Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of HTML Essential Training.
If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. Exercise files are arranged by chapter and are located in folders that are named based upon 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 file for each movie and you should see a brief overlay that will also tell you where you can find those files.
This course focuses on learning the essentials of HTML and not on any one authoring tool. As such, it doesn't matter what authoring tool you use. Later, on I'll describe typical HTML editors and give you some suggestions on which ones you should use. The only other tool you'll need is a browser to preview your completed exercise in. I recommend using Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari or Internet Explorer. Indeed, it's not a bad habit to use a mixture of these browsers to preview pages. It's a great habit to get into as you'll want to preview your pages in as many browsers as you can to make sure they work across multiple browsers.
