    "Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSS" by Ian Lloyd (second edition comes out soon)

    "HTML Utopia" by Rachel Andrew and Dan Shafer

    "The CSS Anthology" by Rachel Andrew.

    Do I really have to explain why I recommend them?

    Since you do practice 'semantic' coding, you can skip the explanation

    1. Bulletproof Web Design - This book really gives you an understanding in depth of 'how' coding can be minimal and the power of css. This book really opened up my eyes to a more 'semantic' approach.

    2. The Ultimate CSS Reference - This is a must have reference book. I am reading through it now and am learning 'more' than ever. A good read to further your knowledge on CSS.

    3. Transcending CSS - This book has brought me to my conclusion that 'html/css' NEED to be separated in all aspects. He really preaches about 'semantic' naming conventions. A must read!

    4. HTML Dog - A good book to give you an understanding of 'best' practices if you are not up to speed. You will learn trick-lets here and there. This book is easy to read and you might find some humor involved.

    5. Pro CSS Techniques - Another great book to further your knowledge on CSS. This book is for 'intermediate/advanced' css developers. If you are trying to push forward, this book is definitely for you.
