This course is designed to quickly lead you through the steps of building an HTML website, from creating a new page to building links and tables. Author James Williamson simplifies the coding process, with straightforward steps you can recreate on your own. The course explains the basic structure of an HTML document, shows how to add text and images, and introduces font styling with CSS. James also offers a bonus design challenge at the end of each chapter, where he asks you to think of a solution before offering his own.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a disc, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Exercise files for this title are arranged by chapter and are located in folders that are named based on the movie number they represent. Since each exercise is self-contained, you'll want to work with these folders individually. I recommend copying the entire Exercise Files directory to the desktop and then working on the files from the appropriate folder.
I'll call out the location of the exercise files for each movie, and you should see a brief overlay that will also tell you where to find those exercise files. This course focuses on learning HTML and not only one authoring tool; as such it doesn't matter which authoring tool you use. The only other tool that you'll need is a browser to preview your completed exercise in. I recommend using Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, or Internet Explorer versions 9 and above.
You'll probably notice that I'll use a mixture of these browsers as I preview pages. This is a great habit to get into, as you'll want to a preview your pages in as many browsers as you can to make sure they work across multiple browsers.
