Course description


This course was developed primarily for Internet Explorer 5.0 for Windows and Netscape Navigator 4.7 for Windows. Other versions of these browsers might lead to different results than indicated in the task observations. The course was also tested using Internet Explorer 5 and Netscape Navigator 4.6 for the Macintosh. Where necessary, support issues for certain browsers are mentioned in task steps or in notes along the margins of relevant tasks.

This course is meant to provide you with the tools to create your own HTML documents. The sample files are not necessarily intended as design suggestions or principles. The course files are meant to provide the student with solutions that are easy to grasp, and to a certain extent, represent realistic applications. The concepts and tasks in this book are designed for sequential completion. Each topic builds on previous experience, so it makes sense to complete the tasks in the order they appear. You might want to skip certain tasks if you are already familiar with the material, but in some cases, this might lead to different results than you'll see in the screenshots throughout the book.

Some of the files for this course have "solution files" that you can use to check your work if you're not sure how to proceed in a task. These files begin with x, followed by the name of the file they're associated with.
