IN923 - Web Design with HTML and CSS, Level 2

HTML5 is the latest generation of markup languages used to create content for the web. It is also used as a programming language for mobile (smartphone and tablet) application development. When people say "HTML5," they typically mean not only the latest version of HTML, but also CSS, JavaScript®, and various markup languages used to represent other kinds of web content, such as SVG (graphics) and MathML (mathematical formulas).

Web browsers, which display content coded in these languages, have evolved rapidly over the last few years. This course focuses on the new and advanced features of HTML5, covering how to create HTML5 and CSS3 markup that will work well on the widest possible variety of web browsers, mobile devices, and machine readers, such as search engine web crawlers. The course also demonstrates how to use advanced HTML5 multimedia features such as video, audio, and animation.
