If you create or edit website content, yet view HTML code as a black art that is beyond your reach, this webinar is for you.

The rudiments of HTML are, in fact, quite simple, and knowing them is invaluable for anyone who creates or edits website content. WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), or visual, editors can be very helpful, but depending on them limits what you can do and can lead you into dark corners.

In this free webinar, Webvanta CEO Michael Slater explains, in an entirely practical way, the essential parts of HTML and why they are important for content editors. No knowledge of HTML or web technology is assumed. Michael is known for his ability to explain technical concepts in ways that anyone can understand.

Topics covered include:

  • What is HTML?: HTML's relationship to CSS and JavaScript
  • The basic tag structure: opening tags and closing tags
  • The essential tags: p, h1, h2, h3
  • Lists: ul, ol, and li
  • Structural elements: div, section, article, etc.
  • Media: images, embedded video

What you'll learn:

In one hour, we can't teach you to create web pages from scratch. But we can teach you how to deal with blocks of HTML content far more effectively than you can without this knowledge.

At the end of this webinar, you'll have a solid grounding in the basics of HTML. You'll be able to read most HTML code, fix common problems, and avoid the traps that WYSIWYG editors can create.
