At a glance

This class presents the core of HTML/XHTML and Cascading Style Sheets to students with no background in computing. It attempts to integrate Design and Coding and to develop a sense of the special qualities of multimedia hypertext writing for publication on the Web. The grading is based on exercises and short projects. The criteria for success on these projects is that they work/can be viewed as intended on Firefox, and are intelligent and good-looking. Oh yes, completed and on time. This is a very hands-on course.

Two or three reasons to take the course:

  1. Liberate yourself from massive blocks of uninterrupted text
  2. Acquire marketable skills. --->
  3. Yet another reason.
  4. To play HTML Tag.
