Learning HTML 3.2 systematically
When you know the very basics of HTML in general, a suggested order of studying
HTML 3.2 is the following:
The obligatory structure of a document
The recommended structure of a document.
You may wish to compare this information with
The structure of an HTML 3.2 document
Wilbur - HTML 3.2 pages at
by the Web Design Group.
The basic content should be the same, but
you might prefer WDG's style of
describing things to mine.
- Practise by creating an HTML document with the recommended structure but no
contents so far; store this document under a name like
template.html and use it as the basis for your HTML documents in the
future; create a copy of it, add some plain text into the body and check that
the document is readable using a Web browser.
Fundamental structures in HTML 3.2, with examples
of this document.
Concentrate on studying (and possibly enjoying) the ideas and their
application, not on memorizing technical details.
- Study the
general remarks on the syntax of HTML in
this document. You will need that information when writing HTML.
However, you may at this phase ignore the subsection
- Practise by creating useful HTML documents of your own, using the tags you
have learned so far.
- Browse through the
the list of elements in the table of contents
of this material, to get a picture
of what is available in HTML 3.2, and following the links to get more information
about elements that seem potentially useful to you.
- Then the world is open to further practising and studying.
