    To tell u the difference, first tell me the similarity between two. These two are different from each other,

    Java is a full fledged object oriented programming language, whereas html is only a markup language.

    We embedd one or two tags <applet> of html into our java applets as they run in a web browser.

    Html just gives u a constant page and u cant do much without the help of scripting, dhtml and serverside scripting like asp/jsp.

    Html is very easy to learn. I am not saying java is difficult but it is good if u know c++ in advance, as java follows lot of syntax similarity with c++.

    I wouldn't call HTML programming, but back to your quesiton. HTML is for coding web pages and is completely different to C++ and Java. All 3 work on all operating systems (certainly not just windows), but Java is basically the same on all platforms, where C++ may require some minor changes unless your using some heavily Operating System (windows/mac/linux) libraries. C++ is more low-level then Java, which means it is faster than Java, but it will take you longer to write programs. This is because Java does a lot of work for you in the background which slows it down but saves you time. PHP is a complement to HTML, by that I mean PHP is used to create HTML and is not a replacement to HTML.

    Java is an application language whereas HTML is a JIT(just-in-time) markup language. Java applets are precompiled to protect their source code while javascripts are formatted much in the same way as HTML. Both are very easy to learn. You can get a wealth of reference info for these and many other web languages at
