    You do not have to be a computer major.

    I am a Finance/marketing major with minor in economics. No computer what so ever. However, I have always had a thing for the web. You just need to the have the will to make tons and tons of mistakes. Never give up even though you do not understand anything. Like any hard work in life, it takes time.

    Now, where to start? There is a 100's of places where to start. You can start by looking at tutorials on Youtube to start.

    Buy a basic HTML book. HTML for dummies to get a start on.

    And remember Google is your friend.

    Yeah honestly you should try and find simple and interesting pages and using the "View Source" function on all browsers to view the HTML and see how they do it.

    Then just create a simple web page and mess around. Use w3schools.com and maybe an HTML book if you prefer to have an actual book.

    Honestly, you do not have to be exceptionally skilled with the use of computers or anything else for that matter in order to know and use HTML.

    HTML, really, just consists of a few simple rules and the knowledge of using tags properly.

    Most opening tags have a closing tag, and this is the case for most.

    If you are interested in learning HTML, you might want to check out the following HTML cheat sheet:

    Code:
    http://www.webmonkey.com/2010/02/html_cheatsheet/
    As for software, I would suggest getting either Adobe Dreamweaver or something similar. This way, each time you create a new HTML page, it will add all the necessary HTML tags and page setup, including your doctype, html, head and body tags for you. From there, you are ready to start using HTML right away.

    That link leads to a bunch of information that was out of date in the last century or always wrong. Avoid at all costs.

    Hi there jackmike008,

    I see that someone has suggested w3schools.com for your erudition.

    This site, though...

    ...is not particularly happy with w3schools for various reasons.

    Instead they recommend these sites...
    1. HTML Dog
    2. Opera Web Standards Curriculum
    3. Google's HTML, CSS, and Javascript from the Ground Up
    4. SitePoint Reference
    5. The MDC (Mozilla's Doc Center)

    ...as being more reputable sources.

    Im sorry Charles, but I do not follow. That page I provided the link for only lists tags with a little information about them. Obviously, there are much better resources out there on the net, but there is nothing wrong with what I provided. Very few of those tags are depricated, and are still used to this day. It is not a full list of HTML tags, but list something.

    Here are more:

    That list mixes HTML with XHTML, gives incorrect information about some of the tags and employs depricated attributes. Very bad, indeed.

    Well HTML Dog gives us an invalid XHTML document as an example of basic HTML. The rest didn't look too bad.

    It seems that you just can't trust anybody to get their facts straight, doesn't it.
    I will have to bring that site to the attention of w3fools.com and get them to improve their act.

    Hi there Charles,

    I have just visited http://w3fools.com/ and found that they no longer recommend http://htmldog.com/.

    Unfortunately, I cannot go back and edit my post to reflect this.

    I never used w3schools, and have always heard only bad things about them.

    Is this a real response? w3schools.com is strictly a free resource that is built alongside the w3 consortium which define the standard for the web.

    Stop spamming..
