"First CSS Tutorial"

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to complete the first css tutorial on how-to-build-websites.com. I'm working on a mac and I think the problem is when I have to save it. The practice HTML says for me to create a new text document and save it as "practiceHTML.htm. I did that but I'm writing this code in TextEdit because I don't have notepad. After I saved the document accordingly, an error comes up because the computer wants to save the file as "practiceHTML.htm.rtf" What do I need to change or do to make this work so I can view the webpage? Please help me!

Faiz:-

 

In TextEdit, you'll type in some HTML and have a window that looks like this:

TextEdit default view

This is not good because the program wants to work with Rich Text Format, not plain text (the ruler is the giveaway). To fix that, go to Format --> Make Plain Text and, voila! It'll look like this:

TextEdit plain text view

Much better!

 

Now, almost done (and you only have to go through this once: once the file is properly named, TextEdit will remember for future edit sessions). Choose File --> Save As... and type in a filename that includes a ".html" filename extension:

TextEdit save as html

Looks good. Click on "OK", though, and now you get this:

TextEdit use .html suffix

Click on "Use .html" and, finally, you're done!

Hi Megana04

 

I was once a newbie just like you. I hope that I will be able to assist you along the way.

I first started out designing Static HTML website, then went on to use Photoshop, CSS Coding into my websites and now I use all my knowledge when building and customizing a Joomla Content Management Website template.

 

Regards
