Learn HTML and CSS: An Absolute Beginner’s Guide [HTML & XHTML Tutorials]
This article was written in 2009 and remains one of our most popular posts. If you’re keen to learn more about HTML and CSS, you may find this recent article on the future of HTML of great interest. So, you’re ready to take the plunge and begin to learn how to build your own web pages and sites? Fantastic! We’ve got quite a ride ahead, so I hope you’re feeling adventurous. This information is an excerpt from my recently released book, Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSS, 2nd edition. In the following pages, I’ll show you how to set up your computer — be it PC or Mac — so that you’re ready to build a site. Then, we’ll meet XHTML and walk through the details of how to structure a web page correctly. Finally, we’ll turn to the topic of Cascading Style Sheets, which we’ll use to change the way elements of your web page look. Don’t worry if some of these terms are unfamiliar — this excerpt, like the book itself, assumes that you have no knowledge about building web pages.
