Books on html php

Hi,

I know the html tags and am pretty familiar with CSS. What I don't know
really is good layout with a combination of these. I don't really know when
to use tables or when to use just css and I would really like to see
examples of well designed web sites and the html for it. I hate "what you
see is what you get editors".┬*┬*┬*Does┬*anybody┬*know┬*of┬*any┬*books ┬*that┬*show
good examples of web page layout?┬*┬*I┬*would┬*also┬*like┬*to┬*see┬*good┬*ex amples
of using tables for page layouts -- (even though I know the css people say
don't do that, i'd still like to know how.)

I'm also planning to use PHP to construct pages so if anybody knows about
any books that cover Web design with php, that would be great too -- and
I'm refering to more of the presentation part.┬*┬*┬*Thanks

Go to Amazon.com and search for PHP in the books section - there are LOADS
of entries.

* snip request for book titles *

Hey Mudge,

I highly recommend buying technical books from www.bookpool.com - they've
always had the best prices for me and I've never had any problems with
them. Shipping is fast and everything is packed well.

I'm assuming you're in the U.S. by the way. I don't know if Bookpool has
warehouses/inventory elsewhere in the world...

Sorry I don't have any specific suggestions for what you are asking about.
I highly recommend checking out Tony's site (http://www.tonymarston.net/)
for a great example of good coding style. The links that Konrad provided
are also very good.

O'Reilly's DHTML Reference is indispensable. Belongs on every web
developer's desk.

If you say it, it must be true. I'll buy it.
