    And I was thinking maybe web design? :dunno:

    I'd like to learn about the coding rather than the actual aesthetics at least at first. I guess that would involve HTML and php mainly? Any recommendations to get me started?

    I have a basic knowledge of java and to a lesser degree HTML, so at least understand a lot of the coding concepts.

    If you dont know html/css... you pretty much have to start there.

    HTML/CSS is a great start. If you go for that get:
    -Firefox
    -Firebug (a Firefox addon)

    It might be more useful to learn a content management system like Joomla. It's more contemporary than HTML and used a lot in real world design.

    Disagree with most here.

    Since you understand coding concepts already, I would dive straight into PHP, and learn a solid framework. I suggest starting off with CI to get your feet wet.

    Focus on that IMO.
