I've been learning XHTML/CSS for about a week now. I've been using W3Schools (http://w3schools.com/) and it's pretty useful.

Hello Ad4m,
Yes, w3shcools.com (http://w3schools.com/) and CodingForums.com (http://www.codingforums.com/index.php), everything you need and not a single book to buy.

Hello Ad4m,

While websites and the Internet can be very useful, I would definitely check into finding a book for coding. Books will go into extensive detail that is necessary for actually coding well.

Your local library is the first place to check. Just check the date of when the book was published, and find the most up to date ones. At my library, most of the books are recent (within a couple of years). The rest of the changes of the programming language can be referenced online.

Purchasing books can definitely be expensive. A lot of programming books start at $50 (US), but there should be a decent amount of books out there you can get at a library or related place.

Typically, I learn something in computers by first searching the web on some information about it. I find useful things online, but to extend my knowledge even further I grab a book (There are some great ebooks (online books) out there, though. Like "Beginning Perl (http://www.perl.org/books/beginning-perl/)").
