HTML in Front End Web Development track?

I am currently working in the Front End Web Development track and in the middle of the CSS Basics portion. The next series is more CSS, then dives straight into JavaScript. I have noticed there is no HTML basics at all in this track. Shouldn't this be involved somewhere in the track? The first HTML portion in this track deals with Forms, however I know there is a lot more basic stuff to learn, from a beginners stand point. We learned a little HTML in the My First Website portion with Nick, however very basic.

Shouldn't some beginner/intermediate HTML concepts be learned before JavaScript and advanced CSS?

Any input is welcome.

Hey Rick.

I don't really remember how that particular track was laid out, but I did go into it with a fair amount of HTML knowledge, but little CSS and JavaScript, so I do recall that it worked well for me.

If you're not that comfortable with HTML, Joy has a very basic and highly informative HTML Course. It take just under an hour to complete, but you will come out of it with more than enough to continue on with your current track with a better understanding. Give it a look.

Keep Coding! :)
