This helped me with HTML but I'm still lost.
There is a Website For Dummies book available. I saw it when I shopped for my Dreamweaver software handbook. If its print you are looking for go to your neighborhood bookstore. I know it helps me to have a manual to refer to. If you invest in Frontpage by the handbook for it instead.
I wish you much success.
I use front page and I have used dream weaver.
