Definitions and Concepts

Learning web design is not as difficult as some people may think. If you are a small business owner and don't have a website yet, now is the perfect time to do so.

Step-by-Step Process

This website takes you through the whole process of building a website. Part I of the process is learning about HTML and CSS. Once you have an understanding of both, you will see how they work together to create professional looking websites.

Topics Covered

HTML Fundamentals

Here is just a brief overview of HTML fundamentals before going into definitions and concepts

Example:

<tag attribute="value">element content</tag>

Both in my website and in my book, I distinguish actual HTML code by enclosing the code in a yellow box and use the font of courier new. This is a guide so that you know that the yellow box represents HTML code.

Example:

<body>
 <h1>Title to Website</h1>
  <p>Here is my first paragraph</p>
</body>

CSS Fundamentals

To give a brief overview of CSS syntax. There are three main parts.

Example:

selector { property: value; }

There is obviously a lot more to HTML and CSS than just the above. It is just a quick overview of the syntax to both HTML and CSS. I suggest starting with HTML first and then go on to CSS.

Both in my website and in my book, I distinguish actual CSS code by enclosing the code in a green box and use the font of courier new. This is a guide so that you know that when you see a green box, the code within it represents CSS code.

Example:

h1 {
  font-size:18px;
  color:blue;
}
