I've been looking at this book, and liking what I see.
This seems to be the state of the art for a book on the web today. But there are still things I hope for:

C. Aside from the back-forward cache, browsers don't remember a user's location in the book
D. Browsers don't take advantage of all that good link/@rel information
Still, this looks like a great starting point!
