Web Design Mini-Lessons

Web Design lessons will initially cover HTML and CSS

HTML is the language for describing the structure of Web pages. HTML gives authors the means to:

    • Publish online documents with headings, text, tables, lists, photos, etc.
    • Retrieve online information via hypertext links, at the click of a button.
    • Design forms for conducting transactions with remote services, for use in searching for information, making reservations, ordering products, etc.
    • Include spread-sheets, video clips, sound clips, and other applications directly in their documents.
CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language. The separation of HTML from CSS makes it easier to maintain sites, share style sheets across pages, and tailor pages to different environments. This is referred to as the separation of structure (or: content) from presentation.

See the W3C HTML and CSS web design page for specifications, links to resources and the latest official developments of these web standards.
