A few years back I asked the same question.  The book, Sams Teach Yourself HTML and XHTML in 24 Hours, by Dick Oliver, was recommended to me.  It consists of 24 1-hour lessons.  The nice thing about it you can easily find a lesson that addresses a specific task or problem you may have.  My copy is 10 years old, but there are newer versions and variations on Amazon.

Would any of you wonderful fellow librarians out there like to recommend
the best way to learn (self-teach) HTML?  Preferably an inexpensive one?
Is something like Dreamweaver the only way to go?  I am a complete
beginner. Thanks,
