We all spend a lot of time visiting websites. It's where we get information, learn new skills (like at MPV!) and do our shopping. A well-designed web site is much like a beautiful house, with its well-planned layout and attractive look & feel that makes it appealing and comfortable. Great web design is what Eric Freeman and Elisabeth Robson are all about! And in this course-the second course of their multi-part series covering HTML and CSS-you'll start creating your "home on the web", step by step, using nothing but a text editor!
Think of a website's wireframe as an architect's blueprint: this is where you decide where everything will go and what space it will occupy. Like building a house, it's important to get your website mapped out and diagrammed before you start putting in the all-important contents! Elisabeth and Eric show you the ins and outs of this process and explain all the important things you need to keep in mind during a site's design phase.
Next it's time to start adding the details that give your site its unique look: CSS to the rescue! Our web design experts walk you through the writing of your first line of CSS, to give you a taste of what's to come...on your way to creating an awesome-looking and fully functional website!
Stay tuned for the next part of this multi-course series on HTML and CSS and be sure to check out our ever-expanding library of web design courses below:
For someone just getting started in coding for making my own web pages and browsers, this is a great course outline for most of the common core tags and descriptions for building a simple page. Easy to access and understand, it presents the information very well with the use of descriptions and visual examples.

Awesome first course. It covers a lot of information. What I most value was the "good practice" advise which clearly sets a solid foundation on which to build more knowledge of HTML5. Thank you!

Great tutorial. I learnt more here than I did taking Web Design classes in college.
The examples are detailed, in an ordered and clear manner. I love that the trainers provide information about the background for certain aspects of HTML usage. I find this helps in understanding why things are done the way they are.
Looking forward to the next course in the series.

HTML 101 was a good intro course and once again I learned a lot and I am looking forward to the next course.

There simply is no better place to learn this. PLEASE tell me that you will keep building your library of development tutorials!

I like that it begins with basic information and each change made to html gets pasted in the browser to show how it changed the page. I believe everyone will understand html who watches this program.
