Really basic into to HTML/CSS for journalism students

Four reasons why journalism students need to know basic HTML/CSS

1. So you can trouble shoot your own blog/website.

2. It is on the “essential list” of journalism skills (and many internships and entry level jobs require it).

3. It’s not that hard.

4. Even if you never write a line of code, you need to be able to communicate with those who do.

The “Must Know” HTML List
You must be able to identify, understand, and write the following HTML code. (Use thisQuick List for reference.)

<link rel=”stylesheet”… or <style>
<h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <h4>, <h5,><h6>
<br />
<em> and <i>
<strong> and <b>
<a href=””>Link-text goes here</a>
<a href=””><img src=”URL” alt=”Alternate Text” /></a>
<a href=””>Send e-mail</a>
<!– This is a comment –>

This is just the beginning. You want – and need – to know more. But it’s a place to start.

About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine,, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon). Check out some of my most recently published work here.

    But I gotta warn you, these tips ain’t for the faint at heart, so if having hot tracks
    and all of the spoils of life that comes along with being a
    platinum producer scares you, like, you know, the money, the cars and clothes, champagne flows, women.
    While some non-exclusive right licenses, allows its buyer to “lease” a certain beat for a
    time or even for beat distributions. I know the drums on this track are sampled from a Parilament song, but I’m not sure on the melody.
    You can fast track the development of your career by buying from the best beat producers online.
