    Build your own web site the right way is probably more appropriate for a beginner. Its the same author as The Ultimate HTML Reference.

    This one is great: Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSS, but it needs to be in updated edition.

    It's a reference book, so it won't exactly teach you HTML. It can be a handy companion to a tutorial book, though, as well as a valuable resource for a more experienced developer.
