CSS is HTML's other half and the way we style web sites. If HTML is the frame if your house, CSS is the paint, curtains, light fixtures, etc.

In this two-class series, we'll guide you through everything you need to know to start bringing your site design to life. We'll begin by explaining the three methods of connecting CSS to your HTML, explaining when and where you'll use each.

Then, we'll introduce you to the CSS style properties that will let you control everything from font size to padding to margins to background images to you name it.

Pre-requisite: Experience with HTML and basic web site publishing.

NB: This course is the essential precursor to our CSS: Positioning & Layouts class (taking place in February) and a prerequisite for many other classes we teach.
