Dear w3c.org

I admire all you are doing to make HTML and other subjects ever better
May I request a moment of attention of all the experts in www business ?
Simple individuals like me, use their computer to communicate and not to become an expert, just as most people use their car : You want it to start easily and to bring it to your destination with a minimum of technical expertise.
I use HTML to put information, that I want to communicate to others, on the web
My HTML knowledge is very rudimental and I do not plan to study it much further. My sites are used for the content and not for the presentation/gadgets
Would it not be possible to publish a COMPLETE list of all the commands, with their options and -for every command- a GOOD EXAMPLE ?
The best publication for people like me is : http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/
Starting from nothing, I have read this pubilcation for about 15 minutes and immediately tried it and ...... it worked ! Fantastic ! This is the way to transfer knowledge !
What is lacking is the recapitulative complete list of commands
Your publication http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/ is not so usefull because it is INCOMPLETE en there are no EXAMPLES
Nobody of my type will read all this text (I reather read Herodotus)
I have looked in libraries and all the books I examined had the same problem : incomplete and/or no examples
