HTML Resource GuideI was told not to buy a book on this subject (or on anything to do with the Net for that matter). Any book on the Internet is out of date before it can get to the publisher. Everything that you need is available on the net. Most of it FREE!
I bought a book anyhow. Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML in a Week by Laura Lemay. Two weeks later, the first posting of this was up. You can order her latest book Teach Yourself Web Publishing With Html 4 in a Week.
I'm not going to try to teach you anything. I am merely going to give you all the sites that you might find useful. (If you don't have a homepage, you can get one for FREE from here.)
