http://htmldog.com/ is oft recommended as one of the better tutorials

Ooh, never use an Office product to make web pages. Nor MS Publisher.
They churn out the absolute *worst* HTML you'd ever find.

"Hand-coding" is the way to get the best results. Use a better text
editor. Since you are Windows, I'd suggest Crimson Editor.
It is a great editor and project manager. Color-coded syntax and all

Many have recommended this WYSIWYG tool for amateurs:
It is a standalone, updated version of the Mozilla Composer spinoff

Do understand that WYSIWYG tools never really are.
