Actually, this site http://www.w3schools.com does a great job teaching the very basics... My issue is always applying it within EasyWeb specifically.

I would recommend HTML Dog for a beginner who needs an easy start with HTML, CSS and perhaps a little understanding of what java script does and where to use it - rather than actually learning it.

http://htmldog.com/guides/html/beginner/

I have tried to explain in several posts in this forum where to paste the various types of script. The problem is that there are no hard and fast rules for every occasion. There are a lot of instances where you need to apply experience and a knowledge of code as well as some common sense.

Old school designers insist that you put java script in the HTML doc head whereas us "avant garde" folks would tend to put it in the footer area just before the closing body tag. There are exceptions of course.

CSS normally goes in the document head but you can use inline styles in an HTML Snippet. You have to be careful with CSS since adding the wrong thing in the right place (or the right thing in the wrong place) can screw up the styles of other objects.

When considering were to put various types of code you need to be aware of how the browser reads the HTML doc and how, and in what order, you want the various objects to load. You can't do this by blindly pasting code into boxes.

The basics are pretty much;

CSS/java script code go in the Head Code section (under Inspector->Page Settings).

HTML Code goes into the HTML Snippet.

Most scripts you will find will have CSS/java script code and will tell you to put that within the and tags. That is what the above Head Code section is for.

Then they will tell you to place HTML Code on your page wherever you want the code to show up. That is what goes in the HTML Snippet.

Side Note: Some scripts will recommend you put java script code before the ending tag which is what the Footer Code field is for. You can do that also if the code you have recommends that. Usually when it comes to java script code it doesn't matter which field you put it in, but CSS should always go in the Head Code field.

Hmmm - I guess you must be "old school"?

Yelena, Codecadamy is another great side to learn html ... css (and more). The good thing about this side is, that you get instructions, and an editor in the browser where you can follow those instructions step by step and you'll see the results immediately. That helps me a lot to understand how some basic html and css works and behaves. I'm still a beginner though, but this side sure helps a lot.

For a beginner in the coding field, it is pretty mu required to have a basic knowledge and in that case students can take help from youtube. After gathering some basic knowledge, candidate can enroll their name in https://eduhelphub.com/ which provides free coding online class with highly expert guidance.
