    I want to learn web design. Should I skip to CSS or learn HTML first.

    You should know and understand HTML before you can utilize CSS as it I'd meant to be used.

    HTML is the basic structure of how browsers display content. CSS is a way to display it better, more efficiently. Skip the HTML section on tables, as CSS can completely replace that portion for the most part. You may eventually need to know tables for tabular data, but from a layout aspect, learn to use CSS as a presentation model.

    They're more or less integrated if you're learning them properly. If you're going to learn how to do tableless layouts (as Webzarus suggested), you're going to eventually want to style the layouts, and that's where CSS comes into play.

    So I say learn 'em both at once.

    Game hit the nail on the head. When used properly, the 2 are so deeply intertwined that you really can't do much without both. Without CSS, a webpage should look like a single column made mostly of text that looks a bit like an outline.

    If you want to see examples of what Ron is talking about (the page looking like an outline), occasionally people will host CSS Naked days where people will remove their CSS and show the page in pure HTML. Not sure when the next CSS Naked day is though...I usually don't participate because I think the whole idea is kind of goofy.

    Another way you can look at this is to use the Web Developer toolbar for Firefox or Chrome. They allow you to disable CSS.

    Learn HTML. Make the site you want. If you can't, then look to CSS/CSS3/HTML5 for additional tools.
