HTML, of course. Bookmark - you won't be
able to get through it right away, it's a little dense. Once you get a
feel for how HTML works it'll be less difficult to read. That's the
official reference for HTML 4.01, so you can't do a whole lot better than
that in terms of accurate information.

In terms of a well-designed tutorial, I offer two recommendations. is good but I think some of the concepts aren't
discussed as well as they ought to be. is good if
you overlook the emphasis on XHTML, which I feel is not worth getting into
at the beginner level, and not at this time at all unless you're in a
rather unique situation where it actually offers benefit. Fortunately,
HTML and XHTML work rather similarly, with only a few differences like
having to write empty elements with a slash at the end. I know of a few
errors in each, but overall they're good. They both stress a semantic
approach to HTML, leaving style to CSS.

Of course, I don't know how your instructor will teach HTML, but there's
the chance (s)he will get some things messed up here and there too. Use
the instructor's content as well as the online references I cited to get a
feel for what's the best way to do a particular thing. Sometimes you might
have to do something "wrong" to satisfy an assignment, sure, but get to
know in your heart what's the best practice.

Do read this newsgroup as well, also comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html
and other ciwa newsgroups, for tips, thoughts and the occasional wacky
side-thread. These newsgroups are populated with individuals, amateurs and
pros, with a variety of experiences and specialized expertise. And so long
as you're not asking for an answer to a homework assignment, feel free to
post questions you may have to the appropriate ng.
