E.g. has anyone used the Alison free training courses and are they any good?

It's been years since I was learning this but I can say that PHP is the way to go instead of just plain HTML...

Google university has some good tutorials. Code academy is a good site for learning as well.

PHP is undoubtedly extremely usefull and powerful, but can come later. If you go straight for PHP it introduces a lot of complexities, which makes debugging CSS & jQuery problems quite difficult for beginners.
Firebug should be your best friend. It's great for understanding an issues with your own pages, and for working out how people did things on other sites.
