What is HTML & CSS?

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It’s the code that spells out and gives structure to the content in the webpages you see at your favorite web sites and in many applications – including mobile. HTML is the only language in which web content structure can be specified.

CSS, which stands for Cascading Style Sheets, adds style and visual flair to HTML determining how a page appears, including expanded fonts and text styling, backgrounds, layout, and much more.

Why learn HTML & CSS?

HTML and CSS are foundational building blocks of today’s internet, along with JavaScript. By mastering HTML and CSS, you’ll have the core coding skills to build your own web pages, as well as maintain pages built by others.
