Alien*Nation,

The first language you need to learn is HTML. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It's the language that makes up all the pages on the Internet. Then if you wanted to make your pages more dynamic you could learn a server side language like PHP, ASP or a client side scripting language such as Javascript! Here is a page with a collection of nice web programming tutorials.

http://www.w3schools.com/

I hope this is what you wanted.

Jordie

Don't forget CSS or Cascading Style Sheets this controls how your webpage is displayed, it can be very useful and is easy to pick up.

Yeah; they're good for making user determinded styles for the page if you get into more personalised pages with User Accounts.

MySQL isn't a database manager, it's the actual database. You can do some crazy things with it if you take the time to learn it.

mySQL and PHP. Good free open source combo, but you need to find a host that supports PHP. ASP.NET has a huge learning curve, but can do a lot of cool things. HTML and JavaScript are probably the best places to start. Just Google "JavaScript Tutorial" and you'll get more than you'll ever need.

Note that HTML is slowly - painfully slowly - morphing into XHTML. This is the integration of XML with HTML. The code is a bit stricter, but it's not impossible to figure out. Good to be aware of while you're learning HTML and web programming.

If you're looking at books, the new book "Beginning Web Programming with HTML, XHTML, and CSS" by Wrox gives a good overview. Plus, it's from 2004 so it's farily up to date. It doesn't suffer from the typical Wrox "throw 1000 programmers at it" approach. Plus it's pricey.
