I stopped piano lessons over the summer and now find pieces of music that have markings I am not familiar with, like "x", and numbers above mordents (like 313, 32, or 3). I am assuming the numbers are correct fingering for the mordent and inverted mordent? And is there a web site or a book I might find those little musical markings in?

If the X was beside a note, it means to raise that given note a whole step. ...and if you just do a search on the internet for "music symbols" you should be able to find out something.
