Lesson 2: CSS Basics (Presentation)

Outline

  1. Three ways to call CSS
  2. Syntax
  3. Text properties
  4. Units
  5. A Pseudo Classes (:hover)
  6. Colors

Example

This is the HTML plus CSS file that was built in class

Exercise

Create 5 different versions of your HTML from exercise 1. It makes sense to make an internal stylesheet and duplicate your HTML document 5 times. The emphasis on this exercise is to get you used to CSS syntax and to get you accustomed to looking up properties. You may have aesthetic ideas for the content, or you may apply properties and see how the page reacts. Either is fine. Try to create 5 very different solutions given the presentation CSS we have reviewed so far.

Please FTP your finished html files to a folder called “exercise2” and link to it from a post that you create on the class site. Be sure to assign the category “Exercise 2” to your post so it will show up alongside your classmates.
