Java is independant of HTML and javascript. You don't need to learn either of those two to understand Java. An understanding of HTML can help you as you start to develop Java applets.

As for javascript, you will want to know HTML to understand its full potential. I am not sure if you can use it independantly of HTML or not as it has been a while since I studied it and really used it. But I would suggest learning HTML as you learn javascript.

There have been a number of people who have asked the same thing.

Basically, if you want to learn to do anything on a website, learn HTML and CSS. From there, you learn what you need to learn in order to accomplish what you are wanting to get done; this will vary with everyone as you might need something for client side or server side, which will affect what you choose.

Why the strong interest in Java? To clarify, in case you didn't know, Java is not javascript.

The most valuable web developers are the ones that have a broad working knowledge of most major web technologies. In an all Linux environment, for example, .NET is virtually useless as you can easily use PHP, Perl, or Ruby on Rails.

So again, it all comes down to what you want to accomplish.
