Have you learned HTML ? Or do you even want to ? Is it useful ? It is the dialect the Internet thrives on, so if you want to make money there does it make sense to pick a little up ? What do you think about ?

I know some html tags. It is very important if you are a web deisgner or a developer. It's like the stepping stone in that field. Because now we lots of computer language like DHTML , XML, CSS, PHP, Perl, ASP etc..

HTML = hyper text markup language. HTML is one if the first web language and is the fundament of web pages. HTML is very useful and you can write directly html pages or use a software that creates html for you.

yup! it is very useful especially when you want to have your own websites and from that you can earn money too!! if somebody wants you to make their own website either a business website or personal websites.. HTML scripting is fun too! but it depends if you are just patience and you are enjoying it.. just keep on practicing and be familiar with the other html scripting...

I don't know if the organisation vision2learn.com is available in your country, but thatis how I learned. I managed to get a place on a free course and did the telematics level two course which led to a qualification, not very far up the tree, but a qualification nevertheless. Using this firm grounding I have managed to use the "for dummies" books to add little bits to my knowledge and I now have built a site for my partner's building firm, admittedly using a template, but it all works, and I am building a site for myself. Having said that, there are so many people offering free web sites etc at the moment I don't think it is necessary to learn html. I just think it is nice to be independent and know how to build a site, just in case history repeats itself and services that are free now do not get charged for in a few years' time. Also nobody knows how the internet will develop. Having said all that I am glad I took the trouble to learn, and it is actually a logical and quite straightforward code, so why not see if you can find a free course and give it a try? I hope you will find it every bit as enjoyable as I did.

I learned HTML when I was in College. In fact I'm glad I did, because my thesis was an online Inventory System.

You don't need to learn HTML to create a web page, as there are many HTML editors out there. Though, learning HTML is very easy. An excellent web site for beginners is http://w3cschools.com Mylot does not allow HTML tags in posts though, so whatever HTML you learn will not help you here, not for now.

I did a vision2learn.com course. I do not know if they are available outside of the United Kingdom, but my course was free and gave me a good grounding in html. I enjoy making web sites and trawl the search engines for any codes I can not find for myself, and have several sites up and running that are all my own work. It does help me to make a more original site and I am free to choose my own domains and have my own identity. However, there are a number of free web sites available now, I am not giving links since I have not personally tried any of them, so I do not know how good they are, but I do see a lot of sites with the "freewebs" tag and they do seem very attractive, so maybe it is not as essential as it once was to actually learn html. I do think that a knowledge of how to take a decent photo and then how to get the thing into the computer, sized and still looking good is a skill that is equally important as html, since there is no point in having a great site spoilt by poor images. Moreover, there is scope to resell your images (only your own, not anyone elses lol) as well. I have made a little money thanks to the course I took, but the enjoyment of the html and making the sites is the biggest benefit I have gained.

I am interested in learning HTML and have bought software to start learning it. I had to stop for a while due to other things happening but plan on getting back into it as it is a lot of fun and a person can make good money from making webpages. I think it is great and people may find it very enjoyable as well as making money doing it.
