Learn and Apply HTML Course

Here is the Learn and Apply HTML Course, at Utah State University. These HTML course lessons are designed in a way that beginners can move onto advanced as and when they finish the course. The HTML course provides learning units on how the Internet works, how to use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to publish web pages and how to make websites accessible to visitors with hearing, vision or motor disabilities. It also covers functions like inserting multimedia elements and graphics onto websites, understanding JavaScript and using scripts on your website. These HTML lessons are well structured and the related files can be downloaded here. Also, here is a nice page form the course site that describes all of the HTML tags. I recommend to use the pdf format of these HTML tutorial lessons because they contain the resource links to learn more about the topic being discussed. A portion of the book used in this course is available on google (Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML and XHTML in 21 Days).
