I recommend this site because the author makes it clear what HTML should be used for: Markup (structure); not presentation. In other words, HTML is used to markup the various parts of you website. If you have a paragraph, mark it up as such.
Code: [ Select ]
<p>This is a paragraph...</p>
If you have a heading, then use the appropriate tag:
Code: [ Select ]
<h1>this is a heading</h1>


As another way of saying the exact same thing, you use markup to indicate what the text <b>means</b>. lists can be marked up with br tags, but it doesn't have the same <b>meaning</b> as li tags. Meaningful markup is an important point which about 95% of people seem to miss (or just plain ignore).

In terms of technical excellency, meaningful markup and css styling is more important than Javascript, especially seeing as many people don't have support for JS. I think a lot of people gloss over CSS on the way to making stuff move and do fancy things with javascript. I know I did :lol: I then realised that JS is to be used sparingly and I had wasted a lot of time on it...

Key thing to remember when using javascript is to <b>never rely on it being there</b>. Make sure that the site is still 100% useable without it.

If anyone is interested in info on meaningful markup and why it is important, do a google for "semantic markup". It's the same thing, just with fancy words, and you'll probably get better results ;)

See, people here know a lot. :) Especially rtm223. It would behoove you to follow his sage advice. Not because he agrees with what I said, but because he is really good at this.

Everytime I see your username, rtm, I think of the phrase 'read the manual'.
Or more precisely, rtfm, as that used to be the most common answer to a question on the internet. Oh well, now I'm just blathering. I've got to go to bed. It's so late at night that early morning has already begun...

If you don't mind the pain, the best way I know of learning HTML and CSS is reading the specification from http://www.w3c.org.

Very painful but it'll save you lots of aggro later in life, the best way is perhaps the hardest.

PHP and MySQL is probably what you would choose to learn if you decide you need to.

You might choose to learn ASP instead of PHP if you are working with MicroSoft servers.

JAVA is generally unnecessary, typically people learn JAVA for JAVA server pages working with Tom Cat etc., this tends to be much more specialised.

I would say learn what you can on the basics first. Someone mentioned W3C, that is a great place to start. Check out http://www.caffeinefuelled.net/ for the CSS. Here are a few others you may want to take a look at:

http://javascript.internet.com/
http://www.mompswebdesign.com/jscript/index.html
http://cgi.resourceindex.com/ (Someone here may say you should use PHP instead. Since I don't know anything about it I can't say but that should be further down the road anyway)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/

**I bet that last one will get a lot of you fired up :lol: I don't even know what's in there, I just threw it up for a reaction :wink:

If you can get the girls to obey your instructions it is programming.

I do C++, JAVA, PERL, PHP, ASP.

Programming girls in English can be very useful if I want them to work on a website.

On the css topic, it seemed like after I became proficient in CSS, javascript became more or less useless since I can already do most of the important stuff with php. I can hardly see a need for it at all. At least php works on the backend and has no (or little) affect on d/l speeds (usually).

Yea, a good place to start "sticking" would be to gain a little mastery of the English language.
