This is a very good question. “Should I learn html?” Or, should I just learn a wysiwyg (drag and drop web page maker). And if I learn html, how far should I keep going in my learning of web languages. Should I learn CSS, Should I learn PHP, the list goes on and on.
I Bill the Geek, am a Geek. I write code, create electronic images and animation everyday. I like it. That is what I do, that is what I am. But for many, web creation is just a sideline, a hobby.
For anyone in the world of all things web, you need to learn html. But many clients ask me, “Should I learn html?”
Christopher Heng of thesitewizard.com puts together an excellent picture of how far you want to go in your understanding of html.

So if you are asking yourself, “Should I learn html?” read the article.
