Looking for book or video Recommendations for learning separately HTML and CSS. Online resources are helpful to learn but IMO some need a starting point. Online resources become understandable once the foundation is understood depending on the person because as we all know CSS has plenty of techniques.

Yes, w3schools.com is very good. Another good site is Alist Apart.

As far as books, I liked "New Perspectives HTML and XHTML 5th Edition comprehensive"

Starts with the basics, has downloadable files to work through, and gets you started using a simple text editor like notepad. It's fairly cheap as well.

As @Andrew Collings posted, w3shools contains a wealth of information, presented in a really easy-to-understand way.

I'd recommend checking out the HTML and separate CSS tutorials on Tizag. Once you've got to grips with those they offer tutorials where you learn to build a simple HTML/CSS site from the ground up.

Good luck :)


I would agree that W3 have a great CSS tutorial. It helped me out when I was creating CSS styles for Windows 7 Sidebar gadgets. Not sure about their HTML tutorial but they seem like a pretty good site.
