The key is knowing what you want to produce and building your Flare project to meet the needs of the website or portal you’re developing.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Part 1: Introduction and Overview

Nov 18, 8:00-9:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar
Presenter: Mike Hamilton, VP of Product Evangelism | MadCap Software, Inc.

Presented as a three part series, join Mike Hamilton, VP of Product Evangelism, as he takes you through detailed presentations on the basics of Cascading Style Sheets.

CSS – the style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language – is an essential skill for technical writers and web developers. A strong understanding not only helps you as a MadCap Flare user, but can prove valuable for any author working in a HTML or XML-based authoring environment.

This webinar will introduce the fundamentals and basics of CSS. Mr. Hamilton will cover the various implementations of CSS, the components and construction of CSS rules, and the core fundamentals such as the cascade, the importance of understanding inheritance, and the often misunderstood CSS “box model”. If you are new to CSS, or if you are self-taught and you just want to make sure you don’t have any “rough edges”, this will be a perfect webinar for you.
