If you look at the top of the Web Development forums you'll see several pinned topics. One of them is Which Language is Best? That should help answer your question. If you have any trouble while learning, feel free to ask questions.

Since you're doing web development, you should really start with HTML before you try to move on to the actual languages of the web.

Like Erik said, learn HTML first. You will need to know it for anything you do on the web. Also, learn CSS at the same time as the HTML. They go hand in hand now. Afterwards, you can start learning Javascript, which will round out the basics for web development.

for (EDIT: easy to understand, in-depth) HTML tutorials go to w3schools.org

@ no2pencil - apparently you find java tutorials on this site inferior or you would have commented on those too

@ spencer - Where you go for your info is really up to you in the long run. As you can see different people have different preferences. Use whatever works best for you!

Why go to another site, when we have plenty of HTML Tutorials & Snippets here at Dream In Code?

& if you don't find something that specifically answers your question, Spencer, feel free to create a new topic to ask :)
