    I started in April 1999 when I was 14. It was at work experience, and I had to stay in school, so I chose the I.T department. They set me a project to design a web page. I started then in NotePad using about three books as references. Back then tables were so complicated to me, haha.
    Then in about November 1999 I made a web site which got me suspended from school for a day. It was so funny. But it got taken offline because the school threatened us in various ways of expulsion.

    I started playing with HTML back in 1994, which made me... uh, 9 years of age. I can still remember AOL's Personal Publisher.

    How old was I?

    I was knee-high to a jelly bean!

    I was 11 when I started. I am 13 now and I have come a long way. I already know HTML and Perl and I am working on PHP and MySQL. Hopefully one day I will be a successful designer.

    Well, you've certainly got a good start! Good luck - but somehow I don't think you'll need it..

    I'm beginning to think people these days have nothing but the computer as part of their lives.

    I think I was about 12 or 13 when I first got started. Now I just need to learn how to create those pesky graphics. I guess it just takes lots of practice to do that.

    yeah

    i'm 17 now but I was about 12 when I started playing around with HTML. I made a few lame, crappy sites, but then I started designing graphics.

    I'm 17 now, but not many people like to use the raw HTML anymore usualy pubisher or some other cheap arsed program that does a bad job of it. I have come to use dreamweaver though, it seems to do a good job.

    I was 23.. about 4 years ago..seems so long ago. HTML 3 was all the rage. I learned from an online tutorial at w3c.org. My first page was also on GeoCities !! That was in the days before all the pop-ups!

    Well, if anyone cares =)

    I've been programming HTML for 1,5 years now, started when I was 15, but the funny thing is, I only know the basics along with some PHP things, but that's all I need to know to get a site running. All I know I learned by being hosted by Messiah, browsing these forums somewhere as well =)
    Thanks mate

    I am mainly doing graphics, well, trying =)
    But I finished school today! Parteey!! =)

    I started when I was nine, I think (five years ago) and have since then decided that it's a good career path (web design, that is), at least until I hit college age, haha. And for whoever made the post about people using publishers like FrontPage or DreamWeaver, I still use good ol' Notepad, although I am going to look into trying to making my own HTML publisher.

    In reply to moospot - those were the good ol' days eh? There were only a few free website services back then... Xoom, Geocities, Angelfire are the ones I can remember. Now there are hundreds and most of the big ones - including the three I mentioned before - have been bought out; Geocities by Yahoo, Angelfire by Lycos, and Xoom by someone or other. And almost nobody has pages without ads anymore.

    Jesus Christ!
    I'm so surprised! You're so young. What's happening? In future you born and just start sitting in front of computer and programming and programming.

    I started learning HTML at university and maybe I was 21 ... I can't remember now.
