You can learn JavaScript fundamentals with little knowledge of HTML, but if you intended to learn JS for use in the browser then you will want to also learn more about it (HTML)

A lot of what you will use JS for in the browser is manipulating HTML through the DOM. Or, if you use JS as a back-end language with Node.js, then you might not care to learn as much about HTML.

Thanks, I think a give a try for Javascript, and if I feel like its difficult without the knowledge of the HTML, I will turn back for a while.. :)

Hi! If you have even a basic knowledge it's very good to start right know! Don't be afraid you can!)
