    Well, this is a question that I'm curious about. How did you learn HTML and CSS? which site?

    I learned HTML and CSS by going on http://w3schools.com

    It's a really good site and I kept learning from it, although I'm still not 100% good with HTML and CSS.
    So, how did YOU learn?
    help out my forums please.
    From the main Silver Stars site!

    thrown in at deep end. I befriended a web developer who got me into it. I then wanted my own website/ When I was stuck I would goto a forum and seek help. Or resource sites like w3schools.

    Ask an expert, and you probably wont go wrong!

    I wanted a personal web site, and after a few tries with some crappy WYSIWYG I decided to look into how web sites were really made. My mom had some old HTML books, so I looked through those and just started writing my own HTML. From there I moved on to other languages and technologies as the need arose.

    I basically taught myself. I started out with a one page site, all about me! I then moved to geocities and now I have a .com. I would learn by looking at other people's source codes, and then modifying them. Whenever I got stuck, I would always try to seek help with man's best friend, Google.

    Through the tech department head at school I was fortunate, starting at age 10 I was getting out of class just to build web pages, since then I've had classes on it and read many books.

    HTML very incrementally through the years, starting off with WYSIWYG, occasionally with manual editing, slowly getting myself into a deeper understanding of it.

    I eventually got wind of CSS and started poking around stylesheets online, glancing at various resources.

    But easily my most valuable resource, when it comes to CSS and the DOM (which I got into later when learning JavaScript) was http://www.w3.org , the W3C itself. Their Technical Reports, though not necessarily for the light-hearted or non-technical people, make plenty of sense to me, and so I can usually figure out what I need by just a glance at those. Sometimes it takes some tweaking, but I'm the kind of person who likes to tweak anyway.

    If I ever need anything else, I stick to the classic adage, GIYF (Google is your friend, though some people have interpreted it as Google it, you f***). A quick google search with the appropriate terms will usually get me multiple hits on exactly what I'm looking for, and that's the best resource one can ask for.

    I taught myself more or less. I used to use Frontpage Express, then I moved on to selecting code from other people's websites and editing them to see what they did.

    I eventually learnt the basic HTML tags from http://www.ahfb2000.com.

    I eventually learnt CSS from looking at another person's website and taking his Embedded CSS apart to see how it ticked.

    HTML books...?? lol I dont think I understand. I pretty much just looked at the books on HTML and anything that looked like it would be helpful I took. But I only really used one, I dont remember the name but it had nice coloured pages and everything. A very good book that was.
