Year and model of Honda, please?
The resources at http://home.earthlink.net/~honda.lioness/id9.html for repair manuals have good diagrams to help with this.
I took off my 91 Civic's inner door panel and a friend's '99 inner door panel last year without too much trouble. An inner plastic seal is present, and one needs to be gentle with it to prevent tearing.

And even if it does tear, it's not a disaster. http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/doorseal/index.html

As the others say, model and year are crucial. (It is a Honda?)
Generally, the door panel is pried away from the metal, starting at the bottom. Running a butter knife or thin pry bar around the edge will reveal where the keepers are. Twist the knife or pry bar to pop the keepers out of the metal part of the door, twisting so the edge nearest the keeper forces the panel outward. Look for screw heads (may be covered by camouflage buttons) in the arm rest and door handle/latch release areas. When everything is loose, the panel probably lifts upward. When we know the model and year - also if 2 or 4 door - somebody will have details, I'm sure.
Once you get the panel loose or off, the window will still be down. For a quick patch job you will need to remove the (usually) two screws that hold the regulator - the part that moves the window up and down - from the bottom of the glass. Push the glass all the way up and have somebody hold it there while you wrap duct tape around the channels at each edge of the glass so the glass can't come back down.
