- Like all The Intellect website design training courses, it teaches best practice in vendor-neutral, standards-compliant, cross-platform, and completely transferable skills,
- i.e. you will get real XHTML training and not merely one company’s take on it.
- On completion of this course, students should be able to produce standards-compliant website design which works with any of the well-known packages in this field,
- e.g., Dreamweaver, MS FrontPage, GoLive, IIS, Apache, ColdFusion, WebSphere, Lotus Domino, Microsoft Windows, Unix, Linux, .Net, SunOne, etc.
- The course is intended for communications, marketing and design professionals who need to develop high-quality World Wide Web pages without external help.
- To an even greater extent than normal, this web site design course is delivered through hands-on exercises, backed up by expert tuition in fundamental principles and best XHTML coding practice.
- Whenever possible, students use hand XHTML coding techniques to learn the fundamentals which underpin proprietary web page editors like Dreamweaver, GoLive and FrontPage.
- Most business-people recognise the commercial importance of the Internet, but few realize how easy it is to learn the skills required to produce a basic Web presence
- This practical workshop introduces the basic elements of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and its XML-compatible variant, XHTML,
- i.e., the standards which determine the structure and use of web pages.
- Unlike most web site design training courses, this one is not locked-in to any particular vendor’s web browser, web server, application server, or operating system.
