    Like HTML is hard to learn. :hsugh: You'll get the language down in two weeks.

    But if you refuse on doing that, I suggest Dreamweaver for newbies, although I hate that application for other reasons.

    html isn't even really coding.... unless you want to do an insanely simple website, you're not gonna get around it. maybe just stick to myspace. you could, of course use a blogger software and get around it that way

    If you know any vB-script (as in, all those img tags/etc.) HTML isn't much more difficult; it's the same basic concept, just a markup language.

    Guess it depends on how retarded you are. I've taught someone HTML/CSS and they knew quite the significant amount in just two weeks. Was already hand coding some pretty nice layouts. Whereas, on the other hand, I've tried to train a girl at the office HTML for two years and she still doesn't understand the concept of tables.

    Trial and error.

    Design something up in photoshop then turn it into a webpage. When you run into barriers, look for answers, :o

    .

    HTML is NOT a programming language. It's a markup language and it's extremely easy to learn and comprehend especially if you know how to use BBCode on OT for example...

    • this is bold
    • this is italic
    • this is underlined
    • etc.

    If that makes sense to you, you can be making an HTML website in a few minutes.

    checkout W3Schools for step by step instructions and do it yourself examples.

    just dive in, you'll be fine!

    What I do after I design a site in Photoshop is to first export the whole page in a single image and manually cut it up into the pieces I need. Sometimes I export the same image multiple times to get all the pieces (especially if there is transparency in the images). Once I'm done with that, I code out the html and css needed for it to work. Though it's a big chaotic in the beginning, it always seems to work well for me.

    P.S.- Photoshop's automatic HTML export is cluttered and messy, don't use it :ugh:

    the mass search and replace feature in that program :bowdown: before the php include days.

    client: so... I got married, my last name changed
    me: you are asking me to edit over 500 pages
    client: i understand
    me thinking: notepad++

    i love making them feel retarded guilty. I think I ended up doing it for 50 bucks and she and her new husband took me out to this ridiculous expensive sushi place
