HTML: The Programming Language for the Web
Through the Rice University Technology Education Center (RTEC).
Late Summer 2003

Learning the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the first step toward writing and publishing documents on the Web. Web developers who use WYSIWYG editors often rely on HTML to make improvements, optimize their pages, and address the shortcomings of such editing software. In this course, participants will learn to write HTML code from scratch and will be introduced to HomeSite, the text editor of choice for Web page creation. This hands-on course will combine lecture and computer lab work. Individuals will have the opportunity to create basic Web pages and publish them on the Web.
