Download Jason Smith's crash course in HTML

Are you learning the basics of creating a Web site? If so, take a look at Jason Smith's crash course in HTML, now available as a TechRepublic download. It could mean the difference between HTML blunder and HTML glory!


Setting up a Web site might sound simple, but it isn’t quite as easy as it seems. In order to create a Web page, you need to know how to write HTML. If you aren’t able to do that, your site will never get off the ground.

HTML, or Hyper Text Markup Language, is used to create a Web site. Among other things, it tells your Web browser what text to display, what images will appear, and what color a table border should be, as well as dictating how everything is laid out. Without HTML, the Internet as we know it today would not exist. The challenge with HTML, however, is that you have to create it using only your brain and a text program, such as Microsoft Notepad.

To help you tackle this imposing task, TechRepublic has collected a series of articles by Jason Smith in a compilation entitled “A crash course in HTML." These articles will help you gain a better understanding of HTML, its purpose, and how it works. After this crash course, and a little imagination, you just might be able to create the Web page of your dreams! You can download the crash course by clicking here.
By now, we all know someone who has created a Web page from scratch, but have you? We want to hear about it! What problems did you encounter while creating the page? Did you learn any handy methods for creating a page? What would you tell other people who are interested in designing a Web page for the first time? Feel free to leave a post below, or send us a note.
