HTML/CSS is extremely easy unless you care about how the web site looks or whether or not it has bells and whistles.
Should you know all the ins and outs of jQuery, MooTools, etc.? No, you probably don't need to go that far.
Should you understand how to make a very basic web page (html, head, /head, body, /body, /html, js and css includes, id's and classes, what a div is, what a table is, etc.)? These things are incredibly easy to learn. You could learn all of that stuff in a week, and you might be considered retarded if you don't know them, so I'd say yes. Similarly, if someone mentions SQL, IIS, SSL, etc., you should know what those are, even if you don't know how to use them.
