When I was doing the Fireworks materials, I chose html first, thinking it would be less cumbersome than flipping back and forth to the videos. But I was wrong. The CBTCafe ended up being a mistake - I tried a few things, but the wrong version, and the text instructions yielded less than happy results. So back to Joyce Evans, and even when the versions didn't match exactly, they were far easier at a beginning level. I was also able to find my mistakes more easily using the video tutorials.
