I have gone through the first 6 sections of HTML and have been somewhat disappointed on the coding standards being imposed.
I appreciate that HTML5 is still not official but there have been enough books written now and enough sites out in the wild to say certain things we are all agreed on. For example, that we can declare <html> as simply as that. There are some areas which are optional. Where I stopped was in the final part of Section 5 where you declare images. They have said that you MUST close the tag with a /. But this isn’t true because HTML5 doesn’t care if there is a closing tag or not it is more forgiving and ultimately easier and quicker to write.
Of course, this is an introductory course, it is also free and it shouldn’t go un-noticed that it is actually a very good tool, but this left me a little disappointed. Shouldn’t we be teaching new comers how to write things better than some of us have been for the last decade?
