    I used to mess around with it 4-5 years ago but since then I've forgot everything. Where would be a good starting point to relearn HTML and all that jazz to make a nice site.

    I am thinking about starting to use Dreamweaver. Are there any other web layout applications I should look into?

    Don't use any applications like Dreamweaver... They'll only slow down the learning process by doing all the work for you, and more often than not they generate extremely sloppy HTML. Just do a google search for "HTML Tutorial" -- There's thousands of them out there. You might want to look into a CSS Tutorial at the same time, since the two basically go hand in hand.

    If all else fails, start here: http://www.w3schools.com/ .

    Dreamweaver is a good code editor, but as nathanb said, don't use the Designer mode that generates code for you.

    don't use dreamweaver, at all. It's a slow bloated piece of shit.

    When I first started I just downloaded every html/xhtml/css/js tutorial from Lynda I could and watched them ... felt like a good starting point to me :o
