A little history about
HTML: An Interactive Tutorial
This tutorial was a caffeinated summer project in 1996, right before I started 9th grade. It was updated extensively during my 9th grade year, and has been lightly revised several times over the years.
So, if you're thinking "This guy writes and spells like he never finished high school!" you're half-right, the majority of this HTML tutorial
written before I finished high school!
Less than a year after this tutorial was started in 1996, I was diagnosed with cancer. I wrote a book during my treatment, which, I believe, you may find very touching if you enjoyed this tutorial.
Help me out and read the first chapter free online.
This tutorial was written by
Dave Kristula (webmaster AT davesite DOT com).
This tutorial's CGI (Your Work!) script was written by Dave's friend (and a supergenius, according to Dave) Andrew W.
