HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a standard language designed for creating pages and sites for the World Wide Web. Although today many simple web sites are created using a graphical productivity tool such as Adobe Dreamweaver, a sound knowledge of the syntax and semantics of HTML remains a requirement for building more sophisticated sites.

At course completion the participant will have acquired a sound insight in the structural elements of HTML documents and will be able to create a website writing HTML.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
