  • This location is shown only to members

This will be a very focused meeting on HTML and CSS for beginners. I'll host this meetup and will have a loose agenda, but please bring questions, problems, code examples. There's wireless, so if you have a laptop, feel free to bring it too. Topics:


  • HTML & XHTML - How to write semantic markup, the foundation of your site's content.

  • Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) - How to style your HTML markup with simple CSS.

  • Squashing common CSS browser bugs.


Location We'll be in the smaller Library conference room this week. Since it's quite a bit smaller, we're going to limit the number of attendees to 8, so please RSVP quickly if you'd like to attend.

    There's a ton to know about CSS and HTML, but as always, I came away with a better understanding (esp. of CSS). Thanks, Eric!

    I 2nd Susan's recommendation.

    I have attended many of the CreativeTechs live webinars and even purchased their InDesign 10-week class recently. Jason Hoppe (has done Photoshop and InDesign classes) is amazing! I call him the God of Photoshop & InDesign. Is there anything he doesn't know?! I've also tried a couple of the Dreamweaver and Flash webinars but that instructor, Erik Fadiman, is a bit too quick for me.

    I highly recommend these webinars!

    Enjoyed a "getting back to basics with HTML & CSS" discussion. Such a welcoming and relaxed group with a very knowledgable and generous Organizer. I am fortunate to be a member!

    We covered HTML/XHMTL and CSS from the ground up. We had some great discussion about the need for semantics in HTML markup, Web Standards, separating content from presentation and behavior.
