    I've just spent a weekend trying to teach a friend of mine about HTML! Right: all you need to remember is what tags and attributes are. This is a tag:

    <tag>
    </tag>

    Tags may have attributes:

    <tag attribute="value">
    </tag>

    Tags may contain text:

    <tag attribute="value">
    Some text.
    </tag>

    Tags may contain other tags:

    <tag attribute="value">
    <subtag>
    </subtag>
    </tag>

    That's it. That's the whole of HTML that you actually need to remember. For the rest, just keep a copy of the HTML Specification open in a browser window to refer to and copy example bits of code from.

    Here's some resources I used whilst learning.

    HTML

    HTML: An Interactive Tutorial: www.davesite.com/*webstation/html/

    Introduction to HTML: Dave Raggett's Introduction to HTML

    What Beautiful HTML Code Looks like: What Beautiful HTML Code Looks Like

    Handy list of HTML codes for characters like the copyright symbol etc: &#x2318;C &#x2318;V Character

    XHTML Overview: http://webmonkey.wired.com/*webmonke...0/index2a.html

    CSS

    CSS from the ground Up: www.wpdfd.com/issues/*70/css_from_the_ground_up

    70 Expert Ideas for CSS coding: 70 Expert Ideas For Better CSS Coding | CSS | Smashing Magazine

    Learning CSS Positioning: www.barelyfitz.com/screencast/*html-training/css/positioning/

    I'd recommend you just start building some simple sites so you get used to thinking in the right way - learn by doing is best for me. Once you get used to the concepts then I'd also recommend subscribing to some blogs on the subject: look fro Design Float and Smashing Magazine for some useful links.
