    1. Awesome book! First web design book I was able to pick up, read and actually take it all in, without needing to read each chapter over and over. Dan Cederholm writes very down to earth and easy to understand.

    2. Fantastic book. Dan makes web design an easy fun and colorful experience. Examples, tips and ideas are well presented and easy to follow.Simply put, this book is a must have.

    3. The concepts behind "bulletproof" web design remain relevant, but the specific examples haven't aged well. Using code snippets and screenshots, Cedarholm shows how to replace bloated code with lean, semantic, accessible markup. The goal is bulletproof design: thinking ahead and designing for multiple scenarios, and protecting content. The book covers flexible text, fluid layouts, and making content readable without images or CSS. Cedarholm's techniques were fine when the book was published in 20 [...]

    4. Excellent Foundation: I found this to provide an excellent foundation for developing web pages using lean HTML and elegant CSS. It was not overly focused on Web Design or Web Development, but comfortably in the middle. The examples were progressive, practical, and timeless. In addition, the final chapter brought it all together nicely to make a full web page from scratch. This book really is 5 stars! I gave it 4 stars only because I wanted more examples and, as a developer, I would have preferre [...]

    5. This is a well-written, practical book that gives you concrete, hands-on examples for how to write some of the best markup on earth. Highly recommended to any new web designers who are interested in how to better hone their craft.

    6. Really excellent book on making both standards compliant design with CSS, but also building in precautions for careless users.

    7. One of my very first html books. This book helped me code by thinking of flexibility and different scenarios. It was a great starter book.

    8. OK, but seriously out of date: spent a lot of time explaining how to deal with Netscape 4 and IE 5. Also spent more time on the technology, and virtually nothing on actual *design*

    9. Dan Cederholm is an authority for a reason. He knows what he's talking about. Don't even question it. Just buy it already. It will rescue you from countless hours of WTFing.

    10. (X)HTML strutturale e CSS in un approccio pratico ed elegante: dal menu di navigazione al layout della pagina, tecniche intelligenti a prova di Internet Explorer.

    11. Very good book. A bit outdated, but still has a lot of useful information and techniques that can be applied today.
