    When I was younger, I used to build my own websites... however, that was when HTML4 was the standard.

    I'm looking to get into web design as a possible profession. I plan on learning XHTML and CSS as a base, and possibly moving into other directions such as Ajax and PHP for interactive web apps. This is what I gathered would be the best path after reading around here and there.

    Are there any books I can read to build a good foundation of web programming languages and general knowledge that is good to work off of? Is starting with XHTML/CSS the way to go? Any tips would be appreciated!

    I strongly suggest PHP+MySQL for dynamic sites when you get to it. You don't really need a book for HTML or CSS, only because it's open source stuff that you can get from any web page. You can easily search online for stuff. If you want any eBooks, let me know, I think I have about 3000 (web development, web design, software development, etc).
