How to Use CSS for Page Layout

  • The file used for this lesson is located in the extras folder within the course files and is called html-css-layout-cc.jpg
  • HTML and CSS work together in the browser to create page layouts
  • This file explains how HTML and CSS work together to create these layouts
  • In order to work with page layouts using CSS, we use a combination of html div tags, a tag that represents a division of content, or other HTML tags that are now available in HTML5
  • Styles get assigned to those divs or tags by assign a name using an id to that content area or div
  • Once we have named an area of the page using an ID, we can then tell the browser where and how to display that content on the page
  • This takes 2 steps
    • HTML portion-Create the html tags and place content inside those tags
    • CSS portion-Give each tag  on the page a unique name and create styles that tell the browser how to display each tag
