Start with:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <title>YOUR PAGE TITLE HERE</title>
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="description" content="">
    <meta name="keywords" content="">
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>MAIN HEADING HERE</h1>
    <p>
      <!-- PARAGRAPH HERE -->
    </p>

Read about HTML and CSS at http://www.w3.org.

Read the tutorials at http://htmldog.com (use HTML not XHTML).

Always validate your pages at http://validator.w3.org.

After you're familiar with CSS and HTML, I would suggest you move into XHTML. I find the semantics to be cleaner. HTML and XHTML are pretty much the same except they enforce HTML rules more strictly.

I'd start with web development tools such as adobe dreamweaver or eclipse. I started with just developing a simple myspace page to my likings. Adjust background, quizzes, widgets, etc.

Of course you could just try to code directly from a text editor with the bare bottom basics instead of learn as you go. I recommend a learn as you go approach rather than trying to memorize a bunch of different concepts and then code from scratch.

Note that w3schools has nothing to do with the W3 Consortium, and much of its information is inaccurate.

XHTML cannot be served as XHTML because the most-used browser wouldn't know what to do with it. IE will offer to download the file is it is served as XHTML.

If it is not served as XHTML, then all browsers will treat it as badly formed HTML, possible going into quirks mode as a result.

There is currently no point in using XHTML.
