Websites for openings? Hi all,

I'm trying to find a really good site to learn openings from - something with a visual board+notion would be ideal :-)

As this is my first step into openings i am looking to learn the following..

White: Ruy Lopez / English Attack
Black: Najdorf Sicilian / Nimzo-Indian Defence

all advice/hints/suggestions are welcome

Many thanks

Thanks! The chessops link looks excellent!

The only downside is that the site does not use algebraic notation... :( They use that awful descriptive notation that was obviously created by some truly evil charcter bent on messing with the heads of innocent chess enthusiasts. ;)

that's a pretty big downside What's even worse is that some parts of the site use algebraic and other pages use descriptive.
That is confusing.

For beginners.... ...try chesskids.com. Not sure if this will appear as a link but you can find the pdf files at

www.chesskids.com/grownups/openmenu.htm

They show the first few moves, explain the ideas, give ideas for plans (for black and white) and list the main variations
