Here is the place to start:

http://www.w3schools.com/

If you want to do it right.  Learn the standards, i will sve you a lot of grief down the road.

Don't start out using tools that seperate you from the code.  Start out codeing in Notepad or some other straight text editor, until you understand the code, and then look at using the GUI based tools.

Well if you want to learn flash you really should go to a intro class or buy a book on flash.  You also should learn some basics about HTML coding.

Here is a good tutorial on creating a simple page - and it uses CSS for layout which is the correct way to do things :

Here are some other tutorials that will probably be very useful (and if not at least the main site will be useful such as Dreamweaver FAQ site:

You need basically everything. I doubt you'll run into anything you don't need. ;-) Learn everything you can -- HTML/javascript/php/perl/asp/.net/graphics/design/typography/databases/XML/XSL/Flash/etc.

And when you think you've mastered that, start over, because it will all have changed. ;-)

Well HTML is a subset of XHTML.

I would start out learning just HTML - you can then move on to XHTML if you need to, but taht would be overkill for starting out.

And webwoman is not kidding about constantly starting over every few years - because that is how fast technology changes.  And it is becoming faster every day.

But don't let that scare you.  If you start out with a solid base of HTML (look at the Sticky Sauce tutorail and Mako's tutorial) you will be able to get very far and easily adapt.

XHTML is not a language it is a standard that defines the extension of HTML to support XML documents in the browser.
