rb, I would recommend that you get an FTP program and cheap text editor... download your website and start 'playing.'
I think you will learn a lot by jumping in and seeing what your own page looks like, then look at others and keep experimenting off-line to see how everything works.
When you have a question about creating tables or CSS, for example, go to Google and search for it (You'll generally find hundreds - or thousands - of great resources for every question imaginable).
While books can be worthwhile, I think you might find it better to take a dive and learn it from real-world examples first. After you understand the basics, one of the 'books for dummies' series may bring some of the coding nuances into better focus.

I concur with the W3schools website. It's a great way to learn both HTML and CSS.

I learned basic HTML from the htmlgoodies site; it is wonderful for getting started. I then downloaded the HTML and CSS refernces from [htmlhelp.com...] to be able to lookup syntax locally.
