Well what do you guys think the best way for learning html is? Through a book? Through the internet? Through a program? Thanks for the help!
Oh yeah.. could you also tell me where I should go to get whatever you suggest. thanks again!
Start with a very simple book like HTML in Easy Steps by Chris Russell. Use a text editor like Notepad to create your HTML files. Run them in your browser. And avoid page-building programs like FrontPage, Dreamweaver etc., that will overcomplicate matters and in many cases change the code you've written!

A counsel: learn the basics: meaning and options of every tag, but don't waste your time trying to build complex pages with a text editor; programs like Frontpage or Dreamweaver maybe add some unnecessary code, but are the most quickly way to create a page.

Must strongly disagree with you ArgraJoca - Once you go down the path of Dreamweaver or frontpage or the like - you are stuck there! - I have seen the code- waded through it - lost hours (ok 20 mins/whatever) - .
And to be honest I personally find codebuilders quite confusing -
Nutcase - one has to get down and dirty with a text editor at some stage - may as well do it now!
And the internet will be your best friend - there are 1000's of resources out there to help you along and get you started http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/ is a good starting point - good luck

Don't want to make controversy; In fact I started in HTML with Notepad (before the existence of all this WYSIWYG programs), and I'm agree that you can't become subjected to this programs; you allways have to be curious and investigate (and have a good reference book).
But if developing web pages is your profession, you can't waste ten minutes creating complex nested tables, or applying styles, when you can do it in a less than a minute without checking for errors every time.
