Students will learn how HTML tags control page layout, fonts, links, lists, tables; they will create simple forms to collect information, and use cascading style sheets to change the look and feel of their website. We will also discuss site design and readability, and explore internet resources to continue development of basic skills. (Course uses HTML5 conventions).
