This course introduces web designers to the nuts and bolts of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the programming language used to create web pages. Author Bill Weinman explains what HTML is, how it's structured, and presents the major tags and features of the language. Discover how to format text and lists, add images and flow text around them, link to other pages and sites, embed audio and video, and create HTML forms. Additional tutorials cover the new elements in HTML5, the latest version of HTML, and prepare you to start working with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. This is the language that's used to add presentation styling to HTML documents. CSS is a powerful and flexible way to add format to a webpage for presentation. Using CSS, it's relatively easy to take a simple page of text and images and format it to present as a fully polished webpage. CSS has a simple syntax that consists of selectors, properties and values that together make up style rules.
CSS rules are able to cascade in ways that give the developer fine-grained control over how each element of a page is formatted. This chapter is just an introduction to CSS. It should give you enough knowledge to follow along with the examples in this course. For more information see my course CSS for Developers here in the lynda.com online training library.
