    Hi, i searched, maybe not good enough... but here is a simple and concise question:

    I know CSS and HTMl very well. I want to start developing shopping cart's, rather than using developers. I know that there are multiple languages for this and I narrowed it down to two:
    1. PHP
    2. ASP
    I realize PHP is cheaper (free), but it seems to me that pages designed in ASP run faster, but i'm not sure.

    Question: which language would you recommed learning?

    I voted PHP only because there are more free/shareware scripts available,
    and more support available. For someone starting out, help is the key asset.

    You can pop into many different forums and find tons of experience with
    X-Cart, CubeCart ... on and on.

    hmm... interesting... i agree though, i started learning CSS a month ago and help was invaluable. Even though CSS is much much easier than PHP! I think that settles it, i'm just going to go the PHP route... any recommended readings that you guys know of? I was even thinking of signing up for a course at a college... just to be professionally trained you know...

    Hmm, I actually think PHP is easier than CSS, because if you have mistakes, it's probably in your logic or syntax. Whereas with CSS, if you make a mistake, it's probably because of some weird side effect of some property that you set, and it can be way too hard to find what's causing the mistake.

    PHP is a scripting language, CSS is a style sheet markup for HTML.

    You program in PHP, not in CSS.
