Subject Title
Web Design II

Subject Description
Cascading style sheets allow HTML authors to create consistent looking web pages, and helps keep the actual HTML markup clean and uncluttered. As well, by using more advanced cascading style sheet functionality, you can add some interesting and useful effects to web pages. During the first part of this course you will use cascading stylesheets exclusively to format and add effects to your web pages.
As well, we will take a look at XML. This much talked about markup language is gaining popularity in documentation for the ability to store information in a meaningful way, and the ability to re-use this information.
This course will take a hands-on approach to web page construction and design and XML authoring. Each lesson will be provided as an HTML document for viewing on web browsers. Relevant examples and links will be included in each lesson. As well, a short in-class assignment in each class will give students the opportunity to try each of the concepts discussed, while ensuring they know the basics.

Pre-requisite: TCN706
