Welcome Lady_Aleena,
I think you will find perl to be a great first language to learn. I too pretty much backed my way into consistent programming from an HTML (and JavaScript) background. I am not sure if you mean W3C or the W3schools site but thats not important. The important part is getting some grokable material to foster your nascent perl career.

The Beginning Perl Wiki would be my suggestion.

As Fletch mentioned, disregarding tone, learning the basics (for-loops, if-elses, etc) first will shallow out the learning curve a great deal. Of course the Monastery is always open. So long as you show what you tried (distilled case, don't just paste every line :), what you found and what you would like to have happen, you will get an answer.
So again, Welcome and good luck.
