Fast Track to HTML and CSS
Love it or hate it, Hypertext Markup Language or HTML, is what all web pages are made of. It is what gives structure to content on the web. But on its own, it is pretty much insufficient, so learning Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) comes with it. With CSS, web designers have more control over how their pages appear. They can define the typography, color, and layout of web pages more efficiently and with greater creative options than classic HTML.
Fast Track to HTML and CSS is a three-day, basic course that provides students with the knowledge and hands-on practice needed to develop static web sites. With carefully designed exercises, students learn how to write effective HTML and style their pages with CSS.
Note: This course covers HTML5 and CSS3.

Frequently Asked Question: What is the difference between this course and Adobe Dreamweaver CS6: Website Development?
Answer: Dreamweaver CS6: Website Development focuses on the tool, the software itself, and how one can take advantage of it to develop web sites. This course, Fast Track to HTML and CSS, gives greater emphasis on the languages. The premise is: as long as you know these languages inside and out, it doesn’t really matter which software you use.
Who should attend
This course is for web designers and developers who want to:
- Format text in ways that can't be done using HTML alone
- Keep the look of pages consistent throughout the site
- Keep content separate from presentation
- Create web pages that load faster
- Build sites with web standards
To gain the most from the class, you should already have:
- Familiarity with a Windows (or Mac) environment.
- Familiarity with web terminology, (such as those covered in PCCI's Web Design Fundamentals seminar).
