HTML 4.0 and XHTML for CSS teaches you how to use markup the standards-based way. By working through a web development project you will learn all you need to know to create a site that is ready to be styled with CSS. If you've tried using CSS in the past and found that it "didn't work" then this is the course for you. No expensive software is required - one of the many benefits of learning how to hand code your web pages.
I've followed some of their other courses and they're rather good. Enjoy!
Has anyone worked thru all their courses? What
did you think?
Moreover, for future referral purposes, would
working thru all their courses be all a newbie
to web development needed for putting up personal
sites for family and friends?
Wondering what the best learning source for referral
purposes would be.

I found the HTML Goodies site easy to learn from, but I fear that I learned a rather old fashioned approach. I suspect that most of the tutorials were written some time ago, with HTML 3.2 in mind, and then sort of upgraded to reflect the "new" HTML 4. As a result CSS is described as a separate topic, and is not at all integrated with the HTML.
A site that does integrate them is the HTML With Style tutorials at the WebReference.Com site, somehow it failed to inspire me.
I will defintely check out the westciv course, it may be just what I want.
Thanks for the word up. I always seem to come into those WestCiv courses too late, now we're right on time.
W3Schools is an excellent environment to learn in like Papabaer says...you don't even have to worry about opening up a new browser window to test examples.
I'd like to add glish.com and subsequent links such as bluerobot.com to the mix as well...all excellent places to get started.
