"People do not invest in education because they are rich. They become rich because they invest in education."

- Gabriel Verhoef


XHTML is the language used to write webpages. Learn how to create your very own webpages and websites from scratch with using as little as a simple text editor like Notepad.

XHTML (Hypertext Markup Language) -- The coding language used to create Hypertext documents for use on the World Wide Web.

XHTML and CSS training offered at MasterGrade.

Who should attend XHTML training?

Any Web developer needs to know XHTML before moving on to more advanced languages.

What is the aim of the course?

XHTML looks a lot like old-fashioned typesetting code, where you surround a block of text with codes that indicate how it should appear, additionally, in XHTML you can specify that a block of text, or a word, is linked to another file on the Internet.

XHTML files are meant to be viewed using a World Wide Web Client Program, such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

On completion of this course, you will be able to create and edit a web site even if you only have notepad on your computer!
