I am a college student and I am looking for advice from a professional web designer. I want to build my own website. I done some research online and most people are saying that the first step is to learn html/xhtml and then css . However, my dad, an IT professional / computer programmer said html is outdated and easy to hack. He suggested me to learn c#. However when I ask him why, he doesn't want to help because he said I am wasting my time trying to build sites since the web 2.0 bubble already burst.
I am wondering which language and steps you would recommend for a person with no background on web development. Is there a difference between the type of site I want to make? ex. digg/facebook/google/ebay

Thanks a lot. Looking forward for some professional advice.
