Order of Skills
In order to become a good web app developer, what order should you learn the following technologies. HTML/XHTML,CSS, Javascript,JSPs & Servlets.
I started with JSPs but find there is a lot of HTML that I don't really know.
Thanks for your response,

You can start with HTML, Servlets, and JSP. If you want to do a lot of client side scripting then try learning java script. If you want to do lot of web designing then try learning CSS. But its better to learn HTML, Servlets, and JSP which are kind of must. Then try to have basic knowledge of java script, and CSS. All the Best :-)

Its up to you really. Different things are appropriate for different uses.

You will need some understanding of html, even if you're not planning on doing much design work. Your web apps will typically spit out html at some point. I'd advise learning xhtml 1.0 strict or xhtml 1.1 - it will get you into various good habits. Have a look at the w3c tutorial site or get a good book and work through that.

CSS is necessary if you'll be doing your own design. Good web pages seperate structure (html) and presentation (css).

JSP and Servlets are tools for getting a server dynamically to generate html, usually in conjunction with a database. So when you get to these you'll be doing "programming proper". If you're using a database you may need to learn a little SQL and how to install and admin your database; you might also want to learn how to configure your webserver properly.

Javascript is a client-side scripting language currently much in vogue because of AJAX. It can make user interaction on the web a bit more like interacting with a traditional program. So, its kind of the icing on the cake, IMO. A lot of people disable javascript, so its always worth making sure that your pages don't rely on it.
