Everyone Eats Lunch
Hi, this is Jill Gundersen and in this course we are going to learn basic HTML in order to create a simple web page. I have invited my friend Sally to help throughout the course, Sally. "I'm right here. " This is Sally. Sally, this is our future web developer. "Hello future web developer. " Sally will drop in throughout the course to help out. Sally, let's get started. "Okay Jill! "

Packing a Lunch
"I'm Jill Gundersen and in this module, we will be covering, " Sally, you are not Jill, I'm Jill. I knew I shouldn't have left you alone. This really is Jill Gundersen and in this module we are going to learn about individual HTML tags. "And I'm going to help. " In the previous module we learned about creating a sandwich and how it is just like putting a tag together. So what's for lunch? A lot of sandwiches, or basically a lot of tags. Here is a list of the tags we will learn in this module. As we go over each tag we will also learn the attributes associated with each of them. Just a reminder, that each tag is able to use any of the global attributes. As we code, all HTML tags and attributes should be lower case. This means no capital letters. There is one more thing that we will need to learn. It's the difference between block level elements and inline elements. We will cover this in the next segment.

Lunch Box
Hi, this is Jill Gundersen and in this module we will learn about nesting tags, paths, and a few more general tags used in creating a web page. When you take a lunch to school you normally put the contents of your lunch in a lunch box or a bag, basically any kind of a container that will hold all of the items in your lunch. With HTML, you need to have a container that holds all of the tags together. Our lunch box, or container, will be an actual file that we create. This file can be named anything we want, but the name of the extension on the file needs to be. html. A web browser can only open certain types of files. If we name our web page file with the. html extension, then we can be positive that any web browser will be able to display our web page.

Lunch Menu
Hi, this is Jill Gundersen and in this module we will learn about nesting tags, paths, and a few more general tags used in creating a web page. We have been talking a lot about food in this course. What better way to finish it than by creating an actual lunch menu. In order to create a menu we need to make lists of items. HTML provides a way to create a list of items, but it involves nesting tags. We have already nested some tags in the last two modules, but we will cover the nesting more in depth. We will also be learning a few more common tags used in everyday websites. Later in this module we will also learn about relative paths and absolute paths. "Hey, I know about those. " When we get to that section will you come and help me teach it? "Totally. " Until then, let's learn about nesting tags.
