Web Design Made Simple
Whether you are a professional web developer or hobbyist, web design is very rewarding. There is a feeling of accomplishment when you upload your first online web page. It is very empowering to realize you could be reaching many people from around the world!
There are many ways to design a web page. Some initially will design web pages with WYSIWYG editors (What You See Is What You Get) that are virtually plug-n-play. Insert a photo, type some text, add links, and voila, instant web page. While some may find this type of web design satisfying, others desire to learn more about the code behind a web page.
If you are one of the many who desire to write semantic, standards compliant XHTML and CSS, then the tutorials on this web site will get you started on your path. The content is not only aimed at web coding beginners, but also to those with prior web page experience. I hope it will be challenging and a lot of fun for those with varying levels of knowledge.
Where to Start ?
Start at the beginning with the first tutorial; if you enjoyed it, read the next one.
If you want a structured format, the tutorials are listed in a specific order for an optimal learning experience. It is recommended to follow in order, especially if you are new to web design. Each tutorial builds on the subject matter of previous tutorials, but it is also possible to browse at your own pace and read only the topics that interest you.
You are encouraged to print each tutorial for individual use. Each tutorial is optimized for print, which means only necessary graphics, text, and links will be included in your final printed copy. Full link URLs are also displayed when using a standards compliant browser like Firefox, Safari or Opera.
