So where did I learn basic HTML and CSS? I used the websites below. They are very well organized and straightforward. I used the first one the most. For those of you wondering what CSS is (and maybe HTML), they explain it in the introductions.
I also checked out books from my local library. If you do the same, just make sure to look for books that have been published in the last year or two.
Hope it helps!
