Video2Brain CSS Positioning Free Sample Lessons

Positioning with CSS

HTML tags define page content in the browser. Before you add CSS properties to a div tag, it is necessary to assign an ID to the div tag to tell the browser which div tag you wish to change. Once an ID is added to a div tag, CSS properties can be added for that div. In this lesson we will explore how to assign CSS properties to a div tag.

Exploring CSS Positioning Trailer

CSS enables you to control the look and layout of a web page much more precisely than with HTML alone, but it can be time-consuming to learn. In this innovative workshop, Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs makes it quick and easy, walking you through the process of adding content to a web page and using CSS to position that content. You will learn CSS positioning concepts like the CSS “box model,” “floats,” and “clears,” and gain a deeper understanding of how HTML and CSS work together to create the look of your web page. By speaking the same language as the browser, you will learn to work with the browser to place content accurately and easily.

 Creating a CSS Rule for the Column

It will be much easier to see where the left div is located on the page if we create a CSS style rule for the div and add both a border and a width property to it. In this video we begin to build the style rules for the left div in order to control both the box and the content within the box.

Understanding the Float Property

This video demonstrates the float property and the two values available for this property in CSS. We will use a web page with three divs to play with the float property to demonstrate the CSS float property before we apply it to our web page for this course.
