I'm brand new to programming and web development. (Sorry - I know everyone gets tired from hearing from newbies...) I have 2 web application concepts that I need to develop and produce. (I'd outsource it to developers, but I don't have the $$$ to shell out, so I'm trying to do it myself.) 1) If I'm trying to build an initial prototype, which language would be better to use for someone with my limited skills? 2) What is the better language to use overall, regardless of my background?

Thanks for the help.
