[html+css] Good book for web design

I'm looking for a good book that'll teach me some basic html and css web design. I'm coming at it with a desire to learn more of the design end of things, making pretty web pages, instead of just the technical nuts and bolts. I have some html experience and a very passing knowledge of css, plus I know a little java, so I'm not totaly new to this all. Still it'd have to be pretty basic.

Any suggetions?

just start designing, work out how you want your site to look first in a graphic layout programme (photoshop) then use tutorials of the web such as webmonkey and alistapart to start putting it together, I bought a teach yourself html book whenI started but most of whatI've learned I've got from using google to source tutorials online

Like others have said, web design tutorials are prolific on the web. But personally, I work a lot better with a bound book in front of me. Coming from a slight code-oriented background and having just recently focused on learning HTML, "Web Design in a Nutshell" from O'Reilly Press worked really well for me as a place to start. It explains things very well while making the assumption that you're willing to get your hands dirty with the code.

From there I branched out into O'Reilly's "Cascading Style Sheet Cookbook" and "JavaScript & DHTML Cookbook" which are more about providing "recipes" to solve coding problems, but each recipe comes with an in-depth discussion which I found to be very revealing. A kind of learn-by-example type of thing.

Right now I'm working with PHP and MySQL with plenty promising results. For this I am using Wiley Publishing's "PHP5 and MySQL Bible." And while their coverage of basic PHP is on par with the O'Reilly books (that is to say excellent), I've found their coverage of MySQL to be somewhat lacking and the more advanced PHP topics to be rushed. For my current project, I've had to rely a bit more on online tutorials.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I too work better from a bound book, just my learning style. I'll look up those suggestions.

I learnt all I know from, mostly, one site. www.w3schools.com. No affiliation - it's just a really good site. With it, I doubt you'll need a book.
