    Yeah stick to the basics. You should also learn some scripting such as javascript or php to allow much more control over what you're actually doing and to stand out from the crowd. If you already know c# or VB.NET you could go the route of using ASP.NET to construct your site (they also support javascript and php) but it's still html/css at the heart of the ASP.Net site

    PHP and JavaScript are other languages made for doing extra stuff. PHP is for the server, JavaScript is for the client. Tho really. To make the design of the website, HTML and CSS are the only standards that the browsers use.

    You can build onto a websites design using these scripting languages as I stated above.

    HTML, HyperText Markup Language is the language that web content is encoded in. CSS, Cascading Style Sheets are used to describe how the content is displayed (made pretty). JavaScript is a very versatile scripting (programming) language that adds interactivity to the web page in the user's browser. Any programming language can be used on the server side to write HTML to send to a user. PHP, Python, Java, Ruby, Perl, C, C++, shells and I've written a couple of pages in AWK and many more can all be used to generate web content.

    @WhoElseButMe They will always be the basis. It's like jQuery. It converts into JavaScript. The stuff you mentioned... essentially it's always HTML.

    To make web pages with no dynamic server content, you'll need to know about HTML, CSS and maybe Javascript. These are the fundamentals of any web site. They are required at the browser level. On the server side, you can use any technology that accepts http requests and responds to them. If you want to create dynamic server content, you will need to have code for handling requests (and validation), you'll need to handle the logical processes involved in each of the requests, and you'll need to set up your data access (and database). Some resources make a lot of this stuff easy for you. PHP is a good example of a powerful programming framework. While it has been referred to as a 'dying language', you can still do most things with it.

    It really depends on what kind of content you want on it.
