You will need knowledge of HTML, javascript and a server side coding language.

There are many to choose from, but most common are PHP or ASP.NET.

Depending on the language you choose, you will need different software. As for PHP you can easily do this in notepad, but as for asp.net you will need an IDE like Visual Studio (or visual web developer which is the free version).

I could be more specific if you are a little more specific in what you want. e.g. basic webpages for yourself, becomming a professional, making basic websites or entire applications?

As for your chosen language, I can only say good choice. I have coded in many languages (about 10 or so) and I find asp.net very challenging but mostly very powerfull.

Before starting anything though you would need to understand HTML first as this is the basic for anything you will be creating. I do not know any good books as I learned HTML years ago and there are things that have changed along the way.

Once you know HTML it's a good idea to get a basic idea of what javascript is about. You will need javascript for client based scripting. Not just to ease on server load but also to create a more dynamic webpage for your visitors.

Once you have that under control I would start looking into ASP.NET. Personally I have used a book  in Dutch so that won't help you very much. When you check for a good book make sure it is about .net 2.0 or 3.5. There are huge differences between version 1.0 and 2.0+. A good start might be 'ASP.net for dummies' or 'learn ASP.net 21 days'. Once you have those basics it's very easy to figure out how the more advanced stuff works (even without a book).

Hope this gets you started. Happy coding :)
