Hi folks,

I've been churning out mostly beginning-level HTML articles; however, it occurred to me that my audience (meaning you!) might be looking for information on more advanced topics. So I'm taking a poll - do you consider yourself a beginning, intermediate or advanced HTML user, and are there any particular HTML topics you're curious about?

Thanks,
Elizabeth

I guess I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate.

I use the basics like bold, italics, links, and images all the time in articles - but don't relly know much about placing things exactly where I want them to go.

It's usually a game of "try it and see" for me.

I really liked your article on CSS, Elizabeth. smile

I would say I'm intermediate, or a little beyond. Not quite "advanced," but definitely past the basics.

Thanks for the feedback. I've just posted an article about a topic near and dear to the hearts of every webmaster and online article writer - namely, how to track webpage performance. Enjoy.

I am intermediate in HTML. I like it's ease of use. I generally use it inside the posts/articles. I think now the time is changed and php and joomla are mostly used for web design.

Very much a beginner - help!

I am finding the articles helpful, and am trying to work my way up but I definitely feel challenged and often frustrated because this is something I just don't easily understand.

I do understand how others would want further information. I know this original post was started a while back. It looks as though you are providing very good information on this site.

I had a little help today and figured out the problem with a web page I was putting together. I had laid out a web page using Word and transferred elements to Front Page. The coding for the Word format transferred along with the text etc. and interfered with the presentation online. Whew! what a trial.

Yep, Word formatting will make a mess in HTML code. The only thing that's worse is trying to copy and paste from an Outlook email message... it makes one *huge* disaster of random weird tags mixed in with your HTML!

Yes, I'll have to dust off my html instruction book and try coding from scratch. Do you use editpad lite or notetab instead of notepad?

I'm definitely a beginner. All I know so far is <i></i> and <b></b>. After that I'm lost. But alas, I keep hearing that journalists need to learn html, so I have a goal to improve in this area.

Style sheets are pretty easy to learn. I have a couple of articles posted in the CSS section that will get you started.

The hardest part is memorizing which properties do what and which attributes go with them. I use this site as a memory tickler:

http://www.eskimo.com/~bloo/indexdot/css/propindex/all.htm

Also, I don't know what class you are taking but the (free!) courses on this site are pretty good:

Actually I use HTML-Kit, which is available from download.com for free (you may have noticed I have a real affinity for free stuff!). It's awesomely customizable, you can basically create whatever windows and toolbars you want. Also, while your work is all done code-only it has a nice Preview display that lets you see what your page will look like BEFORE you post it live.

If you want to try it I recommend you also use this guide to help you customize it to your own preferences:

I will check them all out. Thanks. I have taken many classes at Virtual University (they have been around for a long time). There is an instructor, homework, mentors, message board for the class. It is very inexpensive for five weeks.

Knowing some HTML really helps even when you use an editing program like Front Page. When something goes wrong, you can recognize what the problem is. It relieves some of the frustration.

Yes I agree 100% Angie. I hand code HTML in a text editor, but even people who use programs to create HTML should be able to go in and tweak them if they need to. You never know when you'll need to make an emergency change by hand!

I should pull my book out and review it before the cascading style sheets class starts up. I could use a refresher course.

I consider myself to be an advanced html user. I have moved from coding every single line to generally using .css to code a web site. I am now tackling .php. I am interested in database driven site.

I'd consider myself advanced, but definitely not a pro. I recommend keeping an HTML "cheat sheet" around. Before you know, you'll have so much memorized...

I can do italics and bold. When I want to center things or do a bulleted list, I have to look up how to do it.

So I'm VERY much a beginner.

Leah,

I'm with you on this one. One of my goals for the new year is to learn HTML so I can make an even bigger impact on my site and in my newsletter.

I to have to look things up. I've recently been using HTML for different colors of the fonts used.

So maybe we can learn together.

How interesting to see this thread. I missed it all the previous times it came around. I didn't know we had an HTML editor. Oh, actually, I've just looked and - at the moment - we don't have one. But I saw a whole set of articles on the site on HTML basics and I'll certainly be reading those.

But in answer to the question, I'm not an absolute beginner, and I comfortably use what I usually need in preparing articles for BellaOnline. Some things I have to look up. And having done it, still don't understand how to apply it.
