Last night you should have completed a number of tasks that need to be done before you can get started learning HTML and creating a basic Web page this morning. These tasks include:
Reading about what HTML (HyperText Markup Language), a markup language, and hypertext are.
Choosing the text editor you will be using.
Choosing the Web browser you will be using to preview and debug the Web page examples you will be creating.
Downloading and extracting the example files.
If you have yet to complete any of these tasks, return to the Friday Evening session, "Getting Started," and follow the instructions provided in the appropriate section.
This session is designed to take one to two hours to complete, on average. Feel free, however, to take as much time as you need to complete it. Everyone has a different learning style, so go at your own speed and don't feel rushed to complete a session. Even if you only complete the first two sessions this weekend, you will have learned enough HTML to be able to start creating your own fully functional Web pages. All of the other sessions are optional, in other words. Remember, it is not how fast you get to the finish line that matters, but how much you have learned along the way.
