HTML for beginners

HTML for beginners


Why HTML for beginners?

Every webpage you look at is written in a language called HTML (HyperText Markup Language). You can think of HTML as the skeleton that gives every webpage structure. In this course, we'll use HTML to add paragraphs, headings, images and links to a webpage.

HTML for beginners is designed for the student with little to no working knowledge of creating HTML files by hand. If you're looking to learn HTML from scratch or move beyond using a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing tool, this is the class for you. Students will be introduced to the structure of HTML documents, good markup techniques, and the concept of validation. Students will be required to use a plain text editor to write HTML and use an FTP program to upload the pages to the Internet. Functional topics will include text formatting, using lists, tables, and a brief foray into CSS.
