Being more technology oriented I have a harder time with the layout and colors of a page, I guess I am not that creative :-P
If you start using AJAX I strongly suggest using a framework such as mojo or jquery, they are priceless when coding by hand. I dont know why I am rambling nightcat pretty much nailed it.
On the otherside if you are coding ASP, ajax is insanely easy but you do need to know either vb.net, c# or one of the other supported object oriented languages. If you know java or C++ already you will find C# VERYYYY easy.
I code in C# everyday and it is easy as hell and pretty effin fast. I still love php though :-) Even in that case you should know html, css, and a little js.
I agree with the databases as well, you may need to learn some SQL (unless you are lazy and use LINQ in VS).

Either way, you have to learn the nuts and bolts. The creative end I think you have to have, innately. No doubt you can improve on it, however.
I've been busy with school lately so I've had to prolong a few things. But i have finished basic html, really simple, and I'm on to my next language.
Thanks nightcat for shedding some light on the difference between the two, as far as i knew i though 1 guy developed and designed :P At this point, i guess its still early in the game before i really have to make a choice between the 2.
On another note, i recently learned how the email system works, MUA's and MTA's. Yes i now know what goes on when i hit the send button. long story.....
Anyway, i will continue my endeavor, hopefully to see some results soon.
Oh, and oofki, ill definetly check out that book.

Actually, you could do both design and development.
