    w3schools is the best IMO for free learning web stuff. I still refer to it at times. Also, http://www.devguru.com/home.asp can be a life saver!

    The other dude here by us uses Wamp ...

    I have to learn html first though.

    I am going to host a site for myself to play around with.

    Just a basic one. http://www.host4africa.com/ The R99 one.

    This is the right way to go ?

    i'd suggest testing your html first using ur offline(localhost) webserver. If everything is fine, u can then upload it to your online host.

    html codes can be used without a local webserver. however, if you consider it running as a website you'll be needing wamp or xampp first inorder for you to know how a online website works. :-)

    I'd honestly suggest learning a non-web language first - if you don't know one already. It'll give you a good idea of good programming practices. The upside to this, is some of the non-web languages, also do double-time as popular web languages. Python and Ruby are two prime examples (though people do some non-web PHP too, meh).

    To start, I'd say do as NPnyc suggested and learn the markup of the web first with (X)HTML. Learn the stylesheet stuff with CSS, learn the browser-side stuff with ECMAScript (JavaScript, ActionScript... bleh Flash). Once you have a pretty solid understanding of that stuff, move onto a server side language. PHP is pretty popular these days, but PHP allows for some pretty ugly code, and bad practices (which is one of the reasons I suggest you learn a language like Java or C++ first). PHP also has some really good documentation at php.net/docs. Python is pretty popular as well, with some nice frameworks like Django and Pylons. Ruby is also obviously pretty big with Ruby on Rails.

    Good luck. Feel free to PM me if you get stuck and need some one-to-one help. :-)
