About HTML Delivery
The HTML delivery method allows the delivery of HTML5 tests through a web browser and in SecureClient. You can only use this delivery method for tests built with HTML compatible items. You must also select the HTML Delivery setting when you create your test.
You can create and edit HTML tests in the Test Wizard and Test Creation. You should ensure that any edits you make to your test are in line with HTML-supported functionality.
