Web student

How do the acronyms of web design become websites? HTML, xHTML, CSS, PHP, div, ul, swf, li, and dozens more combine, often under the protective cover of software applications like Dreamweaver, to make the web interfaces we see every day. In this class we digest this alphabet soup with a particular focus on the two most important acronyms: HTML and CSS.

Even though web design software has made it easier to generate the code underlying all websites, it doesn't make the code any less necessary to understand. So, we'll get you through what we sometimes call "structured gibberish" and make a simple website that we can be proud of—and understand!
