HTML And CSS In Web Design

First of all, let’s explain what is HTML. It stands for Hypertext Markup Language which enables programmers to organize and create the web site pages. It is “highly structured” meaning that it has clearly defined structure, rules and procedures that must be applied in order to create a responsive and effective web page. HTML enables:

-publishing online files that contain headings, tables, photos, text, lists and other

– retrieving information by hypertext links

-various templates and design forms that conduct transactions or perform search results

-reproduction of video clips, music or other applications.

All of these combined together create and present a website (or better say a virtual place) that offers a certain service or product.

What Is CSS?

CSS is language that describes the look of a web page: colors, layouts and fonts. CSS is responsible for the adaptation of the websites for different screens, whether we are talking about 23-inch IPS monitor or a 5-inch smartphone. CSS does not depend on HTML; it finds its use in other XML-based languages. This separation is precisely what gives developers space for more comfortable maintaining of the existing websites, as well as for the development in different environments.

How To Learn HTML And CSS?

You can start with simple Youtube videos to get familiar with the language. I recommend you to start with HTML since it is easier to understand CSS when you already mastered HTML. After you get familiar with basics and you become able to create a decent website, then start with reading advanced tutorials and books that are written by the acknowledgeable webmaster.

How Important Are HTML And CSS In Web Design?

With the latest technologies, you can create an amazing website without a single line of code, which means you don’t need to know how to use the above-mentioned languages. However, when you work on more complex projects where you need to tweak details, sometimes is not possible to change a parameter via a graphical interface or Divi builder; now you need to be familiar with HTML structure, CSS, tags and everything that is related to coding. The more you know about the language you are working with, the more things you can customize and create unique web presentation. Especially if you combine Javascript.
