The only way to get good at html is just like anything else....PRACTICE!! there is not easy way besides doing it with a WYSIWYG proggy....and those aren't half as rewarding as when you write your own html. TRY this site...its awesome!!

http://www.w3schools.com

study that for a while and youll be on ur way to authoring an awesome site.....

other than that...do just what you are doing...keep asking!!

That site is coded in PHP not HTML though it can obviously use HTML to call it, but it's coded in PHP

Editors are gettin very powerful. More people use them then write their own html IMO.

it's programming man, website design these days is Half Design and Graphics and the ohter half is the Programming, weather it be database backended or not......

for you, start with an Editor, Front Page express comes with windows for free start there...

or get Dreamweaver or Front Page 2000 etc....

Altema

Yeah i have Dreamweaver so im on a start. Yeah i realize that Most Webpages are 3rd Graphics 3rd Programming 3rd Design. I Guess its easier to take classes than to search.

I like to make webpages of pure HTML, but its much easier to not make webpages of pure HTML.

HTML is only capable of so much as it is really really limited, want to learn more about PHP.

http://www.php.net/

most importantly you should know that your host uses PHP/PERL/ASP.

id just go pick up a book...

dont expect to be coding like a master in no time, people spend years developing their webdeveloping skills.

bleh i spent 2 years just learning HTML4, i still suck.

Altema

Yeah lots of people have told me just to get a book. After not listening for a while i think ill just go get a book. Someday someone will be able to implant lessons in our head. Sighhhhhh not today. Someday......

Not the only one. Editers are usefull but when it blows up in your face if you dont know code your screwed. Learn the basics first, take the free ride later
