Overall, this is a good book, especially for beginners, but one major point of contention. The author states that Tim Berners-Lee created or invented HTML -- incorrect. Berners-Lee, an excellent engineer so I am not be derogatory, just historically accurate, copied a subset of the publicly domained SGML and tweaked it for the Web, calling it HTML. SGML was the publicly domained version of IBM's GML, or General Markup Language. Just as it was Van Jacobsen who was responsible for the HTTP protocol; good to keep history as accurate as possible.
