REVIEW

- HTML



<!-- this is a comment in HTML -->

*LINK 2 PAGES TOGETHER*

<a href="name_of_page.html"> Link to a webpage </a>


Headings:
<h1> </h1>

<em>, <i>, <strong>, & <b>


div tags:
<div id="name">






*CHECK HOMEWORK*




CSS

-Example #1: (W3 schools)

-CSS Syntax

***External Style Sheets

<link href="365.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" >



Hexadecimal System
(RGB)




More CSS

Center divs using CSS:

#wrap{
text-align:left;
max-width:1000px;
min-width:600px;
margin-left:auto;
margin-right:auto;

width:60%;
background-color:white;
padding:10px;
}

****changing the background with CSS


....... CSS3:

html{
height:100%;
overflow-y: scroll;
background: url(images/bg.gif) no-repeat center center fixed;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;
}


Google fonts
why not use "daFont.com" ?

ID vs. Classes
* htmldog.com


* CSS styles can be applied to general page elements, CSS Classes, and specific items:

img { border: solid #000 10px; }
this applies to every image tag in the HTML document

.classy { color: red; }
this applies to a CSS class called classy.
<span class="classy" > Example of classy red text </span>

#about { background-color: #ccc; }
This rule applies to just the specific element that has an ID value of about:

<div id="about"> About stuff goes here </div>
