HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS HTML: The Structural Foundation of Web Pages and Applications Anchor Tags

How or where do I find the shortcuts for typing tags and attributes? Typing it out each time is laborious!

In the video the new or altered tags and attributes just pop up with the closing tag and/or quotes. I am typing everything out in the workspace file. Very time consuming.

Hi Christine, i would argue that when starting out it's important to write out these tags each time for practice ;) However there are text editors out there such as Atom and Sublime Text that have the tag auto completing features if you wanna check them out :)

Thanks Grace. I'll check them out. :-)

VSCode is another good one. I like it for the terminal integration. I do, however, agree with Grace that it is good to type them by hand at first. :)
