    Two fantastic new resources which have just been launched are the Sitepoint HTML Reference and the Opera Web Standards Curriculum.

    Both are very up to date and you can be sure that the techniques demonstrated are the latest and greatest.

    Sitepoint also have the Sitepoint CSS Reference for when you are ready to start adding some style and are working on a JavaScript reference.

    The Opera Web Standards Curriculum also covers CSS with JavaScript to follow, but as well as that there are articles on accesibility, information architecture and various other aspects of web design and development.

    Highly recommended.

    @Dainis Yes, yes, videos are perfect. But I prefer to read the blogs and to try to do specific areas of sites that I like, that I think be useful.

    In portuguese is very difficult to find videos tutorials, but we have many good blogs.

    Better solution? wow, I Think that is time to practice and to test ideas found in blogs. Same being very simple, it is necessary to create own variations so that it is easy to implement in the work, when necessary.

    Which site of videos tutorials do you know?

  13. says

    @Kroska actually I learn the best from video tutorials – it’s like one by one with teacher, who can repeat You unclear states as much times as You want. I cannot imagine some better solution. What’s Your opinion?

  14. says

    2, 5, and 11 were the sites that I had learned from in the very beginning when I learned and picked up HTML. Gotta give them the credit for helping me becoming a much better developer and freelancer. :)

    HtmlDog and w3school collects everything that need the beginners, that when we spoke about markup.

    But they really need put yours hand to work, to create several examples to associate to future needs.
