    Book Recommendations?

    Hey,

    I have a friend who's interested in exploring web design, and I was wondering if anyone had run into any really good books that they would recommend for an in-depth explanation to HTML but also introductions on topics like CSS, Javascript, and DHTML. Book recommendations for good design practice (i.e. usability, functionality, visual/graphical guidelines, etc.) might also be helpful. There are so many books out there, and I don't know how to sift through them. Even names of trusted publishers in the field might prove to be helpful. I learned totally by tutorials and experimentation, but there are faster ways to learn.

    Thanks a lot,
    Nate

    "Eric Meyer's On CSS" is a great read.

    Thanks...I was hoping for one book to cover HTML and introduce CSS, JS, and DHTML, but I'll keep the CSS book in mind.

    OReilly's definitive guide to html. It has some good css stuff in it too.

    I'm surprised no one has touted HTML Utopia Designing without Tables
    It is an excellant book.

    What you are asking for is enough to fill a bookshelf.

    A great place to dig in would also be: XHTML Example by Example. AARON E. WALSH and Dave Raggett.
