I highly doubt you've learned ALL there is to know about HTML. It's a smaller language, granted, but it's still rich and full. There's always something new to learn. But if you're getting to the point where it's not working for all you want to do then yea, Go with CSS first. My web programming progression was like this: HTML > CSS > PHP > and now I'm onto JS. But I STILL don't know everything about any of them. The moment you assume you're learned everything there is to learn is the moment you stop growing; the moment you stop moving forward and progressing.

No JS is for adding flashing text and stuff, although you can do some things with it. I believe PHP and MySQL is for database's and more advanced stuff like that.

JS can do some pretty amazing stuff. However, it is a bit intimidating to start learning by yourself. Definitely hard to initially 'grasp'.

I strongly suggest checking out jQuery.
It is a JavaScript framework that focus's on making JavaScript quick, easy, and efficient.

You can learn that very easily and without much trouble, rather then learn JavaScript as a whole.

You can visit jQuery's website at jQuery: The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library . Check out some of their plugins and examples and you'll see the power it has.. Another benefit is even if you do not know how to use it, you can just grab the coding from an already developed plugin and easily apply it to an already finished website.

Learn CSS and then go for CSS3. Styling is what everyone needs. CSS3 will make all your designs easy. Though it is not supported completely in many browsers but people using mozilla, opera(NOT IE!) will surely enjoy it.

Some of the styles famous in CSS3 are rounded corners, placing divisions, creating columns, etc.

Best Wishes!

The only reason why I haven't learned CSS3 and HTML 5 is because of the incompatibility with the older browsers. I'd probably focus on CSS2 and HTML4 right now cause most browsers being used now support that. And learn CSS3 and HTML 5 in the future when it's used a lot more.
