Description

The book is an introduction to the basic principles of web design, and also serves as a curriculum guide for teachers developing a course in the basics of HTML and CSS. Readers will work through a semester project (covering 9 separate assignments), a midterm project (call-to-action site), and a final project (a website portfolio). Students will learn about HTML semantics, structure, and validation and how to separate content from design using CSS.
