    For beginners, my first choice would probably be "Inside Dreamweaver MX" by
    Laura Gutman, Patty Ayers and others.

    I've not read it myself, but "Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual" published
    by O'Reilly has a very good reputation, too.

    A good place for tutorials is [url]www.projectseven.com[/url]. Some are quite advanced,
    but there are many that are suitable for beginners. I'd strongly recommend
    following their tutorials on CSS.

    If you're just beginning in web development, learn to use CSS right from the
    start. Do NOT learn the old habits of using inline <font> tags. You may not
    want to use CSS for all aspects of design at the outset, as there is quite a
    lot to learn, but using <font> tags is time-wasting (each one has to be
    applied individually, whereas CSS can be used to control the look of an
    entire site from a single sheet. Learning CSS takes a bit more effort than
    applying <font> tags, but the time spent will be repaid hundreds of times
    over later.

    A very, very good book for beginners is Dreamweaver MX Complete Course
    written by Joyce J. Evans from Wiley publishing.
