I don't foresee a career focused only on HTML - it will need to be part of a more complete set of skills to provide a true livelihood.

I am not exactly sure what you mean by this question. But perhaps, as tedster, mentioned a more complete skill set would be better if you are looking to do anything like web design as a business. Web designers today (not that I am one of them) need to be able to do a number of things and know a few different languages. IMHO

I don't have any idea but its really good to have HTML knowledge as its not that easy to gain the complete skills of it.

It would be better to take PHP as a career option
In other words, HTML was past & PHP is future
Its also about static versus dynamic, in every battle
PHP wins over HTML, and its better to be with the winner

sorry, that is completely wrong ... html is incredibly easy to learn - put it this way if you don't find html easy then you will really, really struggle with the more advanced parts of web development.

There is very little to HTML: the DOCTYPE and the head and body sections; the title and metadata in the head section; headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, forms, images and links in the body section, and very little else worth worrying about. The content can be styled using CSS.

The basics of HTML can be mastered in a few days, and the basics of CSS can be mastered in a few weeks.

HTML can be learned fairly quickly; it's just a display language.

PHP integrates with HTML...have you ever built a website before? You need to know both.

Why don't you just stick to the point, the OP question was
"What is the career in HTML?"
I have just suggested him that php is far better then html in terms of career option, even a child can learn html but only a few master php!

I am sticking to the point, the point being that any career in web design begins with HTML and then branches into other optional languages.

I have to ask, precisely what do you base this on? When you output your PHP, what are you feeding the browser? Every technology has it's place, and I've seen a crapload of invalid (X)HTML output by "PHP masters." I'm glad they keep doing it though, it keeps me in a job.
