"If you understand html/xhtml and have to edit html source code on occasion...this is a great little reference. The descriptions are useful, but short enough so you're not wading through pages of superfluous verbiage."
-- Eric Wuehler, Amazon.com

"The book I've been keeping on my shelf at work for HTML reference is one of those five pound doorstops that covers absolutely everything. The problem is that I have to check the index to find what I need, and I end up using a different book for CSS information. With this pocket guide, I can retire that book, gain more room for other titles, and give my poor shelf a bit of a rest... :)"
-- Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

"...these pocket reference books from O'Reilly are great. They aren't for learning, rather they are what they say they are: a pocket reference. (Nice to see some truth in advertising for a change.) If you buy this book you will use it. A lot. Period."
-- Larry Hannay, Amazon.com

"What a handy dandy little book. At only 97 pages and measuring 7" X 4 1/4" X 1/8", you can conveniently take this code reference everywhere...But seriously, if you code web pages you’ll want a reference listing of all the HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0 elements and attributes. The Pocket Reference provides just this in an alphabetical listing and there’s more. It tells you what’s been depreciated and what has not (but you might think has). Basic terms are defined, usage explained, and examples provided...unless you have been able to memorize the entire HTML 4.01 Recommendation from the W3C, it is a most convenient way to ensure that you are coding elements and attributes in a syntactically correct and compliant manner."

"[Consumers] will find the fine 'pocket references' produced by O'Reilly to be compact and affordable."
-- James Cox, The Computer Shelf: Midwest Book Review
