I just started my long-way-to-go trip in the field of front-end web development. I have full commitment and desire to be a successful one, and I unusually learn things quick. I need your assistance guiding me through gradual steps to move from being a newbie to an intermediate to an advanced one.I have been reading many articles and blog posts over the web trying to figure out a way for helping me kick off. However, there was no really a good answer or good gradual steps to follow but almost everyone recommended me to firstly start with the HTML & CSS Book by Jon Duckett, and I already bought it and started.I really like that book, I know its for beginners as I feel its too simple. I almost finished the HTML part and then I will go directly into the CSS one. Here comes my question:1- Where will this book takes me so far? Will I be able to make good-looking static websites (from scratch) after I completely grasp it?2- What is the next step? What should I do after I finish that book? What language should I learn? Javascript? if so, what are good sources to start Javascript with and then advance?3- Is that HTML/CSS book enough for knowledge about HTML? Or are there any more HTML books/guides that can take me towards more HTML work and knowledge? If there are more books on HTML in more advanced level, do I really need them?Sorry for the long post but I really need your guidance, I feel completely lost here and in my country, web development is not a main trend so I think I'm a bit alienated over here

It sounds like an up-to-date book. Work through some online tutorials but realize that online tutorials often contain over-simplified code and bad ideas. For little tiny beginner projects keep it all as one file for simplicity and ignore the advice to break it up into multiple files -- you will do that later when you have a larger project. You will always begin with a boilerplate such as...

<!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head><meta charset="utf-8"><title>title</title><style>body{background-color:#888;}h1{color:#f00;}</style></head><body><header><h1>Title</h1></header><div><p>Hello Commandermadi!</p></div><footer>┬ęCopyright 2014</footer></body></html>
