Hi Sigrid,

I'll post this to the list in case it might be of interest to others.

I think that the best compendium of HTML tags is Graham's "The HTML
Sourcebook" (Wiley). He fully explains each tag, does an in-depth treatment
of how different tags can be used in combination and makes liberal use of
code and screen-capture examples. He also includes a good treatment of URLs,
the HTTP protocol, platform-specific topics and both server- and client-side
CGI scripting (but it's not a CGI coding manual).

If the template/cut-and-paste method of Web page design interests you,
there's probably no better text than Horton's "The Web Page Design Cookbook"
(also by Wiley).

Good luck. It's a fascinating world.
