How to use htmlHQ

While the page order outlined does not need to be slavishly followed by all users, it does represent a logical progression through the features of the Hyper Text Markup Language. It is designed so that a section builds on its predecessor.

More experienced users may want to jump in part way through and the contents of each section are outlined below so you can easily select the sections of interest to you.

The right hand side bar (the one you're reading right now) is where you will find supplemental information. It is not essential reading but it does contain useful tips, tricks and explanations that will help you design the page you want.
