    Maybe the Khan Academy? (FF, as in for free?)

    Java is a programming language. It's not too 'hard', and is a good intro to JavaScript and C++ which are cousins. Best bet is downloading the Java Development Kit, thinking of some easy programming exercises and setting to: how they operate, variables, functions, classes. Goog!e is your friend towards the right resources in this instance.

    HTML is a markup language for the Internet, CSS is the coding used for display. Version 5 is the current way to control and display webpages. You can (often) right-click and save webpages' source files for the HTML and CSS resources for any webpages that take your fancy.

    Depending on how your son works/learns best, these might be the easiest routes 'in'.

    Personally, if he is 'ok' with the basics of coding, a Wordpress website (or similar) would introduce a learner into CSS.and thereby control of the look. You can delve deep without breaking stuff.

    For coding? It depends how your son learns. For myself, I found (still find!) 'things I need to code in order to solve stuff', and thereby tend towards ActionScript (a sort of JavaScript/Java) whose programming mode I naturally lean towards. Each to their own, I guess.

    Otherwise? Loads of Java help online.

    For example...I play Kerbal Space Program. I've seen online resources that calculate Pork Chop Plots: these determine the most efficient way to get spaceship A from B to C. They're cool. But I wanted to do Grand Tours (a la Voyager) to the outer planets in the game. I know the maths involved (thank you, Wikipedia), I know ActionScript (thank you, former job) so it's an exercise for the grey matter to write some code (in Flash, this instance) to determine the minimal propellant I need to do B to C to D to wherever. Programming is/can-be frustrating, yet fun. Finding a way that enthuses the learner, that promotes learning, is the key.

    All the time.

    What floats your son's boat? Can he see it, later translate it, into a Java application?

    Job done.

    There are also any number of books which serve as excellent tutorials.

    Cool Re: java html

    I'm studying this java with a donut.
    I'm finding it much easier.

    Has he programmed before? My first programming language was BASIC when I was in high school. During that process over several months I learned about writing code per se. I really enjoyed it. After that first step I was able to learn any number of other languages pretty easily.
