Subject Re: [users@httpd] html tutorial

My recommendation is to start with, after you are comfortable 
with HTML/XHTML buy the latest version of Mastering HTML, Premium 
Edition, by Ray & Ray, published by Sybex.  This will become your 
reference book for HTML.

You will begin to code by hand in a test editor like MS NotePad for the 
beginning lessons, as the course becomes more complex you will want an 
editor that will intuitively assist you with the code (still done by 
hand), a good code text editor is TextPad, but an even better tool is 
CSE HTML Validator.  CSE will highlight code elements like TextPad, but 
it also has extensive coding shortcuts, and will validate your code as 
you create the code.

After you have learned the more advanced coding for different elements 
to a web page you can advance to a WYSIWYG editor where you see the page 
develop as you create the code,  Mozilla 1.6 - 1.7 is a very good editor 
for this purpose, and it allows you to use your favorite text editor for 
functions not available in Mozilla Composer, as well as validate your code.
