I have a bunch of books at home on learning HTML, but have access to www.lynda.com so I’m giving that a whirl.
On Windows, advised text editor is notepad++. On a Mac, it would be bbEdit (not free) or TextWrangler (Free)
Stay tuned to my various HTML/XHTML lessons, which I’ll post someplace online.
Just went through the first lesson — guy talks fast, but it’s making sense so far.
