nice decent list of programming reference books and cookbooks
Hip Pocket Guide to HTML 4.01 (IDG Books). no longer available new. $1.99
if you can still get this, get it! Good for HTML 3 & 4 - shows deprecated tags. Note: this does not fit in a shirt or in a hip pocket! there is also an html 4.0 and an html 3.2 version which will work just as well. the HTML5 standard has changed a lot though, even the "a" anchor tag has a download attribute!
http://www.visibone.com/ laminated charts/reference sheets! $40
mysql, javascript, css, html, special chars, fonts, colors, js regex, language codes, blah blah. wonderful stuff for web developers! I think the thing I use the most is their font family and color chart. If I had a timezone list I might use that as well.
instruction and tips on how to do web design and graphic design without wearying your users. things like, 3 clicks and they are outta here. I know. my site is hard to navigate because of its sheer size.
catalog of web design ideas
this is a good cookbook for CSS. I highly recommend it. everything from breadcrumb menus, horizontal and vertical menus, tab menus, tips tricks, some basics. not a beginner's book.
you are going to run into them when it comes to form field validation! used by HTML5's pattern="" attribute and JQuery also, javascript's String.replace(,) and String.match() and PHP also support regex through preg_match(), preg_replace() functions
SQL: The Complete Reference book, wireless kindle edition $39$
Best SQL cookbook/reference I ever had. 3" think and worth every penny. now in its 3rd ed.
not a complete reference. a complete "pocket" reference would be a fairly thick book, which I hope someone comes out with today.
JavaScript bible, 7th edition by Danny Goodman $36.12
Excellent volume, needed to be a 2-volume set, so it desperately needs the bonus BC chapers in book form (DONE!) rather than just on cdrom (all 1000 pages). really this should be a 2-volume set. you can request a bc volume in paper book form from wiley publishers. enough votes and they may do it for real. companion for BC chapters (sections III and IV) is Javascript Examples bible by Danny Goodman $107
doesn't cover the complete set of elements like I would prefer, just covers the ones that are implemented like most books. this is disappointing to me.
The CSS Pocket Guide $12
covers what is implemented in CSS3 (but not the whole css3 standard, for that see w3c documents). still it is VERY useful and handy and small.
