  • Course description
    Learn to create standards-compliant sites using XHTML and CSS
    Today's professional-standard Web sites are designed using XHTML in conjunction with CSS.
    Sound challenging? Fear not, because learning to write code for the Web has never been easier or more fun. In this six-lesson course, you'll learn to create Web sites—using XHTML to mark up the structure of the document, and CSS to dictate how each page element should look.

    Course lessons are packed with hands-on examples that help you gain skills and confidence step-by-step. You'll begin by mastering the basics of HTML markup and how to follow XHTML 1.0 specifications. Then you'll learn to translate this structure into visual designs that use CSS for typography and positioning. The course wraps up with a look at forms, dynamic content, and JavaScript-enhanced navigation. All course assignments are accomplished with hand-coding.

    This course is designed to provide a foundation in Web standards, the set of "best practices" established by the World Wide Web Consortium, among other organizations that set the standards for Web development. A site that adheres to Web standards makes use of certain designated markup, presentation, and scripting languages (like XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript).

    Learning Web standards helps you build sites that are more accessible, usable, and cross-browser compatible, as well as simpler to build and maintain!
