Exercise files for this course are available to all lynda.com subscribers. Simply download the exercise files to your computer and place them on the desktop for ease of access. The exercise files are organized by chapter number. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video. You'll see an overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and the name of the exercise file. I have given you the markup for examples in this course. There are no style sheet files and there are no images even though style sheets and images might be called inside of the HTML.
The reason why, is because this course covers markup and semantics. And, I think that the CSS and images can be distracting. Semantics will not change the way the webpage looks. It changes the way that search engines and robots interact with the page. Working with the exercise files can add great value to the training.
