Fun session. Thank you Mads! You're one of my favorite speakers.
@saikatdas0790: Where did you read that? I'm looking at this link:
Attribute values can contain text and character references, with additional restrictions depending on whether they are unquoted attribute values, single-quoted attribute values, or double-quoted attribute values. Also, the HTML elements section of this reference describes further restrictions on the allowed values of particular attributes, and attributes must have values that conform to those restrictions.
In the the HTML syntax, attributes can be specified in four different ways:
empty attribute syntax
unquoted attribute-value syntax
single-quoted attribute-value syntax
double-quoted attribute-value syntax

@David Carachi: This series has a lot of really good ideas, thanks to Clint Rutkas. However, I would encourage you to wait about two weeks ... the 8.1 version of this series should be released by then.

It is a "complete rewrite" focusing more on "absolute beginners" than this series did.
@Chris: That is a pickle. Are you sure you extracted the zip file to a real folder before attempting to copy something into it? Could it be you're attempting to copy into a zipped folder? Or, could it be that the target folder is in use? I can't imagine what else it could be.
@Neha: re: self assessment ... I'm not entirely sure (once it leaves my possession, I have a hard time keeping track of it) but Microsoft Virtual Academy may have some assessment questions based on this course. www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com ... you'll recognize the title of the series there. Good luck!
@RainMakerQuark: That's a really good question. I'm not 100% sure, but I *think* it is because there's a default style on the text. I could override that style by adding the following:
<Setter Property="FontSize" Value="42" />
@Mikamasing: Yes, things change. I address that very question in the updated version of this series (2013):
Be sure to watch from the beginning!
