Call me picky but I am not entirely comfortable with that U.Texas site, even though it's a commendable effort overall.

"The relational model represents data in the form of two-dimension tables"
"A relational table is a flat file ..."
"Primary and foreign keys are the most basic components on which relational 
theory is based."
"The definition of second normal form states that only tables with composite primary keys can be in 1NF but not in 2NF" "The third normal form requires that all columns in a relational table are dependent only upon the primary key"
