Overview

Great HTML: Level 1 will teach you the basics of HTML, from simply textual markup to document headers, metadata, and document type declarations. By the time you're through these lessons, you'll be building well-structured web pages, and building them well.

Throughout the course, you'll progressively learn to structure your pages correctly, and mark them up in a way that makes sense and has semantic value. Whether it's a list within a list, a complicated set of page divs, or just some text that needs to flow across multiple columns, you'll not just write HTML, you'll understand how to structure your page.

When you buy Great HTML: Level 1, you get access to an entire video library of lessons-including lessons that aren't available yet! Here's the scoop: we're continually adding new sections in Level 1 that take you further into HTML. We're also updating existing lessons and creating new ones in response to your questions, along with special "challenge lessons" that will test your skills. All of this is yours with Great HTML: Level 1.

This video follows my own course outline, except it covers more (I hold back from HTML5 at this time).  But, it's a great starting point.  Clear and concise.
