Hi all,

I would like to recommend the above book for anyone who is starting to get to know what HTML, CSS and XHTML are. I am currently in Chapter 4 - A Trip to Webville and find the explainations to be excellent! I am very impressed!

Anyone who is reading the book at the moment?

Hey Jessica,

You should head on over to They have a discussion board for Head First HTML.

Quick query about this title. If you go to any of the Amazon stores (,,, ...) and type in "Head First HTML" in the search field, two different books come up. Practically identical, but with different colour main title (turquoise blue as opposed to dark purply blue). One is considerably more expensive than the other. And, indeed, the ISBNs are different. However, apart from that, the descriptions seem to indicate that the contents of both books are identical. I'm rather confused about this!

Anyone have any idea why the turquoise-titled one is so much more valuable than the other?

Having bought the book upon release I actually own a turquoise blue-titled copy - could it be that I have a hugely sought after rarity?

Thanks for any enlightenment

I agree. Here's the link:
