If you're comfortable using HTML for marking up your content and CSS for styling it, you're ready to take the next step! The best way to become a front-end developer is practice, practice, practice. Let's get some more practice in by diving deeper into HTML5 and CSS3 and doing some more cut up.
HTML5 offers a number of new ways of marking up content more explicitly and additional features that allow even a simple webpage to behave more like a desktop application. CSS3 has more powerful selectors, new properties that can remove the need for tricks we used to do with images, and even interactive functionality and animations. The best part is that if you already understand HTML and CSS, using the new stuff is no more difficult than learning some new keywords and techniques!
