This hands-on workshop provides an overview of using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in the web publishing process. The purpose, structure, and location of style rules in a website are introduced. You'll learn how to code basic style sheets for inline, embedded, and external rules; methods to reference the style rules in the HTML syntax; how to use Class and ID selectors and pseudoclass selectors; CSS syntax for text, images, backgrounds, and hyperlinks; The Box Model for a page layout design; and a flexible container design for device and browser compatibility. Students will practice developing style rules to design and format a website presentation.
(This is part of the Digital Design Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
