Hi everyone,


I like to give a few titles available from NLS that is obtained from
WebBraille if anyone wishes to learn more on HTML and to look at examples of
how the code is being written. This service is available to U.S. citizens
only who receives services from their respective state library. To download
the book, the user of WebBraille must have a username and password to obtain

Contact your local cooperating library if you have never signed up for this
service before. 

I have been using WebBraille since 1999 when it was launched.


For those who don't read Braille, I will try to search for resources
available in audio format and post that information when I have a chance to
search through the NLS voyager catalog in their database.


Here is a short listing available.

Hello Riz,


I thoroughly enjoyed your podcast on html coding.  I have been wanting to
learn basic html for quite a while and have tried a few simple tutorials.
Your podcast really gave me a very good overall basic idea of how to code
html.  I am very excited to get started, since I was a programmer for
thirteen years for Bank of America back in the seventies and eighties.  


Your descriptions were very clear and your presentation was warm and
enjoyable.  I very much look forward to more podcasts from you.  Thank you!
