Alright, it's not my book in the sense that I'm not the author, but rather the technical editor, but still: the name Zoe Gillenwater is in print, sitting in a Barnes and Noble, and that's pretty cool. The book is Mastering Integrated HTML and CSS by Virginia DeBolt. It's aimed at people without experience in either HTML or CSS, and I really like the approach Virginia and the publisher took of teaching both languages at once. I'm one of those people who learned HTML and CSS completely separately, and I had to suffer through unlearning a lot of HTML when I made the switch to CSS-based layouts. This book avoids that problem by teaching you CSS-based layouts from the get go, building upon a solid foundation of semantic XHTML.
If you do end up learning HTML and CSS through this book, I'll be very interested in learning how you liked the integrated teaching approach for the two languages. Contact me or Virginia and let us know!
