Came up with an idea – “Learn HTML”, which spawned a plethora of related ideas and projects that ultimately support that outcome.

Desired Outcome: HTML/XHTML 4.x mastered (precursor before tackling HTML 5.x)
Supporting Tools: GTD; Making it all work; Back of Napkin; Head First HTML; Ubuntu Netbook 12.10 LTS; dev site; Seamonkey; Firefox Browser and add-ons; videos; Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet; WordPress; DocuWiki.

As you can see – a basic idea associatively dragged everything into the pit. Fun stuff.

A part of this blog will demonstrate a progressive outcome of various developments during this Project — “HTML/XHTML 4.x mastered”
