This course is part of W3C's "Front-End Web Developer" Professional Certificate.
Learn the basic building blocks of Web design and style – HTML5 and CSS – to give your site a professional look and feel. We guide you step-by-step in how to use the latest Web standards to create a site to be proud of.
By the end of the course, you should understand all the fundamental elements – from headers and links to images and sidebars – and leave having built a basic framework for your own Web site.

This is the better of the...
This is the better of the 3 courses I have taken so far. The first parts of quite well written, and explain the tags and theories behind them. They also explain best practices, including accessibility.
The section regarding positioning really needs a lot of work. They make this part very hard to understand.
The second course is the CSS course. It is basically a repeat of the CSS section of the HTML course, with a few new concepts explained.
Also, while one of the lecturer definitely knows his material, his first language is French, and his English can be very hard to understand. You will want to download the transcripts.
I just took the Traversy courses, which made it so easy to learn the concepts, including grid, which is not covered in the courses thus far. Grid and Flexbox are the go to standards now for positioning, for those that are unaware.
There are plenty of option s out there. Until W3C revamps their courses, I'd avoid paying any money for these courses. I'm glad I didnt. I just audited the courses.
