So a few days ago I started learning HTML with tutorials on W3Schools Online Web Tutorials. And it's going pretty well, a lot of the concepts I understand before I even look at the examples and after 3 days of learning it I scored a 17/20 (85% on their quiz). Now I know that the test to be certified in HTML will be much harder than that so I'm wondering where I can get a good practice test to study for it.

Also, I have a few other random questions related to HTML-

1) You can be any age to get certified in HTML right? (I'm a sophmore in high school right now)
2) What's the code for a background image. I know img is <img src> but how do I make an image my background?
3) What's the code for creating an email link?

And also, what language should I start learning after HTML? I've heard CSS is good, and then PHP after that, so I've kind of been shooting for that. Is that a good plan?

Congrats for your score ! :thumbup1:

If you plan to get HTML certificate from w3schools, you must consider about these before you decided to take exam :

  • Your supervisor when you taking the exam.
  • You must also study about XHTML and CSS before taking HTML exam.
  • Cost.
For your question:
1) Right.
2) In HTML, you can use "background". In CSS, you can use "background-image".

<html>
<h1>Test</h1>
<body background = "yourImage.ext">
</body>
</html>
3) Use "mailto" and add "subject" if you want.

<html>
<a href = "mailto:yourEmail@anything.com?subject=yourSubject">Contact Us</a>
</html>

That's a good order to go in. Most style stuff is done in CSS nowadays, though you can still do HTML 4 styling--albeit more limited--if you like.

As for your other stuff:
1) Shouldn't be a problem.
2)
<body background="url/to/image.png"> ... </body>
3)
<a href="mailto:htmlcoder@example.com">Email link</a>

Edit: Irfan, I swear your post wasn't there when I answered. :D

Hey there,

I am actually in an Associates program for Web Development. Currently I am still taking my general education requirements so I haven't taken any of my web design or programming classes yet but I was wondering if you felt it was necessary to get the HTML certification?

Thanks,
Jon

In my opinion, no. If you're good enough, companies will see that in your technical interviews. If they don't have a technical interview, then your certificate probably isn't really needed. But that's just my opinion.

Hi Mate

I congratulate for your good score on W3schools. I think if you have good knowledge on HTML it is sufficient to get through interviews,even though if you don't have certification in HTML.
