HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) —and more specifically HTML5— is a standard language designed for creating pages and sites for the World Wide Web. A sound knowledge of the syntax and semantics of HTML is crucial when building and maintaining more complex websites.

Apart from HTML "tags", a web page may also contain style indications in the form of CSS (cascading style sheets), and ingredients which make the page more interactive: clickable elements, forms, and JavaScript functions.

At course completion the participant will have acquired a sound insight in the structural elements of HTML documents and will be able to create a website using HTML and CSS.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please let us know.
