Which web design book to buy?

It was my birthday the other day and I got some gift cards for a leading Canadian bookstore as presents. I’ve decided to buy one or many of the following, but I really need help deciding on a web design book.

I’m looking for a book on Web Standards and CSS. While I’m not yet a master at CSS, I do have a basic idea of how it works. Now I’d like to learn a little more, some tips and tricks and get more familiar with it all. I don’t want a book that’s too easy — I think I learned all the easy stuff with online tutorials. I want one that will help me now, and perhaps be a reference in the future.

Any suggestions?

  1. Jeffrey’s book is a great introduction to the benefits of web standards, Ian’s book is an excellent guide to XHTML/CSS for the complete beginner, and my book is perfect for people who have been using CSS for a year or so. If you fall somewhere in between these extremes (i.e. neither a complete beginner or somebody with a years+ experience) you could try Web Standards Solutions by Dan Cederholm, which is also an excellent book.
