Chapter 3. HTML: Hypertext Markup Language

The basis of every web site is the specification language it uses, HTML (HyperText Markup Language). It structures the sites, and the current version HTML5 can access hierarchical object models of the site, which are accessed via JavaScript. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) organize the graphic contents of the site.

Chapter 4. CSS: Cascading Style Sheets

CSS—Cascading Style Sheets—is a layout and formatting language that enables you to format markup languages such as HTML. Ideally the HTML document contains only semantic information and, with CSS, these will be formatted formatively and typographically.
