Promotional Advertising - Understanding CSS Powered By Docstoc
					Learning web based promotional advertising can only be considered second nature
because one needs to learn the basic necessities of developing a completely functional
website before it can be promoted. Learning computer programming languages can be
kept to a minimum. It is not mandatory to understand them all, nor in-depth. The
basics will be adequate for the regular on-line business proprietor.
  There are 3 that should be considered and they are HTML, CSS, and PHP. People in
general cringe when they hear computer programming and shy away from what is a
necessary part of the business. Computer programming is considered a tool of the
trade and should be given huge respect because it is the main foundation to a
successful on-line business.
  CSS is a computer programming language that adds style to your web-site,
everything from different colors, images, margins, and borders. Think of CSS as
make-up for your web-site. Sure, web sites could exist without much styling or
customization but then the internet will be extremely dull. Don't presume that CSS is
something you will never need. Trust me, there is nothing worse than having quality
website content shrouded by a crummy, ugly layout and design.
  Colors are represented in the CSS language through different sets of what are known
as color codes. You may not have realized it, but you have most likely come across
these codes at some point in your web travels. For those that don't grasp CSS, do a
search on the web for CSS color code finder/picker.
  Now that you understand the colors, let's find out a little bit more about the layout
structure. Next to HTML, CSS is may be the next simplest language to learn and
understand. In a short period of time you will learn a large part of the language. For
those that need help, do a search on CSS primers and introductions for beginners.
  After learning HTML and CSS, you will have enough knowledge to develop a web
page that looks and functions essentially as you would like. In fact, if you're ready to
test out some code on a web page, do so. The best way to learn both HTML and CSS
is by actually doing it in day-to-day situations.
  Once you feel that you have mastered each one, ask yourself: "Do I Understand"?
  CSS color codes, the overall CSS syntax (layout structure), the basics of headers and
footers, how CSS can be combined with HTML and the types of things that can be
done with the combinations.
  Once you have completed these two programming languages, it will be time to move
on to the next and that being PHP. There are other languages such as Java, Perl, and
Python for examples, but PHP probably is the most commonly used.
  You do not need to understand every programming language, but you need to learn
the basics of the most common ones. Learn the names of the best ones and then try
and see which one is best suited for individual tasks. As you learn, take the crucial
things that standout the most and put them close, such as your desktop. This will let
you to locate the information more swiftly for future needs.
