ArabiamAmor, I should thank you for starting this and allowed me to share my knowledge with others. After all, I believe in Share of Knowledge (for free that is ). Allot of people restrict their knowledge, scared that others might learn and get higher jobs,values etc then them.

Anyhow, I am happy that you know the difference now. I would suggest either use that site to learn more about CSS or download some good CSS templates from online and read and alter the codings and see the changes. That way you'll learn much quicker.

Here is the website which has 355 CSS templates[http://www.freecsstemplates.org/]. You can download them, open them under Dreamweaver and read the CSS coding, change the colours, text styles or sizes and preview the web page. See what best suits your need and implement into your design.

Once you get hang of it, start building your own CSS sites.

Oh and you can open these CSS template codes in Notepad++ program as well. Though you can't view them in preview mode because Notepad++ is a text editor like Notepad.

Any problems just Shout!

Regards

No worries, just download a simple template first. Edit the text and keep checking how it looks like. Once you have learnt the tricks then start on changing codes to move the navigational panel from right to left and vice versa.

Slowly you will get hang of it and will be expert in CSS.

Any questions just throw at me and I'll throw back an answer...

I can perhaps understand a little of the codes, but goodheaven! How to switch what I allready did? And this program of mine NvU isn't good? It has in the menu a button for css and working in stylesheets,...
Or will you tell me I cannot see what I am doing in this program therefor I need to download another?

Afternoon! I don't think you need to switch between programs providing you can do those certain things which you like to do with it. However if the program has some limitations then it is worth moving to another instead of keep working on the same one with limited functionality.

I myself would not be able to explain fully about NvU (what functionalities,features etc) as I have not used it for enough time. However, if it has the section for CSS then I would say use that section to create CSS files, though if you have not used CSS before then download sample websites from the link given above and learn how it is being done.

This CSS thing is only to teach you more about how websites are being built and does not require you to change your website.

Let's say it is something extra for you to have a look at, however is Not must.

Hello,

<br> tag is used to put a break in line. It means the break/tag has no end within html. Here it is explained in more detail,
HTML BR TAG

As far as HTML validation is concern, if you have designed your website from Code up, then it will have meaningful errors which you can sort out by yourself as you would know where and what mistake you have made however if you have designed the website in a pure designed format then it will be hard to see what mistakes you have made.

In case of your link, if Styliste Wenda Rietveld Styliste Wenda Rietveld is your website then I have found around 19 errors. Please see link below which explains the error messages.

[Invalid] Markup Validation of http://www.wendarietveld.nl/ - W3C Markup Validator

Do I make sense here? I mean did I explain about <br> tag. You can certainly delete them if you can see you don't need any empty spaces there.

Regards

Jehanzeb,
ThanX.

I have seen my site at an apple and a pc and the apple shows me all the faults I think the link shows me. Hmmm.
An expert isn't such a bad luxery or,... a lot of time for the learning process.
