An Algorithmic and Social Introduction to Computer Science (CSC-105 2000S)


Class 04: Lab: HTML

Back to Markup Languages. On to HTML, Experimentation and Reflections.

Held Friday, January 28, 2000

Overview

Today, we continue our discussions of hypertext by visiting a different set of intellectual foundations for hypertext. We then ground our understanding by visiting HTML, the first markup language for the World Wide Web.

Question potentially relevant to today's class: Do you prefer logical or physical markup? Why?

Question relevant to the next class: What does the use of HTML as the language of the World Wide Web say about the Web's accessiblity?
