    You won't want to start with that stuff.

    You need to learn HTML first. There are loads of good tutorials on the web.

    Well all this 'crap' is actually probaly what will make people call you a 'genious' with. With a serverside language like asp or php you can create somethin like this forum, a guestbook, a hit coutner, a cms, a web hosting company plus billions of other stuff.

    Ok, as you've given us nothing to help you with.... what serverside language does your host support? If it supports php, then we'll go with php... if it supports asp, then we'll go with that, etc

    Niosis....Teach yourself the following in that order.

    •Web-Design
    •XHTML / HTML
    •CSS
    •PHP
    •MySql

    This will get you very far when it comes to websites.
