Who should attend:

Session Overview:

This session will help you put the information gained from the previous day's presentation into practice. We will take an MS Word document, use Windows Notepad mark it up in properly in HTML, validate the page and use different elements of CSS to transform the Word document in various ways to demonstrate the power of CSS, and why you no longer need to rely on images to create an attractive - and accessible - web page.

Lab Session Example 1:

  1. Example 1 Lesson Plan, (Microsoft® Word Document)
  2. PhonePolicy.doc - Word version of the text of the first example; it's what the finished HTML document should look like.
