Web design essentials for Digital Marketing. HTML & CSS introductory topics:
HTML & CSS Essentials is a part-time certificate of complition course designed to give students a foundation in the principles of web development. This program is taught over 6 - 8 weeks in the day or evenings, and is designed to teach students about the fundamental building blocks of modern websites.
One of HTML's main jobs is to give text meaning (also known as semantics), so that the browser knows how to display it correctly. This course looks at how to use HTML to break a block of text up into a structure of headings and paragraphs, add emphasis/importance to words, create lists, and more.

Covers the absolute basics of HTML, to get you started — we define elements, attributes, and all the other important terms you may have heard, and where they fit in to the language. We also show how an HTML element is structured, how a typical HTML page is structured, and explain other important basic language features. Along the way, we'll have a play with some HTML, to get you interested!
The head of an HTML document is the part that is not displayed in the web browser when the page is loaded. It contains information such as the page , links to CSS (if you want to style your HTML content with CSS), links to custom favicons, and metadata (which is data about the HTML, such as who wrote it, and important keywords that describe the document.)

Hyperlinks are really important — they are what makes the web a web. This article shows the syntax required to make a link, and discusses link best practices.
There are many other elements in HTML for formatting text, which we didn't get to in the HTML text fundamentals article. The elements in here are less well-known, but still useful to know about. In here you'll learn about marking up quotations, description lists, computer code and other related text, subscript and superscript, contact information, and more.
As well as defining individual parts of your page (such as "a paragraph" or "an image"), HTML is also used to define areas of your website (such as "the header", "the navigation menu", "the main content column".) This article looks into how to plan a basic website structure, and write the HTML to represent this structure.
Writing HTML is fine, but what if something is going wrong, and you can't work out where the error in the code is? This article will introduce you to some tools that can help you.
