You can start to read "HTML for dummy's". This is a good book with several hints and techniques.
It doesn's contain the latest informations but you have to start somewhere...
You can also visit the following sites for good links and lot's of information:

Instant HTML : Programmer's Reference
by Steve Wright
Wrox Press 1996
ISBN 1-861000-76-6
Covers the basics (no DHTML) and small enough to fit in a (large) pocket.

New versions of the book on Dynamic HTML (DHTML) have split into 2 versions:Netscape and IE flavours.  I hate this.  Recommend try to get the old one first, you may even get it in a bargain bin because it's an "old" edition.
