Yep for me the same, I'm in my second year IT at the Karel de Grote 
Hogeschool (University of Professional Education). In the first year we 
also learnt 'HTML', but it was also very invalid HTML, using a lot of 
styletags and even <marquee /> YUK! After that is was even worse! We 
learnt how to use M$ Frontpage and we even had to do an exam about it 
:'-( In the third year we can choose 'Webdesign and Multimedia' as an 
option and then we learn how to use Dreamwaver :-s
