CSS training

Follow-up to A fun day out… hmmm from For blog's sake

Just for continuity purposes, I suppose I should mention what else I learnt on my Netskills training course yesterday…

Positioning with CSS

Page Flow
Positioning: Static, Relative, Absolute, Fixed
Stacking Order

Alternate Layouts, Standards and Browser Issues

Why use CSS?
Alternate Layouts
Media-specific Styles
Standards and Validation
Browser Issues

To be honest, I had kind of turned my brain off by the last session – my head was starting to hurt!!

However, all in all it was a very useful day, I wasn’t as confused as I expected to be, a lot of it was actually rather interesting, the practical tasks were kind of fun and I was rather impressed by what could be achieved with CSS.

A fun day out… hmmm

Well I am currently on a CSS course at Nottingham University.

It’s actually not as tricky as I thought it would be given my knowledge of html is very basic.

So far we have learnt…

The Basics

Internal Style Sheets
External Style Sheets
CSS for Colours and Fonts
< div > and < span > tags
Using Classes
Using ID

The Box Model

Width and Centering
More stuff about Boxes…

And now we are about to have lunch… phew!

Gah – maybe it is tricker than I thought… just writing what we have done here started to affect my formatting!

You can’t go throwing < div > and < span > tags around!

About me

My name is Ellie Lovell and I am the Web Editor in the Communications Office at the University of Warwick.

I started this blog in August 2005 when I started working at the University and have learnt a lot from it. I don’t update it so much anymore (I have been unfaithful to WarwickBlogs) but I hope you enjoy what is here…
