the "official" perl book


This book, along with "Perl Cookbook" are considered the official resources for Perl information. Although this book is not the best choice for the first time programmer. It does explain things somewhat clearly, they are written from a somewhat technical perspective. And any type of crossover information is not explain so you MUST read each chapter clearly before going to the next one. But if you already know some programming then this book will make sense. I;m not bashing the book, as you can see I gave it 4 stars, I'm just presenting the way the book is.

It's just that easy!


Castro's presentation of HTML 4 was all I needed to secure accurate proficiency in web site creation. What I appreciated most about the book was the absense of ancient history, and increased insight towards current web standards and the near future of HTML. Great for people new to HTML and for a reference guide used by pro's, HTML for the World Wide Web is deserving of what it has been acclaimed as so far: the best guide to HTML

An excellent guide for the beginner!


This book is an excellent guide for the beginner. I was able to build my own web site from scratch and use styles, frames, and tables in the design. Everything is explained well and there is a picture of what the code looks like and the results of it. Both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are shown in the examples and the differences between them pointed out in detail. Well worth the investment.

Good For Beginners


This book is geared more towards the "For Dummies" crowd. It presents the basics and has an example for almost every concept it covers. It is also very cheap.
This is a good book if you are new to XML or need to learn a few basic concepts to keep up in the work environment, lingo mostly. If you want to create and support XML production level code then this book isn't for you.
