I highly reccomend http://www.csszengarden.com for understanding the power
and beauty of CSS. When you markup ONLY for structure and content, not for
style, it becomes second nature to envision all colors, fonts, background
images, link styles, menus, etc. as belonging to the stylesheet not the
HTML.

I did http://www.sumerianbabyl.com like this and it was FUN!

Sorry if you know this already.
