    learning CSS

    I know very little about HTML. I would like to learn how to use Cascading Style Sheets. Can someone direct me to some good sites that have some helpful tutorials using CSS?

    Is there something in particular you wanted to know, or just in general?

    learning basic CSS

    Another great site is http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp.

    It covers CSS 1, 2, and 3 completely and has lots of examples that you can alter and reload the browser window so you can play around with them. And it's free. It covers the basics and most of the advanced stuff.

    Once you get a little more experience under your belt with CSS, head over to www.alistapart.com for articles that target specific issues concerning CSS, HTML, and XHTML.

    css links

    Thank you Greg for the two great CSS links. I just checked it out and the site looks like a good place for a beginner to start. I hope I will be able to add my own style sheets soon to my personal website.

    even better gurly

    go to your local library and check out the book html for dummies, no disrespect intened, I dont know what these guys will say but I will admit that I have read my share of those books. Not only are they easy to learn from they provide you with examples you can use, plus once you pretty much have the book conquered, it becomes a nifty refrence. Then once you get the basics then you can go to other websites and right click the middle of the page or just anywere within the borders and scroll down to "view source" this will bring up that developers codes and you can select all and copy and then paste that code in your editor, from there you can dissect the code, intervertinly checking back to the explorer to see what happened, that way you learn by trial and error, which in my opinion is the best way!

    Hope that helps.

    The only problem with this is that IME the vast majority of these books are filled with errors and proprietary code.

    That is the main reason I usually recomend people to read the actual HTML & CSS specs. They also have a lot of good examples, but don't have very many errors and additionally have greate crossreferencing.

    The specs are available as full downloads if you don't have a permanent/flatrate internet connection.

    For those people that can learn by reading at the computer, they are a really greate way of learning correct HTML.

    I agree with what you are saying they do leave out mass amounts of info, but I still would recommend a newbie to html atleast thumb threw the text, to gain some kind of idea of what they are getting into, I feel that yes there are alot of helpful sites on the net, but not all of them are newbie friendly.
