HTML Basic Tags and Structure
We will talk about the most commonly used tags that you’ll see on a website. We will cover headings, paragraphs, links, images, list items and divisions. Also we will familiarize ourselves with the basic structure of HTML markup and how to open and close a tag.
Basic CSS Properties
In this video we will learn to style a certain element or tag using CSS properties by changing width, height, colors, floats, etc. Using these basic properties we can turn our HTML markup into a well presented website.
Now that we have finished positioning our layout structure we can now proceed to the next part, which is marking up the HTML of our very basic design template and completely style it using CSS.
So, that’s it for this part. I hope you learned something and found the videos helpful. If you have any suggestions regarding the videos, or how I presented them, please leave a comment below. I’m really excited to hear your thoughts in the comment section, see you guys down there.
