    I think you should start from an html editor as dreamweaver or front page.
    Then buy some books about html or css. that would be easiler to learn for a newbie.

        It's more like

        <HTML>
        <HEAD>
        <TITLE>My title</TITLE>
        </HEAD>
        <BODY>
        My content
        </BODY>
        </HTML>

        There are a more tags that can be associated to HEAD or BODY and those tags also have attributes that can cause differing results.

          There are a more tags that can be associated to HEAD or BODY and those tags also have attributes that can cause differing results.
          Also, more than that:

          * Doctype
          * Language set.
          * Character encoding set


          HTML Code:
          <!DOCTYPE html>
          <html lan="en">
               <head>
                    <meta charset="utf-8"/>
                    <title>Example</title>
               </head>
               <body>
                    <!-- content -->
                </body>
          </html>
          I think that is the bare minimum, notice the html 5 doc-type, pure bliss for hand coders

          Edit:

          I've said this before and I'll say it again, please people stop using w3schools:

      Hey sany,

      I've recently learned html and css myself. It can get frustrating as hell sometimes, but just start small, with the basics. Learn how to make a very plain page with some content. Try to avoid css in the beginning.

      People have given you some great sources to learn from and I used a few myself. However the majority of my learning came from Lynda.com. I signed up for a 1 month subscription and it was the best money ever spent. I used to be completely helpless, couldn't even create and upload a simple page of text before, and now I have a fully operational website that was hand-written (not dreamweaver) as well as my css, along with some jquery sliders and a fully functional email form! There is however some great FREE sources out there. Just start small.

      Good luck.

    As said by jeremy morgan you can learn basic to advanced HTML through w3schools. Even, there is a tool which allows you to practice what you've learned. It is easy to use and helpful to learn the things easily and also to find the mistakes you've done or the errors.

    As others have said html shouldn't take long to learn the basics and there are many tips and tricks for beginners online. Dreamweaver is a good place starting place, however i would not advise to just stick to that as it has limitations and it does alot of work for you, so you will not know why/ how to fix those problems. A true understanding of how html and css work can't be replaced.

All of you rocks.............i already started learning HTML. Now i am trying it in W3schools.com and using dream weaver software for it.

But whatever the main fact is that i get this idea from all of you and started with your idea so when that man try to say something to me i got it easily. Whatever i learn is that first try yourself and than take a small help to someone. You will get success surely..........thanks a lot again all of you.........

    Just go to Lynda.com and get the HTML tutorial done by Bill Weinman. That's how I learned HTML. It will also teach you a little bit of CSS. After that just download a CSS tutorial.

    You can learn them both quick, but it will take a lot of practice to be any good at it. Just by knowing tags and such does not make you good. In my experience it takes a few tens of websites to build a decent developer. Good luck!

    I'm on board with the majority here. W3schools is one of the best places to go to learn html. Htmlgoodies is also a nice place to learn html as well. One thing to remember when writing code is Always close your tags! I can't tell you how many headaches I had forgetting to close a tag after I save a file.

      It is an easy sit-in-your-backyard and whip through it book. I think you'll find it will give you a good introduction.

    W3School's is the best to learn from i think this is probably where we all started in the beginning or have visited at 1 point or another. It has all the things you need do get started as a web designer.
    Learn this order
    1) HTML - this is so you can code your page
    2) CSS - This will help you learn how to style correctly and it is used on all websites
    3) Photoshop - if you want to actually design layouts

    Best of luck

    HTML can only build verrrry basic websites. To build semi-professional looking sites, you need atleast a basic knowledge of javascript and PHP on top of HTML/CSS. Especially with HTML5 since so much of it actually IS javascript.

    But, I feel I should point out that if you really do intend to make a living as a web designer, it's not easy. That's exactly what I've been doing for many years. It is fiercely competitive. Not to mention that there are many people in very poor countries that are offering to build websites for far less than they are worth. This drives the price down and makes it very difficult for a newbie to get decent pay. If you have a reputation, you can do allright. But without that, you'll be working for next to nothing.

    And do NOT waste your time learning dreamweaver. It creates terrible code that is buggy and much more complicated than it needs to be. If you want to do it professionally, learn to write the code yourself.

    Well, you do SEO, you should be able to find good tutorials about HTML/CSS yourself, and there is a million posts here about that, but OK. They already told you a lot of good web sites for tutorials, and some said to use dreamweaver or some similar platform for programming, but my recomendation for you is to work with Notepad ++ ! There are no shortcuts here! You need to LEARN first, after that you start working with dreamweaver, PHP designer, etc...
    Just my two cents.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6502772].message }}
  • Just saying, there's a lot more than just HTML, which is just the easiest part.

    Building sites for yourself is easy, nobody will question or demand anything. Creating sites for others is significantly more involved.

    I would suggest you start learning about the Wordpress platform first before touching HTML. Sure, knowing about HTML will help you but you don't need to be an expert in that area to start making money online.

    Learn Wordpress first and take on HTML bit by bit as required.

      I would suggest you start learning about the Wordpress platform first before touching HTML. Sure, knowing about HTML will help you but you don't need to be an expert in that area to start making money online.

      Learn Wordpress first and take on HTML bit by bit as required.
      Wordpress needs learning???
      just kiddin' ofc, but if he's really into this, better to start from basics ( HTML/CSS, JS, PHP, but after HTML/CSS he can start with wordpress )
      and besides, anyone can learn HTML/CSS in 5 day TOPS!!!

    HTML(hypertext markup language),it is very essential for web pages but not so hard.You can be a master in about 7 days .Actually CSS is very important,to be a good designer you should know it well.Just see "beginner css","or'really css guide", and finally w3school.
