1) Admittedly, the syllabus (attached at the bottom of this post) is a simple one; we have our text - we are at about Chapter Four. We have been making good progress in learning about the different HTML tags and in our last class. we looked (for the first time) at CSS. In class I will go over the chapters we will skip -- are there a few of them. Also, This course needs your posting and commenting on the forum ... everyone needs to join in. Also, again, during the class times watch a few youTube videos on HTML, CSS, and Web Design, AND, bring questions to class (and, post them to this forum).

2) GRADING is determined by your attendance in class. Don't miss any days!

3) TESTING is NOT part of the course. But, I do hope you will get involved; you will learn more about the subject and have much more fun sharing your knowledge.

I hope this helps.

The book mentions that you can hide the source code for a web page. Curious how to do that?

Here is one link about it: ... e-Code.htm

And one from Stack Overflow (an absolute requirement website to know about!) ... -html-page

And, of course, Microsoft has a solution for us also: ... ge+source+

.... is this what the book's solution was saying?

The book says you can hide the source code but doesn't explain how. After reading the articles and comments on the attached links, you can't really hide the code. You can make it harder for the average person to find but not the average hacker.
Thanks for providing the attached links.
