Hey all:

I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a good intro to XHTML and CSS. I want to get a book that will put me on the right path to 'intelligent' web design. That is, I want to design good sites, not only in appearance but in structure as well.

This is where I learned CSS. It has excellent tutorials, and all the CSS code is posted open-source (it's not done as an include, so you can actually see the CSS on each page). You'll learn a hell of a lot here.

First of all, let me congratulate you on this intelligent decision!

The sites I learned a lot from are:

http://www.w3.org/ (yes, this is somewhat obvious, but it's a really good resource if you read it thoroughly!)
http://www.csszengarden.com (viewing the css and xhtml source and seeing how it adds up was helpful for me)

Not all of these sites use standard design (some use "hacks", for example), but they're all very full of information.

I very strongly recommend Web Standards Solutions by the author of SimpleBits.com.

Wait till dreamweaver supports it in layout mode. why learn more crappy code? that extra few kilobytes and a chance its not going to look right in some browsers won't kill you.
