Hiya

I've already learn't html and css for website design and I would like to know if Javascript & Ajax is the next thing up from html or should I be considering something else before delving into the Javascript and Ajax world.

If it helps the book which i own is JavaScript and Ajax for the Web

Thanks

JavaScript and Ajax are good tools to learn, but you might want to go with something like PHP which is a server-side scripting language. It gives you more dynamic web pages than JavaScript/Ajax which is client-side scripting languages.

If your site uses outdated code, like tables or the HTML 4.01 doctype coding and deprecated tags, you might want to redo your site to HTML 5 and CSS 3. Would be worthwhile to do so. If you already use XHTML 1.0 strict coding, then there's no need unless you want to recode some pages using the terrific new CSS 3 properties.

Forget the fact they offer "FREE Website Builder". They ALL do. Even the free hosting sites. :) Better to use a FREE pro web builder:

Web Editors (Many Free):

Basic text editors: http://en.wikipedia....ic_text_editors
Comparison of HTML editors: http://en.wikipedia....of_HTML_editors

Not sure how much "£4.10 inc VAT per month" is in U.S. dollars. My hosting was paid for 3-years and it costs $3.95 per month. No taxes.See New Clients. I don't know if you want a server in the U.K. only either. If so, I'm not that familiar with them, but you can compare mine against what you would be getting.

$6.20 is about the average. Some or less, some more, but you always have to look at what the full package is offering.

Are you previewing the PHP on your computer? If so, you have to install a complete package like XAMPP.
