    It depends. If you want to use Ruby to create web pages, then the more you know about HTML the better. Even if you want to create web pages and know next to nothing about HTML (or javascript or CSS for that matter), there's a chance you would be satisfied using Rails "scaffolding" pages.

    But if all you want to do is create command line apps, then no HTML is needed at all.

    Some database knowledge will be a big help either way.

    But as far as needing to know anything "in depth", IMHO, the more you know the better, but don't let any weak areas stop you from jumping in and getting your hands dirty.

    Sitepoint has a reference link at the top: http://reference.sitepoint.com/css

    There you will find references for HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

    You can also go to a site called HTMLDog which is a great reference and source for tutorials.

    If you do better with video instruction, you should look into Lynda.com.
