I have an acquaintance who has been making some changes to her web site 
recently - changes for the (much, much) worse. Basically, she's using 
Word to layout the site, then saving it as HTML. The site looks 
horrible, doesn't even come close to validating, etc, etc. I'm not so 
invested in the problem that I would offer to redesign the site for her, 
but I would like to point her in the direction of some good online 
resources to help her improve her site.

I'm going to point her to the HTML and CSS tutorials at www.htmldog.com, 
cause I think they look pretty good. Now what I really need are some 
basic articles/tutorials on good web design and usability. Everything I 
have bookmarked is for a more advanced developer - any suggestions for 
something basic, and "short, sweet, and to-the-point"?
