The objective of this course is to teach you all aspects of HMTL and XHTML. The course will teach you the fundamental of CSS - Cascading Style Sheets, and show you how to apply those to your web pages. We will learn how to separate web content from web formatting and how to follow all the XHTML standards to create professional looking and maintainable web sites. The course will also teach you how to use XSLT to format and deliver XML content to the web. The class is very hands-on, and will allow ample time in the classroom to try out new features discussed in class.
