    how to learn xhtml - which books to start with?

    Hi,

    I've now taken my skills in PHP and MySQL far enough to build some real websites. And I've started to play with CSS. What I need know is knowledge in XHTML (since I don't know HTML, I see no reason to start there).

    What good books on the subject XHTML can you recommend?

    www.w3schools.com would probably be a good place to start .

    As would http://www.htmldog.com/

    The tutorials say "HTML", but it's really XHTML. And the CSS tuts are great too.

    I don't think you really need to get a book that only covers "XHTML", but you might want to check out Zeldman's "Designing With Web Standards" book. It covers not only XHTML, but CSS, accessabilty and more.

    I've got that one. As well as Eric Meyer's Eric Meyer on CSS. What I need - what I think I need at least - is a got technical reference to XHTML.

    Eric Meyer's "On CSS" is an awesome book on CSS. You could probably learn XHTML just by doing his projects. I wouldn't buy a book, or a reference on XHTML because it really isn't that complicated, and there's not many tags.
