Back when I started writing HTML, in 1994, good books on it were few and far
between (plus I didn't really even consider that), and online guides were
pathetic, while the standards were what I looked at, but it seemed I would be
lucky if 3/4 of it worked in browsers. That's why web standards are so
important to me. Its also why I was lucky to learn how to read the standards
from the very beginning. That isn't to say they are easy to learn the structure
of, but its not impossible, and most people I feel get intimidated so much that
they don't even bother.
