Which book should I start with in regards to starting with either (HTML with CSS and XHTML) or (HTML and CSS)?

Is the 2nd edition HTML and CSS) more relevant than the 1st edition (HTML with XHTML and CSS)?

Is there any point in reading the first edition?

Thanks guys, I'm looking forward to your comments.........it will be much appreciated. :)

The 2nd edition is slightly more relevant, mostly in terms of replacing the XHTML stuff with some of the new HTML5 elements (e.g. section, article, nav).

However, 90% of the first edition is still very relevant! Just ignore the chapter on XHTML.

Hope that helps.
