We all know how to style in word processors but too many writers seem reluctant to learn CSS techniques. In this webinar, Mike Hamilton shares five easily mastered CSS techniques to help and build confidence in writers at any skill level. Since the CSS language is the basis for modern markup languages, the more you learn about CSS the more it will benefit your career. Learn the basic techniques for the beginner, and some intermediate techniques for those more advanced. In addition, Mike will finish with a prototype CSS technique allowing for vocabulary control over your content in a Responsive Design situation. This webinar is adapted from a presentation originally presented during MadWorld 2017.
