What softwares do i need to learn web designing?
You don’t need any additional software to learn HTML, all you need is a browser to check the HTML pages you create and a text editor to write the code for the pages you can write the code in notepad. Even though notepad does the job for us, but I suggest you to download a good html editor that shows html tags in different colors. You can try coffee cup editor or ACE html editor, ACE is a completely free software. You can easily find them by Googling.
Best websites for learning HTML:
W3SCHOOLS is the best website to web designing, every thing is available there. First complete their tutorials on html once you are done with it go for CSS tutorials in w3 schools itself. After completing these tutorials you will get an idea of what each tag does and how to play with them to create funky web pages.When ever you find a good web page check the source of it. You can check the source by right clicking on the page and the selecting view source/page source, if you are using Mozilla you can get the code by pressing Ctr+U.
Do I need to design my website from scratch?
You need not design your website from scratch. There are many open source web designs available on net you can choose any one of them as you base design and then modify them according your needs with the knowledge you got from the HTML and CSS tutorials in W3SCHOOLS. Here are few links to sites that give you open source web templates.
