Php & xml tutorials for beginers

i just saw the php & xml tutorials here at kirupa (will be taking a look at those as soon as i get done posting this)… as well as the thread with that nice list of php tutorials and resources.

i’m kinda hoping somebody might be able to point me specifficly towards some well written php and xml tutorials for beginers. “well written” is kind of open to debate, but if it helps, i learned the basics of html at, and the basics of CSS at [url=“”] . in my opinion, both are resources with “well written” tutorials for beginers.

so, if you’ve got 'em… opinions for well written php & xml tutes for beginers would be greatly appreciated!!
