I apologize in advance if any of this is insulting, but I get the impression that you know how to do design, but need some help with publishing to the "web."
Check out this site for a very simple intro to HTML. When I was first learning about web design I never bothered to buy a book... I looked at a bunch of sites and this was one I found very helpful.
Having a basic understanding of HTML, which is the mark-up language that makes web pages look like they do will be a real advantage... even if you end up using a visual design tool like Dreamweaver or NVU.
