These days, the sentiment of anyone who doesn't know how to code being destined to a life of homeless ineptitude has become a fairly common (if mildly exaggerated) one. But of all the ways out there to save yourself from a derelict fate, Jon Duckett's HTML and CSS: Design and Buil Websites, is, perhaps, the most beautiful, information-packed intro to basic web languages you can find.
Sometimes a browser needs to leave a little data on your computer, just a little 5-10KB nibblit, a cookie.

The ePub ebook standard has always been built on top of HTML. As has MOBI. But now, Amazon is taking it one step further with their Kindle Format 8 standard, supporting HTML5-based formatting options. Future Kindle Fire owners, be happy.
Proving that sometimes the best games are the simplest, the boules-like game Olo works in the browser for iPad and iPhone thanks to CSS3 and HTML5, but Android users can also download it here.
