HTML and XHTML Tutorial

Here is a good HTML and XHTML Tutorial, from State University of New York-Albany. The following is from this tutorial’s introduction:

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) and XHTML (Extensible Hyper Text Markup Language) are the markup language from which all Web pages are built. Although there are new types of technology and coding options, including PHP, ASP, XML and others, traditional markup language is the place where “all things Web” starts. Some Web editing software publishers claim that it is not necessary to know HTML if you use their programs to build Web pages. However, this is rarely the case. In almost every instance at least some knowledge of HTML and XHTML is helpful.

In this tutorial we will guide you through the basics of writing HTML/XHTML code. It is important to realize that there is no better way to learn and understand the code than to actually write and use it. This tutorial will get you started on your first steps toward becoming knowledgeable about the code. You may download a printable copy of this HTML tutorial here in pdf format (43 pages, 1.08mb). You may expect this tutorial to take about 45 mintues to 1 hour if you work through it quickly. To fully explore it will take 1 hour to 1 1 1/2 hour.
