Learning a new language can be very fun and rewarding. With the right tools and the right resources, you set yourself for success right away! This is exactly what Elisabeth Robson and Eric Freeman give you in this HTML5 & CSS QuickLook Guide.
Armed with your favorite text editor and a keyboard, watch and learn as our web design experts teach you, step by step, the language of the web. You'll quickly become familiar with its unique terminology and "grammar". You see, web browsers speak fluent HTML & CSS, and so will you after watching this tutorial!
HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is to text what CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is to formatting and layout. CSS gives your web site a universal structure and form. Beth and Eric show you how to style your content, add borders to images on your page and then make them stand out and look their best.
But this just the beginning... there are many more courses on HTML & CSS on the way, where our MPV web design experts teach you to how to create a fully functional and interactive web site. Check out our growing library of web design courses below:

Your HTML & CSS 100 (Quick Start) is really great. After watching it, I now have an idea of what designing a web page is all about. Two important points for you to consider for improving the tutorials, especially for novices: (1) You should clarify what is the relationship between the text editor and the browser. For example, which browser can you use for testing the pages and how do you present the files to the browser. (2) Since you are jumping so rapidly in and out of a design text to add new tags, etc,. It is important to explain which part of the text a newly-added tag may have effects on. Otherwise, students may add the tag in a wrong position
Very viewer-friendly, and well paced introduction to CSS & HTML. Switching between two presenters helps keep it fresh.
The HTML and CSS quickstart course was indeed a good course, I learned a lot and feel more comfortable with the HTML/CSS language after just this course alone, and I am looking forward to learning more.
The information is taught very well and the graphics "in-between" lessons were more than effective at recapping and introducing the lessons. I look forward to completing the series!
This course is exactly what the title says; a quick look guide, good for a simple refresher and introduction to HTML and CSS.
This is an amazing introduction to HTML5 and CSS. I was used to work with tables 15 years ago and know I prefer this way much better. Will catch the next course for sure.

Very fundamental course in basic HTML and CSS. I am very happy to have my mind refreshed on the tuff I have learned many years ago. I will be watching the rest of it in the given time :) Thanks!
Incredible!!! Loved it! learned so much! can't wait to continue on to 101
So great to watch, really easy to understand, and just superb. Nice one guys, and thank you!
I really appreciated the pace of this. I've been unreasonably intimidated by CSS for I don't know how long. This is a great course that helped me see how attainable CSS and HTML5 are. I plan to watch the rest in this series since I probably run into situations at least every other day that this info will come in handy for.
the tutorial was fantastic. I learned a lot..I started designing my page fully in html5 and css. As I'm a musician composer, I'm waiting for the release of 104 course to complete and upload the page. Would like to know when is the course coming..
Awesome for beginners. But gets into a depth that even experts will get something out of. I love the speed of the presentation and gives enough detail for a person to be able to reproduce the results on their own without confusion.
Great content. Good pace. Nice introduction to the series. Really nice free offering!
An amazing introduction to HTML and CSS. This is the perfect tutorial to study before undertaking the 101 course. Many thanks to the creators for putting together an enjoyable, entertaining and accessible class.
