Today is a significant day in the history of the Internet. On 6 August 1991, exactly twenty years ago, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Its creator, the now internationally known Tim Berners-Lee, posted a short summary of the project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup and gave birth to a new technology which would fundamentally change the world as we knew it. The World Wide Web has its foundation in work that Berners-Lee did in the 1980s at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
Last week we taught you how to make a web site from start to finish, including finding a reliable web host to host your site. Here's the complete guide so you have access to all the lessons in one convenient location. How to Make a Web Site Part I: Understanding and Writing HTML The first thing you need to learn when making a web site is basic HTML, and that's what this lesson will teach you.
This week we showed you how to create a web site using HTML and CSS... but now what? Here are some additional resources and methods you can use to learn more. First things first: If you want the notes for all of the lessons as a PDF, you can download one here . Next, you should know that perhaps the best way to learn new things with HTML and CSS is to simply look at the source code on other sites.
So you've learned the basics of HTML , brushed up on styling and CSS , and taken your web page design idea from concept to reality . Now it's time to find a host and launch your site. Today's lesson is probably the easiest part of the whole make-a-web-site process (at least for the kind of site we're making), and it involves two simple steps: Find and register with a web host Upload your files to your host Once you've done that, anyone with access to that wacky world wide web can see your site.
Now that you've got the basics of HTML and CSS down, we're going to take a look at how to actually use that knowledge to make a real web site. Today, we'll take you through the process of creating a site from start to finish. This lesson presumes you know how to put together a site layout in Photoshop (or some other application). If you don't, fortunately we've covered that already so you can catch up.
In part the first of our Night School series on how to make a web site, we learned a little about the bones of a web page: HTML. In today's lesson, we're going to start putting the clothes on our site using styling and CSS. The video above walks you through the three ways you can apply style to elements in an HTML document. It assumes you've already watched the first lesson , so if you haven't, you may want to have done that first. By the end of this lesson, you'll understand how to add style properties to elements within your web page. For extra reference material, check out the text below.
Everyone lives at least a little bit of their life on the web, and whether you develop web pages for a living, want to create a nameplate web site, or simply want more control over how your comments show up on web sites, having an understanding of HTML at your command is invaluable. With that in mind, in our first lesson on how to make a web site, we're covering the top-level basics of HTML—the predominant markup language of the web. Nowadays it's easy to put together a web presence using social media and a personal landing page, but if you want to actually make your own web site you're going to need to learn HTML and CSS.
