Taking your Web Publisher Pro skills to the next level
By Trimagic Technical Team
The main web reference tool used at Trimagic is an online web site called W3Schools. The W3Schools site provides step-by-step instructions that take you through various web skills and technologies and allows you to practice directly in the browser. W3Schools describes itself as "the largest and most popular web developers resource in the world" and you need no other tools to learn your web skills; not even Notepad!
The first subject you should study at W3Schools is Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). HTML uses markup tags to describe web pages and so is a basic requirement for creating a web site. Using HTML you are able to tell the browser how to format your pages, creating "look and feel", etc. All other web technologies require knowledge of HTML. Why not start learning HTML now!
Once you have have a basic understanding of HTML, the next subject to look at is Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Using CSS allows you to define HTML elements, essentially telling the browser how these elements should be displayed using fonts, colour, etc. This means that you can control the appearance of your HTML easily and in a centralized place. You can start learning CSS from w3schools.com here.
Once you have mastered HTML and CSS, you can start to consider yourself as being pretty web savvy: well done!

I've been looking for some training on xml and see that W3Schools covers this as well. A very timely tip.
