Let’s face it, even if you are planning to use the provided installation script to make a CMS website, blogging website or use the provided web builder from the web hosting provider, you still have to learn some HTML. There is no escape from getting your hands dirty into coding a web page. Programming a web site is a tedious affair. A page may not look the way you want it to, and you have to spend some time searching through the code to look for the source of error.
Unfortunately, without some knowledge of HTML, you will not be able to tweak your website properly. You may want your website to display some items for example Google adsense, or some photos from your Flickr account or even videos from your YouTube account. And how else can you do it if you don’t know any HTML?
There is a dime and a dozen website in the internet with their tutorials on how to learn HTML, so I’ll not repeat any more tutorials about learning HTML. But what I’ll point out here is to pick up the essential items of HTML code that you will need and use most regularly. Even if you are using a CMS software or blogging software, some HTML knowledge will help you out to make a web page or web site to behave the way you want it to behave.
Take your time to learn the codes. As you use it more often, you will refer to reference material and tutorial web site less and less.
