HTML guide

Here is an HTML guide for the basics, which I've had recommended as being superior.

Dave "HTML Slidy" Raggett is sound (how could he not be when he was around for the laying of the foundations?) but perhaps slightly dated (2002) on the browser safe colors topic in his linked guides — especially for those with a cavalier attitude to color management [grin]. Understanding those monitor and browser color issues does lead to the ability to break them safely and elegantly, so still worth reading.

I have found W3 Schools particularly helpful when I have forgotten the exact implementation of an HTML topic:

The "Try it Yourself Editor" is an interactive learning tool that saves much time and drudgery by encouraging users to experiment live with variations to the code.

Bless you, Chuck, and everyone like you.

Thanks, Cyter. I agree, even in the nineties I didn't pay attention to "web safe colors", and today they are history.
