Hi, I want to start with programming and was thinking of HTML as the simplest one (is it?). I found this website where it is explained in chapters about different things. http/www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp
So I have questions, how is CSS connected to HTML and what is a good html program for ubuntu (such as Notepad++ on Windows)
CSS is sort of an addition to HTML and allows for easy defining of characteristics.
There are many text editors for linux and many people are very religious about them. Two of the main ones you hear about are Emacs and VI. There is also many more; too many to list. The closest to notepad++ out of the box is sublime text editor.
Thanks for the reply. So CSS is used mostly nowadays? Or it can be replaced with something else, for example will these two codes be any different and displayed the same in all cases:
<p style="font-family: arial;">Jack of hearts.</p>
<p><font face="arial">Jack of hearts.</font></p>
Of course the first one seems simpler but does it make a difference?
Also I heard of Gedit on Linux. And roughly how many tags are there in HTML? Are those all tags there is on this webpage on the left side http/www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_wbr.asp ?
Gedit is the editor that comes with GNOME. Its pretty good once you get the plugins and environment setup for your looking. There is also Geany, Kate, SciTE and many others.
HTML5 and CSS3 are what you should be trying to learn. Think of HTML5 providing a overall layout and CSS providing styling to the layout, ie colors, shadows, border sizes, etc. They are used in conjunction!
CodeAcademy has tutorials/courses for all three of the above as well as more advanced web development. The Mozilla Developer Network should be your bookmark for reference material (not tutorials) once you've got the hang of things. Don't bother with W3Schools for anything. It has been superseded by better resources.
