Teach me where to fish...

I've had what I think is a decent idea for a website. Rather than asking someone to "punch it up" in their "spare time" I'd like to learn to do it myself. I know a bit about html and took a turbo pascal class 11 years ago. Since then it's been all humanities, social science, and law. What do I need to learn and what, in your experience, are the best books/web sites to learn from?

I know from tons of answers by the able people here (and personal experience) that ideas are basically worthless unless you make them real. I, perhaps naively, want to know how to do that.
Essentially what I'm trying to do is to provide a database and allow visitors to search through that database by categories, dates, (user generated?) tags, names, and (geographic) locations. What do I need to read?
