Even though I already know HTML and CSS, I’m currently working through them as part of the Web Development pathway.
I’ve decided to put this post in the suggestions as there’s part of the course that feels like it doesn’t flow all that well.
In the HTML section, there was a heavy emphasis on semantic mark up, which is great in my opinion. For accessibility, I think we should all be more aware of how we are typing our HTML. One of the key points was to use the header, footer, nav tags instead of the way we were doing it for years and just sticking a class of header/footer/nav on a div.
Fast forward to the CSS course and the Olivia Woodruff Portfolio task. In the HTML mark up is the following.
The mark up shows a div with the class of header, something that in previous sections we were told not to do as it has no semantic meaning.
I really think this needs to be looked at and possibly changed as I don’t think it flows well and could potentially confused new users to html and css, especially after completing the html section.
Hope you are all well and busy studying. Wish you all the best and good health.
