Learning CSS





Mark999111
Hey

Im thinking of redoing my site in CSS but the change from html > css is proving quite difficult. For a start, i cant find a decent resource. W3schools guide for css is simply useless and htmlgoodies isnt doing much for me either.

Ive been trying to find an answer to this question to: can CSS replace the cheap look that you get from tables in html? if so, how?

Does anyone also know a good site for learnign CSS?

Thanks

It's not easy to replace tables with css. I would start with using it for style purposes like font size and building it up from there.

I have, well i used to in my site to define all the text colours etc. at once under the <head> bit, but used html for the rest.

You can goto http://www.w3schools.com and learn from there. I'm still learning it myself and CSS is definately the way to go and will be for a while.

I'm just starting to learn CSS as well Very Happy

If you look at my site (http://www.stickboarder.be/index.dsa), you'll see something that I've learned to do in CSS: A box on the right (see the site), which I would have previously done using tables. This is achieved using the CSS 'float' and 'width'. 'float: right' aligns the box to the right, and 'width: 250px;' sets the width to 250 pixels. You can play around with these settings, and also absolute positioning, to do things that were previously done using tables.

A good site is http://www.echoecho.com/css.htm it helped me allot... but if you have adobe golive cs2 it's not very difficult (almost easy) to learn it.

Or just take a look at the code of the following page:

You can learn alot by looking at other websites, that's the way I learned it...
Like some people allready said, you can do alot with divs and float:right or left;

W3c isn't a tutorial site but still gives you the right information on how to do things and I mean the RIGHT way. Try to follow the w3c rules please, it would make the web a better place!

I made a website completely with divs and css
html: http://home.scarlet.be/~cv915564/index2.htm
css: http://home.scarlet.be/~cv915564/main.css

Hope this helps you

mmmm CSS seems a bit to difficult for my current level. Ive only been using html for about 2 or 3 weeks and itis pretty easy, but css... hard.

But i dunno, is there any point??? What can you do with CSS that you cant with html? I know about positioning images but you can do that with tables in html

reason 1: you have a font color in your website, let's say black and you want to change it to blue

without css, you'll have to update every page and change the color

with css, you just change the color in the external css page and al you pages will be updated...

css is making your life easier
