    Hmmm well WP doesnt actually build sites. It manages your content, and it uses a MySQL database and PHP scripts to output HTML and CSS. HTML , CSS ( and even PHP) are not hard to learn.. but like anything else to become really good at them it will take some time and effort. the rewards are well worth it, however.

    HTML consist of only a couple of hundred tags, but remember that HTML is NOT about a document appearance but rather its semantic meaning. Essentially you build an outline of your information in HTML. After that you can move on to CSS. And if you want to automate the whole thing you can pick up PHP and MySQL

    Take a look at http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp.

    They have
    1. some simple tutorials also with online examples which you can easily modify, cut, paste and use in your own scripts.
    2. quizzes
    3. certificate

    I also recommend using FireFox and the following unobtrusive browser addon. This is the best from numerous other addons.

    I am not affiliated in any way I just think it is an exceptional product.

    HTML itself is very simple. It's one of the easiest things you can learn. But it won't take you all that far in web design. Essentially, HTML is a set of tags that you use to tell a web browser what kinds of contents you have. for example, you can specify which text should appear a standard paragraphs, which as headings, which as list items etc.

    But HTML on its own is very plain, so at a minimum you need to learn CSS as well. There are many books on HTML and CSS. Both are—in essence—very easy to learn. You can be up and running in days—which you can't say of too many subjects.

    I'm always wary when people recommend w3schools. See http://w3fools.com/

    These are great resources for learning:

    That may be strictly correct, but it's hardly an appropriate resource for a beginner wanting to learn HTML.

    I also asked the same question a few days earlier. I got help from different experienced people. They told me to learn HTML, CSS, JAva script and then pHp and MySQL. I am following the order. And I started to learn HTML . It is really easy. Take help from http://tutorials.oohcamila.com/ for basics.
    I also made site using WordPress. And wanted to do some web desigining by myself. So I have started learning HTML. Good Luck. But remember you also have to learn the other language in an orderly manner.
