previously mentioned are sponsoring live video-based courses on both HTML5
and CSS3 (and many other web design and development topics) through the
Learnable.com platform. The courses are inexpensive and incorporate video
lectures by the instructor (often a SitePoint author or similar luminary),
along with exercises, discussion forums and interactive Q and A sessions.
Everything is accessible if you miss something along the way; I took the
HTML5 course late last year and still refer to it periodically.
I've always enjoyed the SitePoint books; they're written in a
popular-but-not-condescending style. The classes have been helpful too.
(and yes, Tony, you should have been at Peter Lubbers' talk!)
