HTML is the best to learn first, because it's the structure of your page. In other words you can't have a web page/site without HTML.

PHP is a server-side langauge, which does things such as sends the input of a text area to the server.

After learning HTML I would learn XHTML (Extensible HyperText Markup Langauge). It's a cleaner, stricter version of HTML, and will soon replace it.

Once you have the structure of web pages, then next step would be to learn CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS is used to create the look of the page, you use it to give things color, border, increase/decrease somethings size, and much more.

Then I would learn a browser-side langauge, such as JavaScript. JavaScript was designed to add interactivity to HTML pages.

Now I would learn a server-side langauge such as PHP.

Hope it helps, Thanks, Death

XHTML is going to replace HTML? So that means that browsers will no longer interpret HTML code anymore? That wouldn't make sense, because then all the old pages would become dead, and that wouldn't be good.

There'll still be HTML, it just won't be used as much, at least that's the theory. MS have refused to implement it properly so it hasn't taken off.
