Since about March this year, I’ve been searching for a few good, clear books to recommend to journalists and students who are interested in learning to use jQuery — with an eye toward getting ready for HTML5.
Please note, these books assume that the reader has at least a basic knowledge of how HTML and CSS work to make Web pages appear and function as we want them to. See this page for some suggestions on how to get started if you are new to using HTML or CSS.
Also, thanks to a tip from a student, I recently learned that some public libraries offer free access to their patrons to Safari Books Online — and both of these books are available through Safari! So, log in to your local public library’s Web site and look for a link to “downloadable media” or something similar.
