HTML & CSS: The Good Parts
By Ben Henick
HTML and CSS are the workhorses of web design, but using them together to build consistent, reliable web pages is difficult if you're relying on outdated, confusing, and unnecessary HTML hacks and workarounds. With this practical book, you'll learn how to work with these tools far more effectively than is standard practice for most web developers. You'll learn how to connect the underlying theory and design of HTML and CSS to your everyday work habits.

RESTful Web Services Cookbook
By Subbu Allamaraju
While the REST design philosophy has captured the imagination of web and enterprise developers alike, using this approach to develop web services is no picnic. This cookbook includes more than 100 recipes to help you take advantage of REST, HTTP, and the infrastructure of the Web. You'll learn ways to design RESTful web services for client and server applications that meet performance, scalability, reliability, and security goals, no matter what programming language and development framework you use.
