  • Welcome

    - Hi, I'm James Williamson, Senior Author at, and I want to welcome you to HTML Essential Training. In this course, you'll take an in-depth look at HTML, and learn its syntax and semantics, all while focusing on some of the best practices to use when writing and editing HTML. We'll start by exploring what HTML is, and examining its basic syntax. Next, we'll move on to exploring basic document structure, how to properly section pages, and how to use HTML to format page content. After that, we'll explore how to proper create links and lists. Finally, we'll examine how HTML works together with CSS and JavaScript to create finished websites, and discuss what your next step should be as you continue to learn HTML. If you're somewhat intimidated by learning HTML, don't be. I can't wait to show you how easy is is to begin writing HTML and how quickly that you're going to be authoring and editing your own HTML pages. If that sounds great to you, then let's get started.
