    Completely New to This

    Hi, I have not yet written one bit on Javascript or html. I wanted to come here first in order to get some good ideas on how to begin.
    1) Can I use the Notepad program already installed on my computer or should I download/use something else for html/javascript

    2) How do I run my Javascript on my computer/Internet browser?

    3) What is the best free website/database to learn from that will take me from the beginning giving me the most detail?

    Thank you for any advice you can offer up to me!

    You can use the standard notepad installed on your computer. However I recommend installing a free and simple editor that Highlights and indents your code for you, It makes code a lot easier to read. Personally I use Notepad++ (Free) but there are a lot of other ones out there.

    html

    If I want to write the code for my own website, should I learn a bit of html first so I know the basics? Then I can use Javascript for the majority of my code, correct?

    Thanks

    Html is a markup language you create your basis structure in it with all the data in it, you use css to style this structure and data. Javascript is a scripting/coding language you use it to improve the user experience.


    For a starter in web design you should focus on html and css you can make good websites with that.

    For starting with HTML and CSS, try the HTMLDog tutorials. The Mozilla Developer Network is also an excellent resource, both for beginner to advanced guides, and reference material.
