How to Get Started with Website Design HTML CSS Code
Designing a website from scratch can be a daunting task, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the coding languages used to create it. HTML and CSS are two of the most important coding languages for website design, and understanding how to use them is essential for any aspiring web designer. This article will provide an overview of HTML and CSS and explain how to get started with these coding languages.
What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, and it is the language used to structure a web page. It is made up of elements that define the content and layout of a page, such as headings, paragraphs, images, lists, links, and more. HTML is the foundation of any website, and it is essential for any web designer to understand how to use it correctly.
What is CSS?
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, and it is the language used to style a web page. It allows you to control the look and feel of your website by defining colors, fonts, layouts, sizes, and more. CSS works in conjunction with HTML to create a visually appealing website that looks great on any device.
Getting Started with HTML & CSS
The best way to get started with HTML & CSS is by taking an online course or tutorial. There are many free resources available online that can help you learn the basics of coding quickly and easily. Once you have a basic understanding of HTML & CSS, you can start building your own websites from scratch or using existing templates.
Learning how to use HTML & CSS can seem intimidating at first but with some practice and dedication it can become second nature. With a little bit of effort you can become an expert web designer in no time.

... a fragmented slide.
There's different types of fragments, like:
fade-right, up, down, left
Highlight red blue green
You can select from different transitions, like: None - Fade - Slide - Convex - Concave - Zoom
Set data-background="#dddddd" on a slide to change the background color. All CSS color formats are supported.
Tiled backgrounds, video backgrounds, ... and gifs, background transitions.
Different background transitions are available via the backgroundTransition option. This one's called "zoom".
You can override background transitions per-slide.
Since reveal.js runs on the web, you can easily embed other web content. Try interacting with the page in the background.
- No order here
Fantastic Ordered List
- One is smaller than...
- Two is smaller than...
These guys come in two forms, inline: The nice thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from and block:
“For years there has been a theory that millions of monkeys typing at random on millions of typewriters would reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. The Internet has proven this theory to be untrue.”
You can link between slides internally, like this .
There's a speaker view . It includes a timer, preview of the upcoming slide as well as your speaker notes.
Press the S key to try it out.
Export to PDF
Presentations can be exported to PDF , here's an example:
Set data-state="something" on a slide and "something" will be added as a class to the document element when the slide is open. This lets you apply broader style changes, like switching the page background.
Additionally custom events can be triggered on a per slide basis by binding to the data-state name.
Take a Moment
Press B or . on your keyboard to pause the presentation. This is helpful when you're on stage and want to take distracting slides off the screen.

How to Create Beautiful HTML & CSS Presentations with WebSlides
This article was peer reviewed by Ralph Mason , Giulio Mainardi , and Mikhail Romanov . Thanks to all of SitePoint’s peer reviewers for making SitePoint content the best it can be!
Presentations are one of the best ways to serve information to an audience. The format is short and sharp, made up of small, digestible chunks, which makes any topic under discussion engaging and easier to understand. A presentation can contain all kinds of data, represented by many different elements, such as tables, charts, diagrams, illustrations, images, videos, sounds, maps, lists, etc, all of which lends great flexibility to this medium of expression.
Particularly on the web, presentations come in handy on many occasions, and there are loads of tools at your disposal to create some nifty ones. Today, I’ll introduce you to WebSlides — a small and compact library with a nice set of ready-to-use components, which you can leverage to build well-crafted and attractive web presentations:
WebSlides “is about telling the story, and sharing it in a beautiful way.”
In fact, one of WebSlides’ main benefits is that you can share your story beautifully and in a variety of different ways. With one and the same architecture — 40+ components with semantic classes, and clean and scalable code — you can create portfolios, landings, longforms, interviews, etc.
Besides, you can also extend WebSlides’ functionality by combining it with third-party services and tools such as Unsplash , Animate.css , Animate On Scroll , and so on.
WebSlides is easy to learn and fun to use. Let’s see it in action now.
Getting Started with WebSlides
To get started, first download WebSlides . Then, in the root folder, create a new folder and call it presentation . Inside the newly created presentation folder, create a new file and call it index.html . Now, enter the following code, which contains the needed references to the WebSlides’ files (make sure the filepaths correspond to the folder structure in your setup):
Now, you’re ready to go.
Create a Web Presentation with WebSlides
In this section you’re going to create a short, but complete presentation, which explains why SVG is the future of web graphics. Note: If you are interested in SVG, please check my articles: SVG 101: What is SVG? and How to Optimize and Export SVGs in Adobe Illustrator .
You’ll be working step by step on each slide. Let’s get started with the first one.
The first slide is pretty simple. It contains only one sentence:
Each parent <section> inside <article id="webslides"> creates an individual slide. Here, you’ve used two classes from WebSlides’ arsenal, i.e., bg-gradient-r and aligncenter , to apply a radial gradient background and to align the slide content to the center respectively.
The second slide explains what SVG is:
The code above uses the content-left and content-right classes to separate the content into two columns. Also, in order to make the above classes work, you need to wrap all content by using the wrap class. On the left side, the code uses text-subtitle to make the text all caps, and text-intro to increase the font size. The right side consists of an illustrative image.
The next slide uses the grid component to create two columns:
The snippet above shows how to use the grid and column classes to create a grid with two columns. In the first column the style attribute aligns the text to the left (Note how the aligncenter class on the <section> element cascades through to its .column child element, which causes all text inside the slide to be center aligned). In the second column, the browser class makes the illustrative image look like a screenshot.
In the fourth slide, use the grid component again to split the content into two columns:
In this slide, place half of the content to the left and the other half to the right using the content-left and content-right classes respectively:
In this slide, use the background class to embed an image as a background with the Unsplash service . Put the headline on light, transparent background by using the bg-trans-light class. The text’s color appears white, because the slide uses a black background with the bg-black class, therefore the default color is inversed, i.e., white on black rather than black on white. Also, for the text to be visible in front of the image, wrap it with <div class="wrap"> :
In this slide, put the explanation text on the left and the illustrative image on the right at 40% of its default size (with the alignright and size-40 classes on the <img> element). For this and the next three slides, use slideInRight , which is one of WebSlides’ built-in CSS animations:
Do a similar thing here:
This slide also uses a similar structure:
Here, divide the content into left and right again. In the second <p> tag, use the inline style attribute to adjust the font-size and line-height properties. Doing so will override the text-intro class styles that get applied to the element by default. On the right side, use <div class="wrap size-80"> to create a container for the SVG code example:
Here, leverage some of the classes you’ve already used to illustrate browser support for SVG:
In this slide, show some of the use cases for SVG in the form of an image gallery. To this end, use an unordered list with the flexblock and gallery classes. Each item in the gallery is marked up with a li tag:
This section shows a typical SVG workflow, so you need to use the flexblock and steps classes, which show the content as a sequence of steps. Again, each step is placed inside a li tag:
For each step after the first one, you need to add the process-step-# class. This adds a triangle pointing to the next step.
In the last slide, use another one of WebSlides’ built-in CSS animations, i.e., zoomIn :
Congratulations! You’re done. You can see the final outcome here:
See the Pen HTML and CSS Presentation Demo with WebSlides by SitePoint ( @SitePoint ) on CodePen .
Et voilà! You have just created a beautiful, fully functional and responsive web presentation. But this is just the tip of the iceberg, there’s a lot more you can quickly create with WebSlides and many other WebSlides features which I didn’t cover in this short tutorial.
To learn more, explore the WebSlides Components and CSS architecture documentation , or start customizing the demos already available to you in the downloadable folder.
Then, focus on your content and let WebSlides do its job.
