Just enough XHTML [ID:759]

a series of video-tutorials by Lucas Holland

In this series I cover the basics of XHTML with an emphasis on their practical application. You will learn enough to get started and build a solid foundation.

Video Tutorials

1. Basic structure of an XHTML document

In this video, I guide you through the basic structure that you will find in most XHTML documents and give you a scaffolding you can use in your XHTML documents.

2. Adding content using the paragraph tag

In this video we add content to our page. To do so we utilise XHTMLs p tag that is used to create paragraphs.

3. Headings

In this video we take a look at headings and how they're implemented in XHTML. Headings are created using the h1, h2, ... , h6 tags.

4. Lists

In this video I show you how to use ordered and unordered lists.

5. Hyperlinks

In this video we take a look at the a tag which is used to create (hyper)links in XHTML.

6. Tables

In this video I demonstrate how to create a simple XHTML table.

7. Embedding Images

In this video we discuss embedding images into XHTML documents. To do that we use the img tag.

8. The <div> and <span> tags

The div and span tags are mostly used in conjunction with CSS. They allow you to divide your page into logical divisions (div) or to group areas of text etc. together (span) and then apply CSS to them to format those areas and divisions. In this video I give you a quick overview.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Lucas
