New to HTML

Posted 03 December 2012 - 06:38 PM

Does anyone know any good books or tutorials on HTML or CSS programming? Even some blogs or other websites would help. I'm specifically looking for something that can give me a basic knowledge of how each language works and how they go with each other. Thanks!

Hey.

Check out this page on Mozilla's dev network. It lists some great HTML tutorials for both beginners and more advanced developers.

Somebody is always sure to suggest w3schools.com when people ask this question (Google, mostly), and they've got some good stuff. But they've been known to make some mistakes, and be lazy about code styles and other basics. Be warned! :)

Real quick, and I apologize, but what is the difference between HTML and XHTML?

XHTML is an offshoot of HTML based on the more strict syntax rules of the XML language. They are two different standards, and aren't really compatible with each other, even though they are in many ways near identical. I suggest you focus on HTML first, as that is (by far) the more used of the two.

As said by Atli HTML is the more used of the two and in fact now that HTML5 is out i am convinced that XHTML will no longer be used in the future. So again: go on with HTML!

Hi there.
I believe my YouTube channel could of use to you. I have created 20 tutorials on HTML and style sheets that will get you from the basics to a full website. Heres the link: http://youtube.com/wafnitutorials. Just click on 'Courses' on the right then go to HTML/CSS.

Hope you find my tutorials useful.

Well, your link above doesn't work as it has a dot at the end.

The correct link is here :)
