Sybex support offers help with errata in Integrated HTML and CSS: A Smarter, Faster Way to Learn. Just in case you came here first looking for help, I've put together this list of the errata I've found in the book.
Two references to Listing 2.2 on this page should actually be to Listing 2.3. The first reference is just after the Tip near the top of the page. The second reference is in the caption for Figure 2.8.
There is no Chapter 3 material on the CD, so you cannot find
ch3bg_sm.gif to try the exercise. Here is the graphic, simply right-click (Ctrl-click) on it to save it to your Chapter 3 folder.
When I first wrote Chapters 4 and 5, I used meaningless filler text on the HTML pages
headings_finish.html from Chapter 4 and
ch5_start.html from Chapter 5. The editors asked me to replace it with real text, which I did. Those old versions of the pages are what got put on the CD, however. The page structure is the same, regardless, but if you want the actual English text versions, download this zip file.

<a href="fence.html"><img src="images/fence_tn.jpg" alt="Fence" width="75" height="75" /><br />
Note that the link in the finished file,
creek_finish.html, is correct.
In the meta element line in the sidebar should have a forward slash at the end:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
