This course is designed for those already familiar with the basics of HTML or have coding experience with older versions of HTML.

Recent mark up techniques see a move away from HTML towards XHTML and this course focuses on developing structured XHTML web pages while keeping presentation and function completely separate.

You will explore the practicalities of building sophisticated sites in a browser and platform independent manner, learn the advantages gained from a standards compliant approach and focus on working with style sheets to deliver layout and design. This is a two day hands-on course utilising a range of practical real-world exercises. The content of this course is constantly revised to take advantage of new web developments.
