Use google or get frontpage or dreamweaver to generate for u and learn.

There's nothing to learn in html except for some few codes...

I would strongly suggest that you learn HTML code by hand (like in notepad) before using a program like Frontpage or Dreamweaver. By learning the code beforehand, you will be a more proficient designer in a program like those.

However I'm a hardcore hand-coding junkie. I can't stand Dreamweaver.

W3 Schools.com -comprehensive learning
CSS Play.co.uk -Fancy stuff that's easy on the browser

CssPlay is really a creatively way of using css to change the look of a webpage. I really recommend it for advance Html learning.

The phrase "Advanced html" is an oxymoron.

I would also say that experience is an invaluable tool when learning HTML. Look at some code, play with it, and learn from what you do with it. The more you use it, the easier it becomes and the more familiar it becomes.

Indubitably veritable indeed. I've recently been (attempting to) help people with JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. It has astonished me how I can cook up an example off the top of my head so quickly and accurately (not to show off or anything). It helps a lot to learn as thoroughly as you can so that you don;t have to constantly turn to reference books / sites.

From scratch... Try www.htmlgoodies.com ..lots of tutorials and examples.

There are lots of cheap and thorough (sp?) HTML books out there, keep your eyes pealed.

Good insight, I'm a beginner too. I'm just about done with my crude "website" but what I'd like is a counter that tabulates how times my pages have been visited. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

To code a counter you will need a scripting language for this and that will be a little more involved than basic HTML and CSS.

I tought myself using Ron's Guide (http://ronsguide.com). It seems to have died down a lot recently, but there's still a bunch of good content.

Spoono has some pretty good stuff, too.

No problem if I can ever be of help let me know.

teaching yourself HTML isn't really that hard. At webmonkey.com they have a HTML cheat sheet and that's pretty much all you need. As long as you keep the majority of your content after the " < - body - > " tag you'll be fine. Not alot of code goes before your " < - body - > " tag anyways

Learning from a cheat sheet might make it a little tedious. W3schools has actual step by step lessons that take you through all the tags you'll ever use. It's displayed in a fashion that is easy to read, memorize, and they even have forms to try it yourself on their website.

W3schools is cool.
