CSS Web Site Design: What is CSSExcerpt from Lynda.com's training comes a session on what CSS is and how to use it in your web site design
CSS gives Web designers control over the appearance of their web sites by separating the visual presentation from the content. It lets them easily make minor changes to a site or perform a complete overhaul of the design. In CSS Web Site Design, instructor and leading industry expert Eric Meyer reviews the essentials of CSS, including selectors, the cascade, and inheritance.
The training also covers how to build effective navigation, how to lay out pages, and how to work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space. Using a project-based approach, Eric walks through the process of creating a Web page, while teaching the essentials of CSS along the way. By the end of the training, viewers will have the tools to master professional site design. Exercise files accompany the training videos.
In this video, Eric Meyer defines what CSS is and how and why you can use it in the design of your websites. Meyer likens CSS to a set of clothes that you put on a web page, biut underneath the clothes is the raw body or structural skeleton that makes the page go. In the same way that you can change your clothes, you can change the CSS web page's clothes to create a different look to your page.
