Default is it ok to read the book now, or it's too old ??

hello

I'm very much interested in web design

and I found this book ,, as a very good resource to enrich my experience in professional web design

BUT

I fount that this copy is too old (2004)

so ,, honestly ,, what do you advise me to do

is it ok to read such an old copy like this ,, or is there a newer version of this book that would include most of newly developed techniques

i mean i'm afraid to study stuff that are not used any more ,, and had been replaced with newer techniques !!


thanx in advance for your replies

There's a lot of this book that's still good and useful and will form a good foundation. The Core of HTML hasn't changed much in 15 years. CSS is probably the area that has changed the most and once you've learned the basics you'll want to find something newer for.
