Welcome to Online Resume Hands-on Training. The purpose of this course is to design an online resume, and so create a webpage in Dreamweaver with a cascading style sheet that demonstrates good typographic design and layout. A vast majority of websites today are essentially text based. Even with the addition of images and rich media, the primary means of communication on the Internet is the written word. What better place to learn CSS typographic principles for the Web and how to control the design and structure of our HTML documents, than in an online resume? To create a resume we'll follow three steps.
First, we'll develop and write our own resume and we'll create three different versions of it. We'll create a text document, a Microsoft Word document, and then a PDF document. Secondly, we'll create a webpage using HTML and finally we'll design the structure, look, and feel of the resume using XHTML in Dreamweaver and link it to an external cascading style sheet using CSS styles, to give the look, format, and layout of our online resume. By the time we are done, you'll have learned how to copy and paste a simple text document into Dreamweaver.
How to format your HTML text with semantic or meaningful markup tags. How to externally linked a cascading style sheet to your webpage and create and apply styles of your own to your XHTML documents using HTML tags, compound selectors, custom classes, and IDs.
