thanks alot for you ansewers but i just wanted to do it as a hobby. Lol they really helped though. I bought at cheap luttle book by Mike Mcgrath called " C++ programing in easy steps" its probebly junk though. In the post wayy up html goodies was mensioned. Yeah it is a web desighning standards books and its the best one out there. Most of the material in the book can be found on www.htmlgoodies.com
Its a really great book if you are starting out html and even if you know it its a great refence.
If its just a hobby I would start with Python and then Java.
"Python Programming: For the absolute beginner" Premier press by Micheal Dawson.
By the time you finish the book you have programmed "Asteroids" and have the skill to do much more. Its also a great kick start into OOP.
Manta (Manta is a noob as well at programming - be advised)
