What Is the Easiest Way to Learn XHTML and CSS for a Class in School Especially With So Many Things to Know?

by nForms on December 10, 2011

I have a project for the end of the term and with so many things to try and apply, is there an easier way or good websites to make the process a whole lot easier? It can get confusing at times because I'm not big on programming.

If you want to purchase a guidebook, I recommend Sam’s Teach Yourself XHTML/CSS in 24 Hours ($30-$40 USD). Comprehensive with a reference section, 1 hour per lesson (and you really only need the first 8 for the basics- of course, if you’re more interested, you can learn the rest). It’s very easy, helps you along, gives you examples and helpful questions/answers to test your knowledge.

If not, w3schools.com has some pretty good lessons and examples (where you can tweak the HTML and see instantly what it will do).

Hope this helps!

i have been using XHTML CSS for a long time now, and to be honest even now i still havn’t learned every single little detail + new methods of utilizing CSS is being found every day..

i can suggest the best method would be to just study a web-page, can be done on frontpage, w3schools, or any other html editor..
then tweak a bit of the code and see the result :O..

i tended to use frontpage (contained the html), and notepad (contained the CSS), then tweaked the css, then refreshed the preview page on Frontpage.. after a while you just get used to it and start to remember all the different processes and codes :O..

if you need website inspirations just go on google, and type something along the lines of ‘best CSS websites’, ‘best websites’ etc.. then look at the websites and try to understand how they did it..

hope it helps..

p.s. if you dont plan to extensively use CSS/XHTML in the future, do you really need to learn everything right now?
