The Naked HTML Tutorial

Page 2 - CSS-Basics

If you have followed the steps on page 1 you have already created a Naked HTML box. You should even have included it into your website or blog. The only step left is the styling of the box which is done by using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).

Although the most frequent questions concerning Naked HTML are somehow related to CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) we are not trying to provide basic explanations for the CSS topic. The reason for this is that the topic is just too extensive and you will find lots of tutorials online for sure.

So if you don't know what CSS means, please have a look at this first or just google for "CSS".
