Nice introduction. One thing that I feel would help, though, is a bare-bones explanation of the difference between HTML and XHTML. Perhaps this is covered in later videos in this series, but I feel that something like that would be very useful up front so that viewers can decide whether or not they want to dive deeper, rather than being forced to go deeper to find that information.

Your video has been edited. This is an automatic post by ShowMeDo.

Not playing for me. The second and last ones tested, and worked fine though.

Very nice breakdown. Exactly right for a first introduction to (x)html.

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
