Well, this response is a little off-topic, but in my opinion a wonderful
place to begin would be the following:

http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/

This page is more about design aesthetics than the nitty-gritty how to's
but it may prevent a person from going overboard once they do learn to use
the programming tools that give you so more control over your Web site's
appearance. It's also one of the funniest sites I've visited in a long time.

One more suggestion: At this time, if you go to the Manpower Technical site
and send them your resume, they'll give you free access to an online CBT
course that teaches you Java. Here's their URL:
