2 Before you start with CSS, it may be helpful if you can watch the movies named xhtml_essentials.mov and color.mov available on the Blackboard. The name of this slide file is EricMeyerMovies.pp t . Irrespective of viewing or not viewing the movies, at the least read these slides for a particular movie when I refer to his movies. These slides contain my notes too. Notes: If possible view the movie: xhtml_Essentials.mov along with my documentation on the first movie in EricMeyerMovies.ppt. Then view the movie colors.mov along with my documentation on the 2nd movie in EricMeyerMovies.ppt After you have done it, come back to the next slide of this file. MyChapter3Part1.ppt

3 Ahmed’s Introduction to CSS (Motivation) Okay, you have been introduced to Notepad/Textpad and to certain XHTML elements (also known as tags). Now we will get introduced to the basic foundation of XHTML: this is called CSS. In this perspective, the author has done a good job in Chapter 3 (and in later chapters). Although the CSS coding is easy, its basic concepts may be somewhat confusing to new learners . There is a variety of ways to incorporate or accommodate a CSS to a XHTML source code. So, if you get confused, please let me know. A CSS is nothing but a set of specifications for decorating the content of the elements (such body, h1, p, table, div, etc.) of a Web page. CSS entries are cryptic. So, you will need to be patient and ready to burn some mid- night oil. MyChapter3Part1.ppt
