HTML

Documentation and Articles

W3C's HTML Home Page

Find all sorts of useful links and information on this page, including articles on web design and philosophy by Tim Berners-Lee, such as:
Links and Law
The first article in a series on hyperlinks and other germane subjects by Tim Berners-Lee - here's an index of articles:
Design Issues
Philosophy by Tim Berners-Lee.
WDVL: HTML - The HyperText Markup Language
There are so many HTML Tutorials out there, If I start listing them, I'd never get the rest of this web site done - however, I have generally found the tutorials found on the WDVL (Web Developers Virtual Library) to be generally clearly written, and helpful - I relied on it heavily when creating this site.
"Centripetal Textuality", by P. Aaron Potter from Victorian Studies Volume 41, Number 4. An interesting article on the impact of hypertext in scholarship.
I also recommend Steven Johnsons, Internet Culture, some fascinating Internet history, as well as an in depth exploration of computer interfaces.
WDVL: Parlez Vous HTML ?
An article that answers the question: why validate? - as well as some tips on writing well formed HTML.
WDVL: Nav 101
Yet another WDVL article, this one dealing with the eternal design problem of website navigation.

Implementations

Arachnophilia

A very nice (and free) HTML text editor, written by Paul Lutus, which is user configurable, and has internal browser capability - this site was written on Arachnophilia! Check out Graphtitude as well, a graphing program.
Evrsoft's 1stPage
Comes highly recommended by people who share my hatred for WYSIWYG editors and their schizophrenic code wizards - a bit more complicated interface than Arachnophilia, but with more scripting support, including line number support, CSS, ect. Tidy (see below) is built in. See WDVL's HTML Editor Page for reviews of freeware and commercial packages.

Update: installed a relatively harmless, but extremely annoying virus on my hard drive, JS loop A - if you downloaded this program, check for a file called "7 buttons from hell" in the evrsoft folders, and delete it.

I personally cannot recommend software that contains viruses!!!

Tidy
Tidy is an HTML and XML validation tool, for testing web pages for well formedness, critical to XML. The author, Dave Raggett claims it is able to make sense of HTML created by MS Word! There are also links to other HTML editors on this page, try them out, I'm certainly going to.
Webreference: Dmitris Design Page
Various design tutorials and references.
WDVL: Nav 101
An introduction to the basics of site navigation.

Jasc Webdraw
Nice, inexpensive SVG solution. I've been fairly impressed with Jasc software, the images in my gallery were all done in PaintShop Pro.
Mayura Draw
A bit more primitive, but cheap, and it converts Illustrator 8 files! Well worth $25.00.
