Some VB knowledge required

If you are new to VB, I would recommend buying "Programming in Visual Basic 6.0" by Julia Case Bradley and Anita C. Millspaugh. Francesco's book is written as if you already know some basic stuff about VB. Francesco's book is comprehensive, it's just not for beginners.

Easy for beginners. Lets you develop a good foundation.

I also have the HTML Quick-Start Guide and what I love about these books are their ability to take a seemingly complex and mysterious topic and turn it into something that can be easily learned and made enjoyable. After reading through this book, I gained a better understanding of roll-overs, functions, and scripts just to name a few.
There are chapters devoted to topics like roll-overs (and other fun ways to play with images), working with frames and other browser windows, dynamic HTML, plugins, and cookies. There's also a list of online resources at the book of the book.
Well worth reading, whether you're a novice to JavaScript or not.

Excellent book

I have read some of the reviews written by some not-so-satisfied readers and I do see their point of view. However, this book is intended for solid HTML, and topics such as CSS belong to another book - Dynamic HTML the definitive reference, which is also an excellent book. I have been working with HTML for quite a few years and this book is my life saver.
