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.

Thanks

http://glish.com/css/

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.w3schools.com/
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)
http://www.mezzoblue.com
http://www.alistapart.com

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.
