    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a good self-study manual for learning code in Notepad for a beginner?

    Thx,

    Rgds

    What do you mean "learning code in notepad"?

    Do you mean manually editing HTML? If so have you thought of something like this?

    Hi,

    Thx for the response. Yes. Wish to learn how to do this. Appreciate that there are far easier programmes to use but wish to cover all angles.

    Have never bought a 'Dummies' book before (albeit probably appropriately named, in my case). Are they comprehensive?

    Rgds,

    They do exactly what they say on the tin, erm cover. Great books for an introduction to the material if you ask me.

    'Dummies' books are rarely comprehensive; they coudn't be and remain 'dummies'!

    But they *are* a good introduction.

    Once you get the basics on board then it would be time to pick up the O'Reilly books, which *are* fairly comprehensive. But they aren't for beginners.

    Depending on the technologies you wish to learn you may find www.wrox.com a great publisher of books. I love these guys as their books are very comprehensive and listed in an easy to read format. I generally couple them with the o'reilly 'in a nutshell' books which make great dictionaries of methods and their syntax.

    Hi,

    Thx everyone. I'll take a peek at the Dummies to start, as suggested. As I'm doing this from scratch it might be an idea. I've since spotted the O'Reily book: HTML & XHTML The Definitive Guide 6th ed, which sounds interesting so perhaps in due course. I'll also take a look at that link posted - many thx - and see what's cooking.

    Very grateful for all the help.

    Kind rgds
