I always use the specs.

for HTML.

It's not a how-to but with basic how-to knowledge already they work
for me.  If you use the validator then the specs are the perfect

(If I understood your question correctly?)

Some people think the specs are hard to read.  But it just takes
getting familiar with W3C-englisch.

I used to print them out and read them at my leisure or while eating soup.
Stick them in a 3 ring binder or download to disk.

Knowing how to code HTML 4.01 correctly makes it lot easier to write
XHTML if you need to.  It also helps for trouble-shooting CSS.
