- http://www.w3schools.com/ -This is quite an obvious one for anyone starting off in anything to do with computer science. They provide easy to follow online tutorials which let you practice every step as you work your way through the site, building up your html confidence as you progress.
- http://thenewboston.org/ - This rivals W3Schools as one of the best online tutorial based computer science sites. Any of my I.T. friends that I asked for recommendations directed me to this site over W3, so if that's anything to go by then it must be good.
- http://www.pagetutor.com/index.html - This site promises 'plain English' guidance in explaining the ins and outs of HTML.
- http://www.html.net/- Another good one for easy to follow, succinct explanations for the novice in the world of computer science.
I hope that this selection of html tutorial site offerings helps anyone who is having trouble with understanding html or further down the line, xml. I know that they have helped me a lot in the last few days, I'm not saying that I am now an expert, but I'm slowly but surely gaining confidence in my own ability to understand what is going on 'under the hood'!
If all else fails, I recommend befriending someone who is studying Computer Science!
