I found this book very helpful and Mark Myers' approach very effective. For years as a professional software developer I have used HTML and CSS. I did learn a long ago version of HTML from the ground up, but since then, I haven't studied the newer versions in detail, just used the features without really exploring all their details. And I was pretty unfamiliar with a lot of the new HTML5 tags. This book showed me the light on most of those new features.
CSS I had never studied from the ground up. I just used it as best I could from seeing how it was used in other code. This book gave me a firm foundation with a good understanding of the whys and wherefores. I have come to see that CSS is elegant, concise, and effective, and have really come to like it.
But beside all the knowledge I gained from this book, I also enjoyed Mark Myers' approach of short lessons followed by online exercises. Not only do the exercises make learning fun, they reinforce the material right away so it sinks in deeper.
After going though every chapter of this book, and enjoying myself while doing it, I at last feel solid on both HTML5 and CSS3.
