Here they are:

W3C Recommendation 19 December 2000

 Modularization of XHTML
W3C Recommendation 10 April 2001

Introduction to CSS3

also worth reading:

CSS Mobile Profile 1.0
Working Draft 29 Jan 2001
Latest version: 

if you are not familiar (yeat) with CSS2, than read this as well:
Cascading Style Sheets, level 2
CSS2 SpecificationW3C Recommendation 12-May-1998
Latest version: 

As about instructional sites - you may want to check http://www.css.nu for 
CSS designs and bug work-arounds.
But I doubt that you will find somewhere CSS3 Tutorial. If you are interested 
in CSS3, I can send you several examples I did - but they are rather basic, 
just to illustrate some new properties.
As about XHTML basic - well, make a page in XHTML 1.1, strip all the fat, and 
you are at XHTML basic already ;-)
Short and simple hint: do not use any properties in HTML/XHTML, use CSS for 
layouting/formatting, and you will find that XHTML is more easy to master 
than HTML.
