RipVanWinkleFilter: Way back in '98, I learned very basic HTML. I wrote some code, made graphics in Photoshop, saved it all in Simpletext, got a domain, and had myself a website. And, err ... six years later I'm basically using the same method. Help me upgrade my skillz? (mi) [more inside]

I'm in the process of starting my own weblog (it launched on Thursday). I can write pretty decent basic HTML by hand (in notepad), but CSS wrestled me to the ground and stepped on my head and a lot of tech jargon passes me right by (I'm a designer and a writer, not a programer, I guess).
