No it is not necessary. You can build beautiful pages with just HTML and CSS. However if you want to have more advanced user interactions with your webpage (like games or form processing) then you will need js.

I think the Question should be "For Learning JavaScript is it necessary to have knowledge about HTML" But, the Answer is NO

Muvedini Js is only the 3rd OPTIONAL step: a web designer doesn't need to know javascript (even if it could be a plus, programing require totally different skills than designing ^^)

Piyush Jaisinghani you could add some JS simple dynamic functionalities with quite no knowledge of JS (as Sheepsmeh), but anyway, you could also do interresting interactivity/animations with only pure Html/Css ^^ https://code.sololearn.com/WJLRSsJL2ZyM/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/WtYAZZfOlIoJ/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/Wjry59v8OXnv/?ref=app https://code.sololearn.com/WxWFo7C8KNNV/?ref=app The last one below is the evolution of the pure Html/Css slider (carroussel) but with some js (not as simple as it could seems, because among others non-essentials enhancements -- if js disabled or not available, the base version still works -- handle swipe gesture ^^): https://code.sololearn.com/WV5yE2En8S84/?ref=app

If you want to make yourself an expert developer, you should learn it obviously. Besides, you have to learn some other things such as html, css, bootstrap, jquery etc..

Muvedini you didn't, but the OP doesn't ask for what to learn after Html but if it's required to know JS to learn Html: the answer is no because that's not mandatory to learn to design Html ;)

No. Good luck with learning HTML. It shouldn’t take long to learn. You may want to learn what JS and what it is about and history of web browser.

Sheepsmeh :D I had the curiosity to explore your public code to see what you're able to do without js... but all of them (excluding one, but there may be some hidden js as it handle iframes and external content ;P) have some js... However, if it surprise me at first, looking from nearest doesn't invalidate your answer, maybe even conversely ^^ It was more right to say you have almost no JS knowledge, but that prove also that even with quite no JS skills we could add some interactivity to a html/css design without deep diving in learning it ;)

In some cases. I suggest you after finishing HTML course to start learning CSS, and after that JavaScript. Just my opinion.
