This page provides links to some sample images, buttons, and backgrounds on this site, as well as links to external sources for all kinds of web design elements.
Regular Fonts - presented in a table of font names and samples, these are most suited for use on buttons because of their "clean" lines.
Informal Fonts - also in a table, these fonts are useful for headings and for making a greater visual impact.
Buttons - samples of buttons that can be made, in a variety of colors, shapes, and fonts.
Backgrounds - a few of the background images that could be used (with sample pages to see how they look on an actual web page).
Project Cool Sightings - some of the interesting sites found by Project Cool (my own favorites)
Yale Style Manual for the Web - a comprehensive introduction to site design, page design, graphics, animation, and so on, with helpful illustrations from websites.
Mega Web Tools - a smorgasbord of links to gifs, icons, backgrounds, java stuff, counters, forms, etc.
Introduction to HTML 3.2 - an easy, step-by-step introduction to HTML, from tags and attributes to lists, images, tables, and links.
NCSA Beginner's Guide to HTML (at UIUC) - a somewhat less-fancy introduction to HTML than the above, but good as a reference (it's easily-downloadable and is formatted so that you can find topics easily).
Help Desk - divided into categories such as "Nested Lists" and "Sizing Images," this gives the basics on how to deal with typical issues in HTML.
Project Cool's HTML Tag Reference Table - if you've forgotten the syntax for a particular tag, its attributes, or variations, check this handy table (not for beginners - no explanations).
