HTML5and CSS: Develop with Tomorrow’s Standards Today by Brian P Hogan

This book covers the new HTML and CSS features being introduced for HTML5, but it does a lot more than that. For each feature, the author describes the feature in depth with examples, but more importantly the author lists the browsers that currently support the feature, and for those that don’t he also covers how to to simulate the feature, often by suggesting and demonstrating a freely available Javascript library. More importantly, the demo applications are written as progressive enhancement, starting with the basic HTML and adding Javascript in a way that would make the page usable even if the browser has Javascript turned off.

The example are all useful and practical, the explanations are really clear and the emphasis on keeping a good user experience even if Javascript is not available, all make the book a really good read.
