Takes the student step-by-step through the process of using CSS positioning to create pages that have traditionally been laid out using HTML tables.
(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bill Weinman and welcome to CSS Positioning: Best Practices. In this course, I'll show you how to use CSS Positioning techniques instead of HTML tables to layout a webpage. The first part of this course is a brief review of CSS, so that we have a good starting point. Then we'll discuss the different techniques used to position objects in a webpage using CSS instead of tables. The second part is a case study where we will go through the process of creating a real website using CSS for all the formatting and positioning.
If you're a web designer or a coder working with HTML or XHTML and CSS, either directly or with a WYSIWYG editor, the techniques and practices you'll see in this title will significantly improve your workflow. I've been a working programmer for over 25 years and have been working in the web domain since the web began emerging in the early 90's. I use these techniques and practices in my own work and I'm excited to share these insights with you now. So, let's get started with CSS Positioning: Best Practices.
