    That will depend entirely on what you need to do. For basic design, use HTML and CSS, if you need to add some simple interactivity or dynamic content, javascript. For more advaced issues, a server side language (PHP or Perl) might be required.

    eXtensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) and basic Cascading Style sheets (CSS) are probably the two technologies a beginner should be learning: http://www.w3.org/ HTML has been deprecated.

    No it has not. The HTML 4.01 Specification is a stable document and the W3C has announced that there will not be any more changes to HTML. And the W3C has not asked us to stop using HTML. To the contrary, with the 4.01 Specification HTML has reached a state of perfection.

    Now, while HTML 4.01 is the perfect medium for communicating documents, it's not always the perfect medium for developing them. XHTML is being developed for that along with XML Style Sheet Transformations which allow for the quick transformation of an XHTML document into HTML 4.01.

    I meant that he was right that they should learn XHTML, not that HTML had been depreciated...
