    books, websites?

    been toying around with code and learning some basics. done some very minor programming on my blog, just basic stuff like clickable icons, images and captions, etc.

    now i want to go deeper and be able to code within the website without flinching.

    There are 2 websites that I recommend you to look at

    This website is as good as a book. Actually, even better because you can try your code out and see the results right away.
    1) w3schools

    This website is a good "tutorial by members" website. They post their own tutorial to this website.
    2) Pixel2Life

    These 2 websites should be enough for you to learn HTML. I suggest you learn PHP and MySQL after HTML :)

    Good luck!

    I am going to add in my two cents and say to learn Javascript and CSS before PHP and MySQL.

    CSS is a good idea. Javascript is quite tricky.

    No it isn't, and it's essential to writing good web apps.

    Learn Javascript before the server side languages like PHP and SQL.

    HTML is easy, you can learn the fundamentals in 20 minutes, after that it's just learning specific things like tables, lists, image etc.

    CSS is the best. I was learning CSS years ago almost without realising it, when I used to have Invisionfree forums for game clans and such, you can edit the CSS used. It was very useful and taught me a lot.
