I need a site that explains Latex to dummies
just google and you'll find plenty of such, thats the way I learned.
you can also search this forum for 'latex'
That's pretty much all you'll need to gain a decent grasp of the language.
There are also some good stuff in wiki books
I personaly suggest you could try LYX(http://www.lyx.org/) to start writting latex. And there are some video tutorials on the website.
