A knowledge of elementary HTML is assumed by having taken CAPP385. You should know enough HTML to create lists and tables, links, inline images, and know the basic structure of an HTML document. You can bypass 385 if you already know basic HTML.
A good tutorial on HTML is at the w3.org (they define HTML, so who to trust better?) at http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/
