The HTML Writers Guild offers online classes
for members and non-members.


A first stop for newcomers and a helpful refresher for old-timers is Netiquette Home Page "the do's and don'ts of online communication."

The links below are suggestions to further resources on the Internet that can be of help to both novice and advanced HTML scribes. They do, however, reflect the evolving nature of HTML. Although I have found something or someone to recommend each site included here, and, in general, they support The Scriptorium's goal of design for universal accessibility and platform independence, one is likely to encounter contradictions, mistakes, product-prejudice, and personal opinion. Proceed with caution using an OSB mousepad and the brains God gave you to Evaluate Web Resources.
