I want to access list items from a SharePoint 2010 site in a HTML application (not connected to the SharePoint site).

My approach is to use SharePoint web services by passing user credentials through JavaScript or JQuery.

I know I need to use _vti_bin/lists.asmx to access list items and _vti_bin/authentication.asmx to authenticate, but some how I am not able to put things together and make it work.

Can I get some directions?

Good to know: My SharePoint site is not accessible to anonymous users.

SharePoint Client Object Model will allow you to use a more standard api to connect to SharePoint from off the server. There is also a version for C# if your "HTML" is a aspx site as well.
