These are web standards and whatever else is useful that goes along with it.
browser-specific CSS prefixes
standards and references
w3c document - how to properly make an HTML5/XHTML5 DOCTYPE (hint: adobe might have it wrong as of feb 2013)
the tabular data section is stellar.
w3c document - w3c mobile web stuff
mobile-oriented web pages are KEY now. there is XHTML, HTML5, and CSS made just for mobile. WAP/WML has been replaced (and by the way, those cell phones are probably dead by now - my nokia 6310 died after 6 years of use in 2010).
w3c document - html 4.01, 3.02, 5, whatwg working group's HTML5, all w3c's HTML-related documents, html5 logos and stickers
this is the living standard called HTML (formerly called HTML5). the element definitions also seem to include XHTML.

If you also want something that is good for browsers and useful for people using JQuery/YUI, then get Danny Goodman's Javascipt bible 7th ed. - unfortunately, that book has a number of its chapers stuffed on the CDROM. I wanted it in the book so I could find it (why do you think I bought the book? otherwise I would have bought a pdf...). order a paper copy and get out a highlighter pen. the version where the const and maybe class keyword is coming (yay!) is in the next major version. not all the JS API's are implemented yet as of 4/2012. for instance,system information:network doesn't work.
QR Code: ISO/IEC 18004:2006 standard CHF 210.00 (money), ChartTool - QR codes smartphone barcodes, Google QR Code Generator API smartphone barcode, QR Code Playground- Google Chart Tools: Image Charts - Google Code, QR code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, reputable QR Code generator smartphone barcode generator, QR Code smartphone barcode
google has a good QR Code generator. there are a lot of disreputable QR Code generators that redirect. These are supposed to be the few good ones. and apparently, a lot of people with cell phones don't know how to even use these, so it's a royal waste of time.
as in what to put before normal css stuff for the browser-specific transitional handling. example: -moz-border-radius, -o-border-radius, -khtml-border-radius, -webkit-border-radius, -ms-border-radius, etc. this has the longest list I have ever seen and makes a great reference!
w3c document - HTML5 and CSS
microsoft document - vbscript for those who want to develop in it (only for IE and asp.net)
list of w3c void elements
void elements are singletons, elements with no close tag
IANA character sets (such as UTF-8) referenced by W3C standards documents
these character sets are not case sensitive. this is what you put in
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
w3c protocols, RFC 2616 secion 14, headers
I think this also defines what goes in the meta tags maybe, but it definitely defines what goes in the header.it defines things like Cache-Control, Location for redirectiong pages and such.
conditional comments, DX filters removed from IE 10, among other things for HTML5 support, referring stackoverflow article on subject, html5 parsing in IE10 blog on IE blog
a meta tag has been introduced which provides backward compatibility. IE10 does not at all like conditional comments. see this article.
XML Document Access via JS
defines URLs and how they work.
useful for gaming, etc.
this standard tells XML structure how to be verified. it's optional. you use it with something like
<mainelement xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xs:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://JesusnJim.com/menu7.xsd">and then your schema tags need to go into a .xsd file and your tags need to begin with
/xs:it's an all or nothing deal, the XML will work or it won't. I suggest O'Reilly's XML Schema book, and the
things like -webkit-, -o-, -xv-, -wap-, -atsc-, mso-, etc. this is a really comprehensive list!
this is a takes-up-no-space method of highlighting something like a button or input box.
pointer is the one used for hovering over links. you would think it would be hand, but it's not.
w3c css transforms (rotate, scale)
