Technical skills of an Interaction Designer

Hi all,
as Interaction Designer I think it's a foundamental matter to have a deep knowledge of  "how it works behind the scenes" what we design for people to use.

The question is: which language (HTML, Java, Javascript, DHTML...) do you think an Interaction Designer should be fluent in and at which level?

Thanks,

Silvia

accessibility challenges, and cause people to miss information.
