    Is there more to HTML than what Codecademy teaches?

    Hey all I've been learning HTML on Codecademy.. and I'm coming to the end of it and ready to move onto the CSS bit.. I haven't found it particularly hard if Im honest, I've had a few hicups but that was down to simple error such as forgetting the "/" when closing a tag. Im just wondering is this it or is there like advanced HTML or does codecademy provide the knowledge of what HTML is in a nutshell? I havent started CSS yet but I bought a book of Amazon called CSS the missing manual.

    HTML is not hard by itself. However, there is more to HTML than just the tags themselves. The harder parts are the concept behind HTML, or of building a website, respectively, and applying CSS to create advanced layouts. If you care for more advanced topics dig into semantic HTML and progressive enhancement.

    Maybe throw a look at XML too, maybe to get some more info. Or, if you really want to get into web development, check out JavaScript. That is more complicated and allows for much more in depth creation.
