Randy,

For starters, you might want to take a look at HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS, Fifth Edition by Elizabeth Castro and the newer HTML, XHTML, and CSS, Sixth Edition (Visual Quickstart Guide) by the same author. Although I don't own these particular two titles myself, I've always found the Visual QuickStart series to be pretty good.

My own Web development bookshelf leans more toward CSS and Web standards these days. FWIW you can see my book list at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rborup. To narrow it down to books on web design and related technologies, enter 'web design' in the search field, select 'Tags' from the drop-down list, and click Search. You'll notice a couple of Visual QuickStart titles on that list. Also Zeldman's book it pretty much required reading in this field.

As for Web links, here are a few that might be helpful for getting started. I would certainly encourage you to go spelunking on your own for other resources. There's almost no limit to what you can find on this topic.

"Web Page Design for Designers Web Design Archive"
http://www.wpdfd.com/

"HTMLSource"
http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/

"The ALA Primer: A Guide for New Readers" - http://www.alistapart.com/articles/ALAprimer
Lots of articles here, but this page is a good starting point.

"Adobe (Macromedia) Developer Center"
http://www.adobe.com/devnet/
I know you're not using DreamWeaver, but there are some good resources here under 'Technology Centers'.

"HTML & XHTML Tutorials"
http://www.sitepoint.com/subcat/html

"Rock Solid CSS Layouts"
http://www.sitepoint.com/article/rock-solid-css-layouts
