I also want to learn html/xhtml. I do marketing e-mails for work and I'd love to not have to use the templates-some of which are very outdated looking. I have a "For Dummies" book and a few books my step-dad gave me from his classes (he teaches about computers, etc). I'm also hoping that I'll be good enough at this stuff to do it on the side so I can quit job #2.
I just need to stop knitting and watching so much Grey's Anatomy and get on it. My problem is that when I tell myself not to do something, then that thing is all I want to do.
Fingers crossed I can get over that sooner rather than later.
