    Getting Into HTML and have a question

    I pulled down a website that my buddy made (with his permission of course) onto my local machine using QuadSucker and was wondering what the next step to start playing around and looking into how to edit and change files? Are there any really good tutorials you guys recommend that I should look at or anything ?

    Good places to start.

    Books by Dan Cederholm are rather good for explaining the basics of HTML/CSS and why you would use one thing over another.

    Mark sure to validate your code

    Also, use a decent IDE as it will help you in the long run. If you need help setting it up, let me know. I use the PHP version.

    If you want to run a web server on your PC, XAMPP is one of the tools that will let you do that.

    Also, don't use tables unless you are doing so for tabular data.

    I'd also suggest using Aptana as an editor - it does helpful things like add </p> after you type <p> for example - so it leads to making less typos. It also makes suggestions for what you might be trying to type and has HTML templates. Very useful editor, and completely free :0)

    Start with http://www.w3schools.com/html. Go through the basic and advanced tutorials links on the left side. After that, go to http://www.w3schools.com/css. Learn CSS. After that, then you should try to edit your buddy's HTML. It's looks like a lot to learn, but it's not difficult. Just familiarize yourself with the tutorials, and it will pay off big time when trying to pick apart your buddy's stuff. It will be well worth it.
