CSS gives Web designers control over the appearance of their web sites by separating the visual presentation from the content. It lets them easily make minor changes to a site or perform a complete overhaul of the design. In CSS Web Site Design, instructor and leading industry expert Eric Meyer reviews the essentials of CSS, including selectors, the cascade, and inheritance. The training also covers how to build effective navigation, how to lay out pages, and how to work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space. Using a project-based approach, Eric walks through the process of creating a Web page, while teaching the essentials of CSS along the way. By the end of the training, viewers will have the tools to master professional site design. Exercise files accompany the training videos.
In this chapter we're going to take a slightly different approach to the approach we've taken in previous chapters. Open up your Exercise Files folder and you open up the 10 together folder. There are your Exercise files and what you would do is you would load up for example, if you're doing exercise one EX 1001.html into Firefox and that will bring it up in Firefox and then in the Styles folder, you have ex1001.CSS, this corresponds to exercise one in chapter 10. Load that up into your editor and then the last bit is that there's this fragments folder and this contains fragment files that are just small text files that contain fragments of the final style sheet.
This is what I'll be using in order to bring styles into the style sheet. If you wish to do the same you certainly can, otherwise you can do a sort of pause and type so if I drag this into here then the contents of that text file are added to my CSS file here. Then we just move on from there.
