I have never read any books about html, I learn plenty from newsgroups and
www.w3.org, but it might be a bit hard if you are not used to it. I
know good about O'Reilly though and I heard good about this book:

As for editor, you probably want a simple text-editor, like notepad or
better an editor with syntax-highlighting which will make your html-code
stand out. I come from linux so I can't recommend anything for Windows or

If you use linux or a unix variant you could check out Bluefish:

Hmm, now that I look at bluefish screenshots I see that there are
screenshot from both Windows and Mac so it might even be an option if you
come from those platforms.

Not a book, but a place: http://www.w3schools.com . You can learn
everything from the very basics down to pretty complex programming with
easy to use examples and walk-throughs. The site covers all of the web
core languages (HTML, CSS, JS, ASP, PHP, XML, SQL) so is a good place to
add to your bookmarks. Even now I still use it for reference and I've
been build commercial sites since I was a wee kiddy!
