I want to self-study in web programming and I have 2 options whether to start in PHP or ASP. So as a starter which do you recommend? Another thing is about JavaScript and vb script which I am a bit confused. Can somebody give me a clear explanation on how they relate to each other. Many thanks.

I have already knowledge in HTML. I am just quite a bit confused about ASP and PHP because they just look the same to me.

PHP and ASP.net are back-end server-side languages. While PHP can run on most platforms, ASP.net only runs on windows boxes (which means it suffers all the issues that come with this namely cost of OS and stability/security related threats). PHP is the obvious choice, unless ofcourse you have already programmed in VB.net or c#.net (As those are the common languages ASP pages utilize) Javascript and VBscript, are mostly used as front-end client-side languages. Javascript is quite important in website design and making things look 'cool' and thanks to Ajax it can actually do useful things as well lol. VBscript not so much, it used to be popular but thanks to a host of security threats most browsers these days block it by default. Note: Server-side = code executed by the server (user cannot view it and interacts only with the results) Client-side = Executed by users browser (user has option to disable it so the idea is to not make it do anything integral to the website)
