The ignition switch is the top suspect. If the warning lights don't come on when you put the ignition in the "run" position you can bet the switch is bad. See the first source. There was also a recall on hte ignition switch in your 1999 Accord - second source, last item.

After that a good place to begin is to see what happens when you use starting fluid. I like to open the air cleaner (the box where the air filter is) and spray the filter for about three seconds, then close up the box to trap the fumes. If the engine burns off the starting fluid and dies the fuel delivery is causing

your problems, if not, it is ignition or timing belt.

If the starting fluid works the fuel pump relay, also known as the main relay, is the prime suspect. One of the most common Honda failures of all, the details and a test are in the third source.

Finally, if the timing belt has never been changed it is a concern. Visual inspection is the first step.
