  1. Hi Peter…take a look at the offerings by Westciv ( They have a number of resources there, including downloadable courses (for purchase)that start at a pretty basic level. Their StyleMaster product is also a stellar CSS editor.

    Joe Gillespie ran the great “Web Page Design for Designers” web site for years. Recommended reading for your friend:

    Adapting print skills for the web
    CSS from the ground up

    As for learning between transitional and strict, I suppose all she needs to do is remember the codes that aren’t included in strict as to transitional.
