Well, for starters, you need to know about html.

Thats the basic web programming language.

Then after you know most of the basics on html, you can go on to adding in php scripts into the html and even a css stylesheet.

Have a look on google for html tutorials.

Lesson number 1:

Don't use Frontpage to make webpages with. The pages will often break in Firefox.

Lesson number 2:

Don't use Office (especially Word or Publisher) to make webpages with. The pages are guaranteed to break in Firefox.

Lesson number 3:

Don't make pages that only work in Internet Explorer. Don't make pages that break in Firefox/Opera. And don't plaster "this page is designed for IE" buttons on your website as if its the best browser since sliced bread.

Lesson number 4:

Repeat lesson numbers 1-3 on a regular basis.

I would recoment checing out macromedia studio - dreamweaver for your designs, it has a free 30 day full download on www.macromedia.com but the commecial version is quite expensive unfortunatly. it is a good too for leaning and chaching code though.

I used a simple free HTML/ftp editor program like : coffee cup express or you can use::::

Coffee Cup HTML Free
arachnophilia
Ace HTML Free editor
web-o-rama

These programs are FREE and very good to start on.

I started by making a change in a simple webpage's HTML code and then "testing" it in the browser (all of these programs have a "browser" button). Try working with changing a color or adding in a picture. When you understand what happened in your change, and why, then you can go on to making other things in your pages.

These programs are very easy and it is very hard to make a mistake. Once you see "what" is changed when you change something in the code, then it becomes easier and easier to understand.

Like a giant puzzle.

Good Luck.

http://www.nvu.com/ is also a very good WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor.

I would recomend you learn to write html by hand, it is very simle so if you can master it you will have a lot of problems with everything else.

Make sure you learn css as well, you can do a lot of cool things with it. And once you have worked it out it makes writeing web pages a lot quicker. I learnt css from http://www.w3schools...s_reference.asp just click on an example and see what is does.

And don't use flash, it is number 3 on http://www.useit.com...gnmistakes.html

If you're designing a website for everyone to view (such as people with any type of disability or anyone with slow connection) don't use flash (flash cannot be read by text-to-speach programs). Also if you want you should private message me and I'll give you my email so I can teach you html and xhtml 1.1.

As far as I know thare a lot of tutorials in Internet that can teach you how to become a web designer. But it's only a theoretical material; only when you start to do something with your own hand and surely making mistakes you start to understand how this ot that things have to be done. But the advices are really good.
I sincerily wish you good luck.

I agree, you have to do some hands on trial and error to learn. You learn from your errors (man, that don't work, never do that again).

Advice is great too, that is why I love chat rooms like #web on irc.freenode.org. Quick advice when you need it.
