I wouldn't say it's exhaustive, but I've got a collection of stuff on my site that people have found useful. Also there is the tutorial section right here...

she asked me if I knew of any good resource which explained basic to advanced SLR photography from a digital perspective, not only shutter speed and composition, but CF cards, how to work with limited DR, noise, color spaces, advantages of RAW, etc.

http://www.luminous-landscape.com has some really good articles!

Shootsmarter has some good stuff, but also some pretty ignorant and misleading stuff on color management. Caveat Emptor.

I've sold my 10D to a beginner who is interested in putting in some real  time and effort to learn photography (distant family so she got a good deal). Although I've provided my ACR settings and CS actions together with telling her to by CS2 and more RAM, she asked me if I knew of any good resource which explained basic to advanced SLR photography from a digital perspective, not only shutter speed and composition, but CF cards, how to work with limited DR, noise, color spaces, advantages of RAW, etc.

Anything online would help as would a good book title. Courses are out of the question as she has a new baby and limited time.  Anyone got some good ideas?

There is an excellent introductory photography textbook, "Photography" by London & Upton.  While older editions cover traditional film photography, there is a recent edition that's been updated for digital-specific stuff too.

Another fine book that's less comprehensive for photography in general but has more specifically on digital capture and post-processing is "Digital Photography and Imaging" by Peter K. Burian.  The two books would make a good complementary pair.
