XHTML is a W3 Consortium standard that is the next stage of evolution after HTML 4. XHTML added the strictness of the syntax rules of XML making it easier to be parsed without ambiguity.

The mandatory XML compliance turned XHTML into a format that is easier to parse by other computer programs besides the usual browsers. This effectively opens a new world of applications and new media output types for HTML documents other than the traditional Web browsers.

"Beginning XHTML" is a book that introduces this new stage of the evolution of HTML teaching all the new concepts and consequences that are important to understand regarding this step of making HTML XML-compliant.

This book is basically about HTML but it is certainly way more than the W3 Consortium XHTML reference manual. Here the authors present clearly this markup language with many practical examples and at the same time they illustrate the syntax differences that are needed to make HTML documents XML compliant.

Besides the expected chapters on XML related concepts, the book also covers more advanced aspects of Web design like style sheets, client side programming with Javascript, Document Object Model (DOM), etc..

Overall this is a very good book recommended to those that are looking for an upto date HTML manual.
