Just some questions came up to me. :P
I work as PHP developer. I started out working as independent contractor, doing work on HTML for $25/hour, and PHP for $35/hour. I've found that those are pretty good figures for this area. I've done AJAX work for $40/hour.
Now a days, I stick to salary, at a company doing work, and it works out to be a little bit more than that per hour.
So, as Wildhoney said, you can get up to $60 an hour, easily. But you don't come out the door swinging for the fences.
What I did: I did some research, tried to find out how much people in my area were charging that had a lot of the same qualifications as I did.
I've made just short of everything... I've created several CMS's, CRM's, business websites (lots of those), small and large community websites, kiosk work. Even created a reality TV Casting solution. Text message campaign work, even created a little app to be ran from localhost to upload and resize images from a rock concert for this community site in Texas.
You can do just short of any and every thing when you're in the web dev business.
