A book on HTML would be a good idea too since your HTML has to be correctly formed for servlets and JSP to work. At least download the Specifications from www.w3.org - just as you should also have the Specifications for the Servlet and JSP APIs on your computer.
I really love the _Hip Pocket Guide to HTML 4_ but it is out of print and hard to find.
