On the previous thread, I already offered to do an outline, and I'm working on it right now (would be finished, but the tractor shed's roof was leaking; had to help teh dad shingle it- we ran out of shingles. :p). Once the outline is done, people can write up certain sections, and then people can edit them. Also, once we're done, we could probably put it up on Webdev faqs, so we needn't worry about design or hosting. Also, don't worry about structuring it until we're done.
I thought about that. I don't know, it's just that I haven't seen any work on it in... well, actually, I don't recall ever seeing work on it. But it's just been static. I know that Ryan, Khalid, and Dave are busy. I was planning to see this as being more of a site with articles and guides on development. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't webdevfaqs.com geared towards answering common web development questions? The idea here is to guide begginners into the art of making websites, and perhaps even expand it to include guides for experienced developers to enhance their sites and change over towards CSS and more accessible websites.
For this here guide, should not we start with the basics of how a website is made? Many beginners when starting out, are just figuring out how a website works. Maybe a nice, brief, not to technical explanation of a website's different components and how they fit together? And then you could start in with some basic HTML. And then some basic CSS for styling it. And then you could keep going with a bit more HTML, and a bit more CSS for styling. That way, while learning, people can see results and make it while not using presentational markup.
