- In this course you'll create a web layout that will respond to various screen sizes, providing an optimal design and reading experience for your visitors. And in addition to optimizing our design for screens, we'll also make our design printer-friendly by helping users conserve ink, use less sheets of paper, and provide them with multiple ways to get back to the website from the printed page. We'll start the course by creating a well-structured HTML page that focuses on the content, then we'll use CSS to create the style and layout. Finally, we'll use media settings in CSS to optimize our design for smaller screens and for print.
And this course provides step-by-step instructions for every aspect of the project, so you don't need to have any prior knowledge of HTML and CSS. And since we'll be building a specific project, this course will introduce you to real world uses of a series of HTML elements and CSS properties. My goal is to cover a wide range of techniques and teach you how to construct a web design that is attractive, responsive, and shows you how to combine various HTML elements with CSS properties, so if you learn a new or interesting technique in this course, you'll be able to use other online resources to search and explore other variations on your own.
