Resources for Learning HTML and CSS
If you’re unfamiliar with HTML, there are three resources for learning that are free and hard to beat. The first is the WW3 School — which is where I learned to code in 1991. It is still a great resource. CodeAcademy is a bit more sophisticated — and it’s a freemium resource. This means that they give you some good stuff for free, but will be marketing more intensive courses.
CodeAcademy’s main advantage is its tight structure and “hand-holding” techniques. If you screw up enough times, it will give you answers. I loved it for the CSS class; for HTML I prefer the WW3 school–this maybe because this is where I learned so many years ago.
A third resource I haven’t worked with much before is Mozilla’s HTML tutorial. It’s not as thorough as WW3, but if you don’t like the “lock-step” method of teaching in CodeAcademy–or you just need some refreshers, tips and tricks, the Mozilla page is certainly a winner. I’ll definitely be using their advanced HTML tips in future tutorials!
