HTML5 Basics

Most of this should be review since you've already completed the Web Development 101 HTML/CSS Lesson (Right??) but it's a good idea to make sure you've got it covered so you make sure you're starting from a strong base. It's impossible to separate HTML from CSS, so there will be some overlap before we get heavily into the CSS in later sections.

Points to Ponder

  • How is an HTML5 document structured?
  • What are elements/tags?
  • What are element attributes?
  • How do you link to external files?
  • When should you use IDs vs Classes?
  • What attributes are required by image and links for them to be effective and accessible?
  • Where should your CSS live?
