. They have very easy to learn and well designed courses that end in a very widely recognized certification. I myself am certified in HTML from them and I would heavily suggest you use them. For a good HTML coding program, I would suggest Notepad++. http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
Hope this helps.
HTML and CSS are far from programming languages. They dont program anything, they just describe to the browser how to display text images and other elements.

to get a “certification” because W3Schools is not in any way affiliated or associated with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) despite their misleading name and a “certificate” from W3Schools is worth and means as much as a roll of toilet paper. There is even a website called W3Fools
that explains why W3Schools is not recommended to be used as primary source.
and +1 to what vipsteph said about w3schools.
and to the OP, Iphone is written with Objective C and for the android its Java (at least thats what the people i know use). Apps are a great way to go, I say go for it. As far as getting a certificate, you'll do well if you go to a community college and do a Computer Science Certificate or a Web Development Certificate which will give you the core essentials in what you need to know. You'll do even better if you can get a degree of some sort. After all, if you earn a certificate from a community college your more than already half way to an AS if not a transfer to a four-year (but throw in a few preqs too.)
Also, and you might have heard this before, before diving into any one language, understand what the basics of programming is. Know what classes, methods, functions, objects are and how they can be used. If you understand these basics first you'll do well.
Anyways Good luck and if you looking for a good career, your looking in the right direction assuming you love technology.
