What will be the appearance of your site?
Before you start writing your website’s code, you must first design it. What information do you choose to highlight, what fonts (fonts) and what colors to use? In this article , we propose a simple method to plan the content and design of your site.
A website contains several types of files (text, code, styles, media, etc.). Building a website is like creating a structure where all of these files can interact with each other. In this article , we will detail this issue while explaining how to give a consistent structure to your website.
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the code that you will use to structure different content online. It allows you to create paragraphs, images, tables and much more. This article will give you the basics of language without making you crumble under the weight of unnecessary information.
The Cascading stylesheets , often referred to by the acronym CSS and which may be called in French “cascading style sheets”, can add style to your website. CSS rules allow you to define, for example:
- The color of a text;
- The place where the content should be displayed on the screen;
- What should be the background images or colors used to decorate your website.
