CSS3 A Beginner’s Tutorial 1


Sharing is caring!

As many of you may have already know, cascading style sheets – CSS for short, allow you to have creative control over your web-pages, as far as the layout and the design of those pages is concerned.

Eye-catching headlines, drop caps, and borders, can be customized with CSS, to help you dress up your web pages.

In today’s article, we are going to talk about CSS3, and give a brief summary of the type of HTML you need to know, to write your CSS files

Images can be arranged with precision, columns and banners can also be created without hassle, and links can be highlighted with rollover effects which are considered dynamic.

What CSS can do to Elements

Elements can also fade in and out of view, objects can be moved around the page, and a button, can change colors, when a visitor hover over it.

You will think that a website technology which gives users the ability, to perform all of what we just described above, would be hard or difficult to understand and use, right? Au contraire! CSS is very easy to understand, but you must have the experience needed, to finish a task on time.

CSS is a way to streamline, all of the pages design process, on an entire website with a single file. A designer must develop that file through various tools and resources available, in order to well design a web page.

CSS is not HTML, howbeit, it does work with HTML, but it is a different technology altogether.

CSS is not a programming language

You will find many other sources online, holding CSS at the same standard of a programming language, but this is not true here at King Info Life, we don’t consider CSS to be a true programming language.

You can disagree, is okay, we are not here to debate whether CSS is a programming language, or not, we are here to understand, how CSS works.

CSS is very useful

Anyways, back to the fact of the matter, CSS, which works hand-in-hand, with the web browser, to give HTML a better look, is part of what we would call today the website technologies.

HTML give the web page, the structure and the framework, which CSS can then dress up, to change up the look.

HTML is mainly used to define where the header, footer, banners, divs, tables etc., will be placed on the page.

For example, you might tell HTML to place a menu bar on a web page for you; and then use CSS to add the styling to that menu, whether it is going to be changing colors, when some one hovers over the links of the menu, and what happens to the link, once it is clicked, whether it changes colors too or not.

CSS gives users special online abilities

The alignment of any thing on your web page, can also be manipulated with CSS; and you can also add borders to divs, and images, as well as tables.

Users also have the ability to add a space margin, between elements, so that you are able to better place things on your web pages.

Users can also apply a style to a specific element, by using a class or an id, which can identify the element.

CSS can also be used to apply a style to all the URLs on the page, or texts, on the page, which has the tags around them.

So far we have talked about all the things that CSS is capable of doing, and there is so much more to talk about, but unfortunately, to keep you coming for some more, I have to stop now, and let you surf.

Thank you, for reading!!!
