    It depends on what you mean by "learn"...

    HTML was created in order to be easy to use so the entry point is very low. You should get a basic grasp within a week...

    But to be a master HTML and CSS user... well that's something that takes years ;)

    "learn"? we need to learn as long as we can to learn
    about this skill (css and html), for the basic, you just need to learn its in 1-2 days if you can do that
    and for the expert, you will need more time with more experience, so you just need Learn - Do it - Learn - Do it as long as you can

    The day you think you're done learning is the day you just gave up on the technology as a whole. You're never done learning. Start whenever you want, but you will never be done.

    HTML and CSS is so so so so SO easy and it really takes few moments to learn. However sometimes it takes few moment to make a use of this knowledge.

    well i feel if you are learning something .....it has no specific time , and moreover "learn " it will never stop ...every time you will get a new things (even if you are expert) but yes to get familiar with HTML just a one is enough just read a pdf or go for tutorial at youteamguide.blogspot.com...

    enjoy...!!!

    There is no better way to learn than to just open a blank document and start creating <div> tags and styles. Layout what you want on paper then try to duplicate that in your page with ids and classes. You will pick it up faster than you think :) Additionally you could take a free css template read through the code and restyle everything, this will give you a great understanding of how it is all working.

    It depends - none can tell you how long you'll have to practise in order to know both HTML and CSS fully, all I know is that HTML can be both basic and a bit more advanced (xHTML)..
    1. Try out basic HTML
    2. Try out basic CSS
    3. Understand the basics of both languages fully
    4. Continue with HTML and CSS, and dive deeper into both languages and understand how they interact with each other
    5.
    5.1 Disconnect from the Internet
    5.2 Make a scetch of a website you want to make
    5.3 Make it - without using online tutorials. If you're able to make it, then you're good to go!

    For HTML and CSS Two to three months are more than enough but if in case you want to get a bit advanced such as jQuery, javascript It may require time

    Knowing it will not take long but mastering will take you months. I would like you to redirect you to a tutorial where you can learn it free of cost and the videos are high in quality. Just search you tube with the new boston channel. Look for XHTML and CSS tutorial. He has done a great job.

    To be honest. If you want to learn this then you shouldn't care about time and so on. Trust me your always learning. I've been coding in html and css for 8 years. I'm still googling the simplest of things at times (haven't got the greatest memory mind). Though as these two scripting languages evolve (as you can imagine they have quite a bit over 8 years) means you will always be learning. You can't stick a time frame on it. Maybe you should rephrase the question to how long will it take until i can make a website.

    To get the basics a matter of a few days but to truely understand CSS and make best use of it is another matter altogether, I have seen guys who have been doing web design for years and year producing terrible code still using tables for main layout, frames, javascript menus, using tables for contact forms, still using br tags instead of css margins ect ect the list goes on and on.

    Be prepared to be still learning aslong as your are working with HTML/XHTML and CSS, you should always be looking for better ways to do stuff dont just say to your self well that does the job that will do as its often just not good enough to be honest.
