I was just curious on how people here learned HTML or XML (assuming you did, which, judging by the fact you are actually here on this board). How long did it take for you to learn the basics of HTML? How proficient are you right now in HTML? Which resources did you use when you were learning HTML (or are currently learning HTML?). How did you find learning HTML?Thanks.

HTML is a very easy and nice language to learn! I Have been learning HTML for a while but at the moment I'm leaning PHP.
When I was learning I went to http://www.w3schools.com/ I found them really ausome. It deppends on how keen you are on learning and how much time you have to learn it.
Even though HTML is simple it can be very effective when you know how to use it properly.
Good luck in learning,
HTML is the easiest of all to learn. Fairly forgiving compaired to say CSS also. If you want to learn it, the best way is to use a simple editor, and your windows OP. Right click on a web page then click View source. There you can see the basics. that is unless the page is locked up so you can not do this. You can also download many good HTML editors that are free or have a Trial offer, such as dreamweaver.But if you will follow these steps you will learn it, and maybe even lear other ways Good Luck to ya
There's isn't much learning to do in terms of HTML...once you understand how it works, you can just look up the specific commands you need online. It's pointless to sit and memorize everything. I learned it almost ten years ago, using the site http://www.htmlgoodies.com/. I think the site is still around, but now I'd probably turn to w3schools.com or the like. In any case, you should learn it online rather than a book since it's free that way and you can copy/paste code snippets more easily.
No point in using Dreamweaver...Just get Notepad++ there's nothing bad about it... It is better than Dreamweaver. In fact, I have totally decommissioned Dreamweaver, I don't need to anymore after I found Notepad ++...@moutonoir The thing is, if you do that, you wouldn't know what tags to use in the first place. I mean, if you keep only to one site that uses tables, you would get really good with tables and leave out <div>s entirely (which is what I did... )So... yeah...

Try Quanta on your Linux box.
How long did it take for you to learn the basics of HTML?
It didn't take me too long. Although it depends what level of HTML your reffering to. Im not too sure how long it took me to learn and memorised the basics asit was some time ago.. probably a month or so.
How proficient are you right now in HTML?
Im building my website using alot of the HTML codes I have learnt. So Im fairly proficient.
Which resources did you use when you were learning HTML (or are currently learning HTML?)
I used vaious Tutorials. One I think is great to start with is Emblas. Her Tutorials are simple and easy to follow. From there, practise using the codes. Fiddle with them andsee what works and what doesn't. Once you learn to read HTML its much easier.
How did you find learning HTML?
I found HTML great. It was simple to follow and it works very well for me now. Im starting to learn bits of PHP to make my site a little more complex.
To test your HTML save it on somthing as simple as Notepad (On Windows). Instead of saving yourdocument as '.txt' save it as '.html'. Then you can view it in your internet browse by clicking 'File' then 'Open' then browse for your file and open.
If you ever get stuck with HTML, search tones of keywords of it on Google. Google always helps
I learn HTML within a very very short time. HTML is that much easy. I have been using it for 4 years. I learned it when I was in my graduation. At first, I thought it was a very difficult language when I look at some sample code. Because those lessthan(<) and greater than(>) symbols and words in between them appeared confusing to me. But when I wrote my first program, all my doubts vanished. Only one thought in my mind...Easy...Easy and Easy. I had never seen any language this much easy.Now, with my experience with HTML, I think I am very proficient at this language. Happy with my knowledge with it.Of course, updating our knowledge is important in every field, but it is must in computer filed. So, I am still learning it and its new developments. To learn html, I completely depended on internet. I Downloaded many ebooks from internet and started my learning.My journey with html is really really cool. It never troubled me.
