Final Thoughts!

Where to from here.

Introduction

This is the final section in this tutorial on CSS. I'd like to use it to briefly summarise some of the main points and discuss where you should go from here.

After reading through this tutorial you should now have a very solid foundation in writing elegant CSS to style web pages. It is really just the tip of the ice-berg however. For some of you that will be enough for your needs, for others it is the starting point for further discovery.

What you have learnt

You've now got a basic understanding of how to write CSS to style your web pages and how to include it in your HTML. Remember that the combination of methods you use to include your CSS and the combinations of selectors within that CSS can have quite an impact on how easy it is to maintain those pages and also how well they perform.

Where to from here?

Practice and exerience are they key to mastering writing good CSS. Over time you will naturally get better and better.

For a lot of you, you will also wish to take your knowledge even further. There are many more you can do with CSS which will allow you to create even more interesting content.

You may also be interested in learning more about SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) if you have a desire to get your content noticed by search engines. It is a very interesting and creative area to explore and CSS can actually be quite useful. (Just don't get sucked into any black hat SEO, it will hurt you in the long run.)

Final Word

Ok so you've worked through my CSS tutorial. Congratulations, you've now aquired some very useful skills and knowledge. Next you need to gain experience. You've mastered the CSS basics and it will only get better with practice.
