    Learn them all! Get a good networking book, learn how the internet and web servers work, the learn about server side stuff through PHP. This will teach you a lot because you'll learn to set up and administer your own web server (on localhost). Then when you want to pretty your sites up, learn Javascript.

    And if you don't know HTML and can't pick it up in 10 minutes, wtf are you doing on a C++ board?

    To me, I don't learn HTML and I have trouble learning HTML.

    The reason is: Those angular brackets "<" and ">" just kept me from learning HTML.

    I've learned C# and I create web pages using Visual C# .net and I don't touch ASP.net. Since I create web pages by coding C#, ASP.net uses a code-behind file that ends with an extension ".aspx.cs". So, for example, if I have an ASP.net file called index.aspx and I code my web page with C#, the name of the C# file will be: index.aspx.cs.

    Off topic but I'm just thinking of a way if they can make HTML easy to read. For example...

    Code:
    -html
        -head
            -title
                This is the fiele of a web page-
            tiele-
        head-
        -body
            -P
                This is a web page.
            P-
        body-
    html-
    What it does is I use a "-" for every HTML statement that I want to begin or end. Like an open tag like <html>, I put a dash in front of it (example, -html). Like a close tag like </html>, I put a dash in the end of the statement to close it. For example: html-.

    This is just my opinion but like I said, I have trouble learning HTML and my brain just can't store it into my memory. If I learn C#, my brain stores it pretty quick.

    (By the way, please don't pay attention to my grammar part. I'm not good at it...)

    I'm sorry... but if you can put a "-" before and after open and closing tags, why is it so hard to learn the html? Is it the tags or simply the angular brackets? I don't get it, I really don't.

    HTML is one of the easiest things to learn... and if something like brackets are stopping you... then I'd say you have more problems than that.

    Brackets are used in every web language, no matter what you pick unless c# is allowing you to create entire sites by writing normal code... which to me seems like you're not much of a programmer.

    My statements still stand. (From both this thread and the one in the Tech Board concerning you, Grayson_Peddie)

    It's the brackets that stopping me from learning HTML.

    By the way, i'm a C# programmer. Please don't assume that I'm not much of a programmer.

    I'm assuming you have difficulty with brackets because of your disabilities, but I'm curious as to how you deal with parenthesis and how that differs from brackets.

    It's because of those tags like <html>, <td>, etc. But I don't have any problems with < and > in C-style language (for example: if(intvalue > 0) {} ). I'm trying hard dealing with those brackets in tags. But I can deal better with standalone < and >, &#123;, &#125;, ( and }.

    Edit: Thanks Thantos for your help.

    It's a bit silly because of the mesage that prevents me from posting without code tags even though I'm not writing a code
    Thats been discussed and the people in charge feel its the best solution abit not a perfect one.

    btw: &#123 ... &#125
    Use : & #123 and & #125 without the space between & and #
