This course is a continuation of the CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) concepts learned in the prerequisite courses and begins with a review of the basic concepts and benefits of using CSS and then moves into more complex topics. You will design three different page layouts using element positioning, use CSS styled images, build data tables, and create print style sheets for your pages. Page designs will include vertical, horizontal, and multi-level CSS menus that include CSS3 features. Practical CSS techniques, such as best practices, code organization, commenting, shorthand, and accessibility, will be explored.
