Summary: Look elsewhere
Comment: I was looking for a book that would describe the HTML language and more importantly discuss writing CGI programs that interact with HTML. This book was not what I needed.

A simple search of the 16-page index shows the problems. There are no entries for 'cookies' or 'refresh' (as in client-side pull refresh), and the FORM HTML tag has a total of 3 pages referenced (hardly enough room to describe how to write forms). So if you're looking for detailed technical material, this isn't the book for you.

This book is useful as a broad-reaching primer about the internet, newsgroups, VMRL and many other obscure (and outdated) topics. But I think you would still do better elsewhere.

Summary: Not quite the title
Comment: This book on the cover seems to say that it will help you learn more HTML and CGI. It does show you some good code but I think this book is more of a reading book then a reference. In the beginning it tells you everything about the web you can think of. There is a lot of information that I did not know, but this book takes you where you have never been. I would recommend this book to the accomplished HTML person with medium CGI experience.

Summary: Definitely consider a different book...
Comment: For a book that is supposed to be about HTML and CGI, this book spends most of the time talking about everythign BUT HTML and CGI. In fact, if you want to find a discussion of HTML and CGI in this book, you'll have to go lookiing for it.

I think the only reason this book sells is because people confuse this horrible book (HTML & CGI Unleashed) with a good book (HTML, Java, CGI, VRML, SGML Web Publishing Unleashed).
