I started learning HTML a few weeks ago but I'm confused on what is a good language to start with for web development. I would like to develop web applications and websites somewhat like Twitter. What's a good programming language to start with? Something very easy for beginners like myself. I've been doing Google searches but everyone is saying different things so I don't know what to do. Also, what is a good application for the recommended language? Dreamweaver?

If you're not familiar with HTML, and CSS I'd suggest learning thoughs first before getting into PHP, Ajax, JQuery, etc: As HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is BASIC as hell, and CSS (Cascating Style Sheets) is mainly for positioning, and rollovers, but you can make a nice menubar with it too, but you gotta understand HTML before you can make a menubar like My Website's (I didn't design the web layout)
I recommend coding in a text editor instead of using Dreamweaver or it's free alternative Kompozer, because it's easier to remember, and it'll keep your mind sharp, plus you won't be filling your HD with another program.
