    Go to w3schools site and start tinkering. They provide a way for you learn how to use CSS online through reading about the different uses and then you can try them out at the same time to make sure you understand what you just read about. Just an FYI - you should have some understanding of HTML which can be learned at the same time from their site. Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,
    IamNTB

    I agree. You should just use resource sites and in my opinion w3schools is one of the best and most detailed with examples and syntax.

    Also, develop in FireFox or Chrome and then verify in IE. And definitely use the FireFox extension called Firebug which really helps you see how CSS properties cascade and get set.

    Try these sites
    http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp
    http://www.cssbasics.com/
    http://webdesign.about.com/od/css/Cascading_Style_Sheets.htm
    http://code.he.net/
    Anyway, you can use uncle google to find many interesting sites about learning css.
    And do not use just notepad (it is a struggle to work with it), at least notepad++ or something where you will have syntax coloring/highlighting, numbering lines, searching and replacing text and etc.
    And of course do not use What You See Is What You Get editors (wysiwyg).

    No. You're all wrong. Use w3schools instead.

    Hi habreza,



    The links that Piotr Aszoff provided are basic and very useful. But I know not everyone likes to read, I learned faster watching videos and following more simple tutorials. It helped me a lot to just try to customize my personal blog thinking about as a hobby and not as an obligation or a boring duty. I use w3chools to consult the exact way to declare some things but with the time you you won't need it.


    Good luck :)

    Hi, i am new to website building, and i do understand HTML, but after an analysis by W3C Mark up service i have errors everywhere, all to do with CSS. i never heard of CSS until i went to this site. I copied and paste the HTML friendly to get me through this, but i am having trouble freeing errors that are codes for facebook like buttons, codes that i have been told to copy and paste into the body of my site. Any help?

    Being new to website building you must try to learn some basic CSS first and W3school dot com is the best place to learn the same. If you are comfortable with basic css code then you can go for the advanced level Css. You must try coding some easy website layout first and then try to Code psd to html which will be best practice.

    To practice you should definetely hit up CSS Zen Garden.
    It's a really nice way to practice & enjoy pure-CSS design.

    There are a lot of resources available on the Net to learn CSS. The best way to learn CSS for beginner is http://www.w3schools.com/css/.
    After knowing basic of CSS you can search more advanced material, video tutorial available on online.
