If you’re going to build and maintain a website, you’ll need to use html at some point, often to correct or adjust what your web design software does. Learning about html can also help you to understand how this whole “web” thing got started and a bit of how it works. (The Wikipedia, of course, has a great entry on html.)
If you missed this workshop or want an electronic copy of the handout from the workshop, here is Anne’s basic html handout.
