    Exclamation My list of website building skills ,complete ?

    i want to be able to build a "pro grade" dynamic web site myself , so from what i know (from my general computer knowledge) is that i will need:
    HTML/CSS
    +
    client site scripting language : the one i know is javascript
    +
    server side scripting language : most commonly ASP or PHP along with a database like MSSQL server or Mysql
    +
    graphic design knowledge : most commonly Photoshop

    The only thing I can see wrong with your list is that graphics design knowledge and knowing how to use Photoshop are two completely different skills.

    Graphics design is mostly done in your head and on paper. Photoshop would be used for throwing together designs that have already been worked out to show a client and for preparing images for use on the web. Any other graphics program you happen to have available can be substituted for Photoshop if you are just creating images for your own site.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    I've found knowing XML to be useful, even though its a relatively small percentage of the space.
