Basic Web Development

Introduction

Web development is getting easier and easier. Now you can create pages without worrying too much about HTML by using WYSIWG (What You See Is What You Get) programs like Claris HomePage. Still, it helps to have a basic understanding of what's under the hood for those cases in which the editor doesn't do what you expect. In this session, we'll include a gentle introduction to HTML.
