Some of the sources that I used to learn about HTML are the NCSA Beginner's Guide to HTML, an HTML Overview by Russ Jones, and Composing Good HTML, but the most comprehensive list of information I found was compiled by the Library of Congress, but that page apparently went away. I've also tried to avoid the Top Ten Mistakes in Web Design.
Although I don't have many pretty graphics yet, my pages should load faster. (Don't you hate waiting for pages to load?) As a courtesy to text-based browser users (and those of you with image loading turned off), I give text descriptions of the graphics that I do have. I also don't have separate graphic and text versions of pages, or use commands specific to one brand of browser. That kind of defeats the intent of HTML. I have seen this described as being "Multi-Browser Enhanced." I don't give a rat's ass what browser you use, it's none of my business. Unless they pay me, I'm not going to have a link to download anyone's browser, and maybe not even then. Although I use some newer HTML tags, I try not to use any that will break older browsers. I have viewed my pages with Lynx, Internet Explorer 2.1, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, Netscape 2.0, 3.0, 4.7, and CompuServe Mosaic, and they look acceptable on all of them. I've even tried using the PC-based WebTV Viewer. Due to WebTV's narrow screen and my sometimes wide pages, changing to a smaller font in WebTV (if possible) is advised. I also don't have a bunch of links like "Click (here) for whatever." The idea is to have regular text with some of the words as links.
If I can help it, there will be no metaphors here about information highways, freeways, dirt roads, on-ramps, or cyber-anything. I've been using BBSs for about 15 years, and I had my CompuServe account for 9, and I don't know what CyberSpace is, or where to find The Information Superhighway (r). If you came here looking for that, I'm sorry, but I can't help you.
