Hi Rob,

Not that I know of. I could not allow recording without the consent of
all meeting participants, even those who get there late. If somebody
records them, I don't want to know about it.

The good news is, depending on whether your meetings are online and
what online software you use, I might be able to present at an olug

>> Hi all,
>> Wednesday Evening, June 1, 2022, at 7pm Eastern Daylight time Steve
>> Litt gives his "HTML and CSS: What you need to know" presentation at
>> the monthly GoLUG online meeting.
>> When: 7pm Eastern Daylight time on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. Starts
>> right at 7pm Eastern Daylight Time.
>> Where: https://meet.jit.si/golug
>> Subject: HTML and CSS: What you need to know.
>> HTML is the foundation of web page construction. No matter what tools
>> you use, they eventually boil down to HTML. CSS (Cascading Style
>> Sheets) is the modern foundation of web page appearance, decoration,
>> and to some extent behavior. All quality tools eventually apply
>> appearances via CSS. Consider the following:
>> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS improves understanding of
>> higher level web construction tools.
>> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS gives the term "full stack
>>   developer" a whole new meaning.
>> * Making your HTML5 also well-formed XML yields huge benefits in
>>   debugging, portability, and getting the output you envisioned.
>> Doing this is trivially easy.
>> * HTML and CSS are all that's necessary to make a responsive,
>>   mobile-friendly web page.
>> * A deep understanding of HTML and CSS plus a zen-coding editor often
>>   make direct HTML/CSS authoring easier and quicker than some of the
>>   higher level tools.
>> * A deep understanding of CSS makes a world of difference in the
>>   appearance of quick-author methods such as Markdown, Asciidoc, and
>>   reStructuredText. Get the best of both worlds.
>> * Markdown (or other "wiki" languages) plus tokens plus simple Python
>>   programming plus a deep knowledge of HTML and CSS produces amazing
>>   results from the fastest authoring environments.
>> * Each HTML element has a peer in the Document Object Model (DOM),
>>   making it easy to implement Javascript solutions or modify with an
>>   XML parser (assuming the HTML5 is also XML).
>> Topics discussed include the following:
>> * Container type HTML elements
>> * Non-container type HTML elements
>> * Making your HTML5 also be well-formed XML
>>         - Debugging your XMLized HTML5
>>                 . Much easier than debugging non-XML HTML5
>> * The extreme benefits of styles-based authoring
>> * Structure of a CSS Style
>> * HTML5 validation
>> * Making your page responsive
>>         - Mobile-first authoring
>> * Mobile-friendly testing
>> If you have anything to do with web authoring or would like to in the
>> future, this presentation is for you.
>> What is GoLUG? Greater Orlando Linux User Group, Orlando Florida.
>> Who will be there? Folks from Orlando Florida, all over the United
>>   States, and likely internationally.
