Cascading Style Sheets Introduction 1 Day Overview
This 1-day Essentials course will show you how Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to control the appearance of web pages without interfering with the HTML of the pages. This separation of structure and style helps to give CSS such an important role in web design. Anyone with an interest in creating or managing web pages will find that being able to work with CSS is an essential skill for all web professionals.
With our help, you will learn how to use CSS to control every aspect of a site's visuals: its fonts, colours, leading, margins, and more.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Use correct styles instead of deprecated HTML tags
- Design without relying on tables
- Include padding, margins, borders, and backgrounds
- Write selectors to target only specific parts of a page
- Produce horizontal and vertical navigation bars
- Position page elements
- Style hyperlinks
- Add background images
- Differentiate between external, embedded, and inline styles
Our goal is for you to understand how to enhance the visual appearance of your web pages.
