Because a lot of web design programs like Dreamweaver and
FrontPage add odd code into the page, making it unviewable in many
browsers and making errors hard to fix, I actually teach my 7th
HTML is not difficult for basic stuff and the kids are very
capable of learning it.
This also helps prepare them more for high school computer
classes--especially our high school's web design class where they
learn html, css, php, and mySQL.
