Hello everyone!

GRANS Studios is looking for a web designer. We already have one that is helping us, but he's trapped into school dutyes and won't be abble to work for a while.

We're looking for someone abble to help him and take over the site development.
Since GRANS is a small comunity that lives by donations, we won't be abble to pay for your job, so you'll be doing this for pleasure and for free :tongevil:

For more informations, please PM me (i'll be travelling untill day 24th, but i'll try to answer the PMs as soon as i can if anyone is interested)

Visit us: http://grans-productions.com/

Thanks in advance,

-Gen.Kenobi
GRANS Founder

Since you only need a small simple site, I'm going to recomend you try to learn a little HTML & CSS. You won't need to know much and its all pretty straightforward (kicks IE6 back under the rug).
If you ask for someone to do it forward, good luck. If you make an effort then ask for help, however...

Then I can recomend the following as good places to start.
  • Opera Web Standards Curriculum - fairly long, but covers everything at a basic level, and well written
  • HTML Dog - older but solid instruction
  • [url="http://"http://www.w3schools.com/'"]W3 Schools[/url] - sometimes lacking but a good resource
I am currently busy writing a new web standards course for Deakin University, but am free enought to answer any questions you might have if I'm online (MSN).

So....yeah, today i started with the HTML Dog Tutorial: HTML For Beginners and it's great! Explained for me a lot of things amd it's quite easy with some practise.

I'm now going to try CSS for Beginners.

Thanks Jeeves!

The main thing to remember is HTML is, ideally, a semantic language, its just there to describe content. If I give you a piece of paper with big bold text at the top, you'll assume its a header. If you give it to a datamining bot or computerlator, it'll just be some OCR text. So all HTML really does is say its a header, or paragraph, or link.

An easy mistake to make is to code to fit a design and add elements to match, but if you just stop and think about each little part of your page, and what element describes it best, its almost hard not to end up with high-quality standards-complient accessable markup - perfection is just a matter of not doing anything wrong.

CSS, however, has no quick-and-easy concepts to save your life, but make sure you understand specificitity (now, say "CSS Specificitity" five times fast) because it'll save a lot of confusion when you might not know why somethings not working. Browser debuggers like Opera's Firefly, Webkits HTML Inspector of Firebug for FF are great for looking at what styles are being applied to elements and where those styles are coming from. Play around and you'll pick it up
