Hi,
while trying to look up HTML/CSS references, I came across this interesting site full of webdesign cheatsheets : http://visibone.com.

The author, Bob Stein, has put some good webdesign reference information online like:
"The 216 color webmaster's palette"
"The world map with internet country codes"
"hexadecimal HTML color codes"
"JavaScript a free online quick reference"
and more:
Color Lab  Swatches  Color Codes  Color FAQ  Color Wheel  Color Blindness  Popups  Font Survey
HTML Tags  Style Sheet  Characters  JavaScript  Regular Expressions  Country Codes  Typing Tutor

The most important part however is that he has made cheatsheets in print form for easy reference to carry around with you. The rationale is stated like this:"It's not what you learn. It's what you remember."
Quote
I believe complexity is best mastered by seeing the whole picture in rich detail; that expertise consists mainly of vivid mental pictures; that working knowledge is best aided by precise reminders within view or reach. I've tried to give you both extremes, the totality at a glance, with as much useful detail as can fit.
And so, he's crafted near works-of-art - printed cheatsheets made with great attention to detail like colors, contrasts, layout, sizes, fonts, etc. to display HTML color codes, fonts, layouts, contrasts - the standard HTML/CSS references. The cheat sheets are not limited to that. There are others for MySQL, Characters, JavaScript, Regular Expressions, Country Codes etc.

NOTE: the site may appear amateur at first glance, but you'll find it's not, when you realize that colors and layouts are his forte, he probably knows best how to arrange those around the page.

So, if you have the liking for offline references, visibone is for you.

Also, you can vote for which cheatsheet he should work on next at his survey page:

Hope that helps,
