    I was wondering if anyone has bought any good html and css books. I actually have a couple were you follow along and actually make a site but would like some more as I am new to css and find I am having problems with the positioning of boxes.

    I have the head first book which was ok but kind of hard to follow for someone new to css. I now am working on Build your web site the right way and it is a good book also

    I still feel I need to work through some more projects and I really like the books that you actually do something other than read and then you can not remember half of the stuff after you read it. I feel there is no practice like doing.

    So of anyone knows of some really good books where you actually do a site while reading the book I would appreciate the names of the books.

    Head first is the easiest always...

    Anyway go to w3schools.com to learn and do the exercises.

    w3schools.com is awesome

    I have a couple of books that got me started:

    HTML and CSS in 24 hours by Dick Oliver and Michael Morrison (7th edition is what I used, there may be a newer one)
    Idiots Guide to Creating a Website by Paul Mcfedries (Also a good one, little older, but good for basics)

    But since standards are changing you may want to get something a little more up to date, I use the other ones just for reference really.
