of presentation, from fonts and colors to page layout. When you follow the standards, both the site's design and underlying code are much cleaner. But how do you keep all those HTML and XHTML tags and CSS values straight?

Jennifer Niederst-Robbins, the author of our definitive guide on standards-compliant design, Web Design in a Nutshell, offers you the perfect little guide when you need answers immediately: HTML and XHTML Pocket Reference. This revised and updated new edition takes the top 20% of vital reference information from her Nutshell book, augments it judiciously, cross-references everything, and organizes it according to the most common needs of web developers. The result is a handy book that offers the bare essentials on web standards in a small, concise format that you can use carry anywhere for quick reference. This guide will literally fit into your back pocket.

Inside HTML and XHTML Pocket Reference, you'll find instantly accessible alphabetical listings of every element and attribute in the HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 Recommendations. This is an indispensable reference for any serious web designer, author, or programmer who needs a fast on-the-job resource when working with established web standards.

(X)HTML Pocket Reference

By David DelMonte

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly HTML and XHTML Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

This is a fantastic reference book for anyone with even a limited knowledge of HTML/XHTML. It's small enough to not get in the way (and be shoved on a bookshelf), really well written, concise and clear.

It's organized by tag. Each is described and most have an example.

Thanks to Jennifer and to OReilly for a great effort.

Handy Handbook

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly HTML and XHTML Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

An excellent reference when you just need to find it fast. Once you've learned the principles of using (x)HTML you don't want to be forced into committing every tag and attribute to memory. Having a reference like this saves time and doesn't sacrifice any clarity or completeness for its small size.
