HTML Level 1 (Basic)

Students will learn how to use good HTML coding practices to create Web pages that work, and will continue to work in the ever-changing world of Web development. Many courses teach students how to create Web documents that work in class, but don€(TM)t consider the direction that Web authoring is going. In HTML 4.01: Web Authoring Level 1, students learn concepts and do tasks that foster the transition from HTML to the most recent XML-based Web authoring language recommendation, XHTML 1.0, which will become the future standard. The theory behind this is to learn HTML this way now, so that there will be a minimal learning curve when the time comes to transition to XHTML.

The students will also have the benefit of being introduced to the power and control of Cascading Style Sheets, which is a complementary technology to HTML that is changing the face of Web authoring.
