HTML Build a Simple Website Website Basics Introduction to the Project

Is there a good site to see all the "kinds" of tags that there are out there?

I'm looking for a kind of list so that I'll know which ones to use and what they all do - can I find this in one place?

As Prathom Stapronpiny said, you can find all the tags on w3schools.com, however, they are not the best place to learn. If you just want a list of tags with a description, HTML 4 tags are here: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/index/elements.html, and HTML5 tags are here: http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/elements.html.

Good Luck!

'Dash (Docs & Snippets' is an outstanding app which I use every day - it's around £12 on the Mac App Store (not sure of it's on other platforms), but it's updated regularly and contains guides to all HTML tags, as well as CSS, JS, Ruby, PHP... you name it, it's there.
