[Link] Practical HTML and CSS

Posted 10 August 2011 - 11:04 PM

I was becoming increasingly annoyed with some of the tutorial sites interpretations of teaching HTML so I decided to start up my own tutorial series on this matter.

The first in the series is up currently, Practical HTML: The Basics.

Practical HTML: The Basics
Practical HTML: Page Structure

Practical CSS: The Basics
Practical CSS: Font
Practical CSS: The Box Model
Practical CSS: Floats and Positioning

Practical Web Design: Color Theory
Practical Web Design: Composition
Practical Web Design: The Mortal Sins

Tutorials in Planning:

Practical Typography: The Basics

Practical HTML5: What's new
Practical HTML5: Tips and Tricks

Practical CSS3: An Overview

Practical Javascript: The Basics
Practical Javascript: Objects and Functions
Practical Javascript: Forms and Validation

Practical jQuery: The Basics
Practical jQuery: Being Subtle

I'm still working on more ideas, any requests I'll take into consideration.

After I get done with this series I'll likely start into Unix and Sysadmin tutorials and other such ventures.

One thing in the tutorial that I find kind of odd: Why do you use a XHTML doctype?

I mean, there is no practical difference in using the XHTML doctypes over the HTML doctypes. Only when you set the proper XHTML content-type, and only in non-IE browsers, is XHTML even properly parsed. Otherwise browsers just revert back to parsing it as normal HTML. Why confuse the issue? (This is a HTML tutorial, after all :))

Also, your example markup is invalid XHTML. The meta tag isn't closed (which is a must in proper XHTML), and you have a typo in the anchor tag.
