For Prototype there's always my co-authored book: Prototype and Scriptaculous in Action.

For HTML and CSS, the Head First HTML is popular.

For Javascript you have Head First Javascript as well Head First books are fun reading - as they have lot of practice examples in every chapter/topic.

I still recommend Head First HTML for HTML and CSS, but...

Be aware it was written when XHTML was expected to be the next step after HTML 4.01. (In fact, the book even says, "There's not going to be an HTML 5; the new standard is XHTML 1.0.") So I would just downplay their emphasis on XHTML being "the future."

Yup. The XHTML track went over the cliff-side.

The good thing about HTML5 is that you can write it either using proper XML syntax (quoting all attributes, self-closing empty tags) or in the "sloppy" HTML format.

And the thing I like most about HTML5? The doctype:That's it. No transitional this, or strict that. Just "html". Ahhhhh!
