I am new to making apps, and am new to programming in general. I am wondering how can I make an app that works with OS5, 6 and 7 with WebWorks, can I use HTML 5, or do I use HTML 4? I can't find anything about HTML 4 and WebWorks, so I am lost about how to do this. Must I use Java instead of WebWorks to do this? Also, what languages will I need to learn to be able to make an app with WebWorks?

Hi, what kind of application do you want to do? For example, you should use html4 if you want to do your application OS5 compatible. It is because of the rendering engine of the browser, You can add some simple effects, but not as much as in html5 (in OS6 and OS7) although some effects you can find in some JS Frameworks (for example Dojo mobile or jquery mobile) are sluggish.
If you want to check it out some examples go here: https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Samples/tre

Its important to remember that the term HTML5 is largely marketting. It is in no way a complete spec and won't be for some time.
Ultimately the answer, as devoldmx implies really depends on what you want to do. Some HTML5 features have been backported to 5.0 (HTML5 datastorage, HTML5 WebWorkers and XHR reqestst). Some things that have been yet to be standardized are also there in the form of webworks APIs (PIM, Contacts, Camera, etc.)
For the most part, webworks apps can be made to be compatible from 5.0-playbook, but you will always see increasing performance and capabilities in newer OSes.
