    In need of GOOD tutorials

    I currently have two friends that are learning HTML. Although I have a very good knowledge of HTML myself I don't have the time to teach them one on one and the sites that they were using to learn from taught depreciated markup. Can someone please post a site that covers correct html in accordance with the w3c standards, yet is easy to understand and wouldn't scare a beginner off. TIA

    www.w3schools.com

    W3C standards. The site is even valid Xhtml.

    I've learned the very first steps with
    http://www.htmlbasix.com/htmlbasics.shtml

    It's easy to understand (even for non native English speakers) and apply and the guy who wrote should write some funny books for the humanity !

    You get to make a web page with all basic html tags within a few hours!

    I second Mhtml with his reference to http://www.w3schools.com . It is a great site, and very easy to navigate. Plus, if you like the way they present their tutorials then you may enjoy their CSS and other tutorials as well. It's also quite useful as a quick reference type of site.

    Yikes, forums are almost too much fun.

    The tutorial on AOL actually very good - it takes you step by step from the very beginning assuming you know NOTHING. I used it to learn HTML when I didn't know the diff between a browser & a server.
    also good is learn HTML in 3 hours, at http://www.netschool.edu/htmlcourse/L1.html

    Yeah I'll score for both those suggestions - w3schools has excellent tutorials, but "lissa explains it all" is very friendly, and particularly written for younger people.

    As a start of a tutorial, try http://XFox_Prower.tripod.com/html
    (and please give me some rating or constructive criticism, no one ever bothers).

    webmasterbase.com is great, it covers lots and lots of stuff. Kevin Yank, their main author is really great, IMO, keep an eye out for his stuff..
