    If you are looking for good books, Amazon has a lot of good books. If you are needing html, you could most likely google it and bring up some good tutorials.

    Remember, Google is your Friend.

    all depends upon what your priorities are and the intend of your programming.

    Web design would be a good starting point as you can 'see' the results of your
    work quickly and there's tons of tutorials on:
    1. HTML: the browser page layout language
    2. CSS: the presentation details such as fonts, colors, alignments, and even placement on the page
    3. --------------
    4. CGI: the webserver programming necessary to process forms data
    5. Javascript: client-side (ie browser) programming-- best used for data validation, not presentation stuff
    6. Java: a means to run Applets within the browser
    the items above the line can be performed directly on your PC, but those
    below will need a Webserver to be installed (See Apache2 for i386)

    If this is just all too much, then programming is not for you :)

    Most community colleges offer courses on these things. Although, if you're looking to do this for a career, that's a little different.

    Actually Community Colleges are a good place to start, you can get your feet wet and not spend a lot of money. Some also offer 2 year associate degrees in programming, which can get you in the door at some companies.

    Heck, the VB programmer that works on my application never had any official programming classes, he just pickd it up as he went.

    While true, in some areas a associate's degree is not enough. Doesn't account for much more than a high school diploma.
