Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am currently trying to teach myself htlm. all of the books and videos for it are using windows and I'm not. Is there a notepad for ubuntu 11.10 that I can use to start learning html, and would it work the same as the instruction guides use for windows? If not what are some other books that will teachme how to use html on linux?
Distribution: UBUNTU 5.10 since Jul-18,2006 on Intel 820 DC
Html is html. Learning html will work whether your PC or the server holding the page (having html code to display the results) is in Windows, Linux, Unix any other.
So learn html by all means. But remember only in Windows are upper case and lower case identical while referring to web page or web site names. So be sure to be accurate and consistent in the html code that you write.
About notepad which you mention there are many similar and more advanced programs to create html code in linux.
If you want something free for Windows, I can also recommend HTML kit. It used to be free with for-pay enhancements, but now the previous version is offered at no charge and the current version is for-pay. It's been several years since I used it, but I was quite happy with it back in my Windows days.
Popular Linux editors include Bluefish, Kompozer (though it seems to have stalled), and any number of text editors such as Gedit and Kate that have HTML markup modes.
I use komodo edit mostly. It covers all my scripting needs for the moment. It has a few annoying things to it but I can deal with it. Just download komodo edit and install it system wide. It has very easy to follow instructions.
They so far have given the most accurate and upto date information. This is were I've learned alot of html code and 1 thing I've learn is keep your design seperate from your structure. Another words HTML its a structure and css is your design. As a new web developer you may find this a little harder. Personally I'm not the artistic type so I now offically pay people to do my sites.
