This 11 hour, self-paced e-learning course is designed to give style developers an introduction into developing CSS style sheets for XPP 9.3, 9.4 or 9.5. A variation on this course is available for XPP 9.2 Users. Topics will include an overview of XML, basic information about typographic and compositional concepts, XPP concepts, and rules and best practices for developing CSS style sheets within XPP. You should allow up to a further 8 hours to complete the practical tasks in the hands-on exercises that are an integral part of this course.
Individual students will benefit most from this course if they have already been exposed to or worked with non-XPP page composition systems. Further benefits will accrue to those students who have experience with XML mark up, CSS, and/or experience as an operator or style developer using earlier non-CSS versions of XPP. The course will also be useful for students who have no background in the field although some of the non-CSS topics may require additional training.
