you just copy and paste the examples from w3schools and any other and then run then in IE or firefox,then you will get the output...
and try to edit the code in which way you want...
read the materials about html and css...
www.w3schools.com is best for begginners...


you just copy and paste the examples from w3schools

Copy & paste is not a way to learn for begginer. Always, always re-type the code. It doesn't matter if it is html, css, Java, C++ or any other. By typing it, you pay more attention what is happening inside the code, you built up on already existing knowledge by adding new blocks...

Completely agree with you. Very good advice.

Thanks Shanti Chepuru i think you have a point anyway thanks so much for the advise..


There are some great tutorials on the Internet about how to use Dreamweaver. The thing you should remember is that Dreamweaver is only an application for building web pages. It is not a language in itself.

You must first learn XHTML and CSS, then use the application to build pages. Dreamweaver is great on highlighting code to make it easier to develop. It also has a fairly decent visual builder, but the code generated from that is unorganized. So, when you have a problem, you need to go to Code view and decipher it. This is why a decent understanding of programming in XHTML and CSS helps.


What is CSS? it is a Cascading Style Sheet that allows you to apply presentation to ID and Classes. This way you only need to make a basic structure of your page in XHTML, then go to your style sheet to say how you want that code to look. It allows you to make changes quickly and in one place without having to go to every page and change the design.

In fact, it is so effective if done right, you can take the XHTML your developed for one site, add a new style sheet and the content is arrange to make an entirely new site that looks nothing like the original except for the content of the page.
