What is the best series of computer programming language books?

I'm starting to study some of the basics CSS / XHTML / Javascript, I'm totally bewildered by the choice of guides. Is there a best in breed series I should stick with or is it best to pick and choose between different ones

O'Reilly is a popular brand standard. Animal illustrations on the jacket covers! I can vouch for a few of the perl books (Intro, and best practices)

As a programming student myself I tend to ask people with specific expertise for reference recommendations. A lot of CSS and XHTML is documented in various online tutorials, eg:
http://www.w3schools.com/xhtml/
http://www.csszengarden.com/

hope that helps

If you want computer programming books, deitel and deitel are very detailed and used by most colleges. Personally, I think the best guides are found online. w3schools is the best online web tutorial for html, javascript and css.

The Java Language Specification, Third Edition is the best for Java. It is written by the people who invented Java. HTML & XHTML The Definitive Guide is the best book for XHTML. CSS: The Missing Manual by David Sawyer McFarland is the best book for CSS. We suggest those three.
