    Hi, if you want to learn HTML we can help. Let me explain a few things about it some standards and HTML.

    Some people code with messy non standardised code and their code does not render properly in all browsers.

    I code with standards, who sets the standards? W3C sets standards for the web. Since your starting out, I would learn XHTML. It's fasing out HTML.

    The site I just linked has really good tutorials. If you have any questions let us know.

    but with XHTML james, he'd need to learn CSS as well to go with it.

    Just pop yourself down to www.w3schools.com

    Anything web based should be there.

    Right, and since HTML is going out, he should learn XHTML along with CSS. Nothing wrong with that.

    I learned basic XHTML first, then I learned CSS. I would get the structure of XHTML down first. Good thing about the site I gave you is once you have your code done, you can validate it and it tells you if it's compliant or not.

    XHTML really isn't all that different than HTML... if you code good HTML, not sloppily, it's really not that different from XHTML...
