DOM or <sub>?

presentation is everything

Decorating your bare HTML pages.

I’m not sure how far we’ll get today; this is a tricky bit of subject matter, and probably the most complex that we will deal with in the course. Don’t be afraid if it doesn’t all make sense straight away; there will be time to kick it all off. Continue reading ‘DOM or <sub>?’
