Fast-paced HTML & CSS book?

I'm studying programming in my 2-year education, we study mainly Java, but later we'll cover HTML, CSS, Javascript, some other stuff.

I'm looking for a fast paced book on HTML and CSS. Ideally, I would like it to be around 250-350 pages, but no more than 400. For javascript I intend to order "Javascript - the good parts", which got really good reviews. I already know some HTML, and I have tested a little css. So it doesn't have to be verbose.

I have already googled, but come up with no satisfactory results. There is a book called something like "HTML and CSS the good parts", but I'm doubtful after reading some of its reviews.

Anyone who have read a good book that fit my description?

Thanks,
Mike

Actually, it's amazingly bad! Avoid it if you want to learn how things really work. See http://w3fools.com/.

In the end I ordered "Building Your Website The Right Way Using HTML and CSS" http://www.amazon.com/Build-Your-Website-Right-Using/dp/0987090852

Unfortunately it did not meet size requirements, but I was impressed by the reviews of previous editions so I felt it was worth to invest in.

Thanks Bear for the information.
I had never heard of http://w3fools.com/ until today

I like the try-it-yourself editor in w3schools that helps understand the functionality better. And the website really comes in handy at times.

Thanks,
Komal
