Prof Dan has the following comments about the syllabus: "Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) elements are the building blocks of web pages. A web page is made up of a collection of HTML elements. HTML elements describe each piece of content on a web page so that the web browser knows how to display it. (Codecademy.com)

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language. CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content from document presentation, including elements such as the layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, enable multiple pages to share formatting, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content (such as by allowing for tableless web design). (Wikipedia.com)"
