The best way to learn HTML is by example, and your browser is your best teacher! Whenever you are surfing and see something you like, click on your browser's choice to View Source. If you are looking at a long complicated page with a lot of columns, etc... it can be rather hard to decypher. This section shows you popular HTML tricks as stand-alone examples. Just copy and paste the source code into your HTML file, and then modify it to meet your needs.

Never be bashful about using other people's techniques! You will find your own style eventually.

NOTE: If you are looking for a particular solution to a problem, be sure to look around under each heading. Very often the solution to your problem is not what you would expect it be.
