    Oh, and I removed your near duplicate question from the network board.

    XHTML is the newest standard, but it's based on HTML4. You should be OK learning HTML4, as the difference is not very big.
    Since you already have the book, learn from it and then take a look at some XHTML tutoirals on the net.

    A good reference is w3schools's HTML tutorial. They also have tutorials for CSS, XHTML, XML, JavaScript etc.

    Yes, the newest version of HTML is XHTML, which looks very much like v4 although is based on XML and also SGML I think.

    Wrong, AFAIK. There is no "version 5" HTML. XHTML is not a newer version, but simply a mixing of scipting, such as Javascript and PHP, and markup. You'll do yourself well to learn HTML 4 for the basics and then start learning things like Javascript and the other web scripting languages (VBScript, PHP, CGI, Perl, etc.) that will help you make your webpages more dynamic.

    It isn't a "mix" of scripting. Yes, PHP and Javascript can be used in XHTML (along with HTML for that matter) but they aren't a standard of it.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.
