IT145 HTML and Cascading Style Sheets

Section 300 — Fall 2013 — Thomas Beach

NOTE: This class was last taught at UNM-LA in the Fall of 2013. Because UNM-LA's Web Technology degree program has been discontinued, we do not plan to offer this course again. But, I am leaving these course Web pages up for reference.

NOTE: Many of the pages in this Web site have not had their code updated to HTML5 (they are written in some previous version of HTML or XHTML), so do no look to the code of these pages of examples of HTML5. But the lecture material on the pages have been updated for HTML5 and CSS3.

This is the class website for the IT 145: Web Fundementals: HTML and Style Sheets course taught at UNM-LA. This 3-credit course is an introduction to using HTML and Cascading Style Sheets. The catalog description of the course is:

Hands-on course in designing and developing World Wide Web pages using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). The course will cover HTML tags for text, images, links, lists, simple layouts, complex layouts, tables, frames, styles, internal style sheets, and external style sheets. Basic issues in using graphics on the Web will also be covered.
Prerequisite: CT 102

The prerequisite of CT 102 is there to ensure that you have the basic computer literacy needed to use the PC computers at UNM-LA, and that you are familiar with web browsing and using email. If you meet these requirements but have not taken CT 102, you can contact the instructor ( to have the prerequisite waved. Be sure to include you UNM student number along with the request



The textbook for this course is:

Visual Quickstart Guide: HTML5 and CSS3 (7th edition) by Elizabeth Castro and Bruce Hyslop.


Web Site

This Web site is here for your reference and to suplement my lecturing. Reading the site pages is not a substitution for attending class. You'll note that its format is rather narrow...this was so that it would fit on our old monitors at UNM-LA. I could make it wider, but I think I'll leave it narrow so you could use it for reference alongside some other window you are working in.



The navigation menu on the left gives access to the lecture material, assignments, and examples for each class session (some material may become available as the semester progresses). There are also links to useful resourses for this course.

If you have any further questions, please contact the instructor (
