Suggestions from Martha Edwards in her talk to the St. Louis Web Developers Group
To begin to write XHTML, I believe it is necessary only to write "well-formed" HTML, making sure everything is properly nested, that all tags are closed, that sort of thing. (Tags with no closing tag are closed with a space and a forward slash, like this: <br /> <img src="" /> <hr /> etc.) The materials on the New York Library Style Guide (http://www.nypl.org/styleguide/xhtml/guidelines.html) should go most of the way.

There is a great CSS guidebook you can download from http://www.westciv.com. It costs $19.99 but it's electronic, searchable and very complete.

And, of course, I'd read everything on A List Apart. Here's a link to all the articles: http://www.alistapart.com/stories/. I particularly recommend http://www.alistapart.com/stories/journey/.

EDUCOM PUBLISHES STANDARDS FOR DIGITAL LABELS: Educom has devised a set of digital labels, called metatags, that can be embedded in educational documents, making it easier for search engines to find them on the Web. The metatag specifications are posted on the Instructional Management Systems Web site http://www.imsproject.org, and documents containing metatags will provide information about the page's contents, its title and publisher, and when it became available online, among other things. The tags could also include information such as whether a license is required to use a particular software program. The introduction of metatags will enable computer companies to build educational software around a common labeling standard. (Chronicle of Higher Education 10 Apr 98)
