A Partial List of ITE170 Technical Terms

These terms have been used in the handouts linked to from the schedule page or in class lectures. Because these are technical terms, I will not answer questions during the test as to what they mean, that is, knowing them is part of the course. If a term is not on this list, I will explain it if requested. However, I will not explain the use of particular HTML tags, HTML attributes, or CSS properties or values. Terms are listed roughly in the order in which they appeared during the course.
