Yes. The keyboarding skills employed in writing HTML tags can easily be tranfered to writing in a programming language, such as C++.

What? HTML is nothing like C++. About the only thing you are going to get out of HTML that you can use in C++ is the fact that you have to use brackets <> and learning to type faster. Also, get used to commenting your files because it will definitely help.

Well, I am going to practice C++ in my spare time but my job is requireing me to go to classes for HTML. So I was wondering how enthusiastic I should be about learning HTML because I really want to understand those C++ teaching books better. (I think, at the rate I'm learning it, what I realy need is a "C++ for Dummies" book.)

HTML isn''t a programming language. It''s a set of commands that show how a web page should look, that''s all. Programming languages like C and C++ and javascript all have a couple of similar things that HTML does not have:
- the ability to process stuff, to do math
- variables
- functions (and if it''s an object oriented language, classes)
- logic (if statements, while loops, for loops, etc.)

HTML is in no way what so ever a programming language, and it won''t really help you do any real programming. It is very useful to know though. Once you become a rich programmer, you''ll need a website to show off your work, right?

If your web design class teaches more than HTML (like, javascript or Perl or PHP, for example), then it''ll help a whole lot with learning C++.
