If this was meant to be a serious posting and is not
some very early (or late? ...) 'April Fools Day' thing,
I'd suggest the following:

Forget it. 

Programming the VCS is hard enough for people who have 
no ASM background at all, even if they're _experienced_ 
coders with any other serious programming language.

HTML can't even be considered coming close to a
programming language.

I'd suggest starting with something way simpler 
than the VCS first, like any BASIC language,
to get at least an *idea* of what programming
_means_ first.

Maybe if you'd then get more experience,
probably by learning some
closer-to-the-machine language like C or C++,
you can carefully start to learn 6502 ASM,
best by starting on a 'safe-base' like the C64
or another 'forgiving' machine.

Then, after a learning process of maybe 1-3 years
come back here and try your luck on the VCS.
