Train  39 
Tip: Include an HTML overview 
 Although current site-building programs can be used to lay out sites with a fair degree of 
precision, sometimes manual code-tweaking is required to achieve a desired look or 
effect. Make sure that training includes an overview of HTML.  
 This overview should impart a basic understanding of how HTML works, and show how 
to make changes to the code of a page. Even if it only teaches Web team members how to 
delete a basic 

 tag, training in HTML will be helpful to them in their day-to-day work.
