CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
If you wish to present your web pages in a pleasant way to your users then you will need to dive into Cascading Style Sheets, style sheets allow you to tell the browser the format, colour, font and many other properties of the HTML tags that reside on the page. Style sheets use either TAG, ID OR SELECTOR styling guideline references, you can read more about the W3C CSS Specifications.
If you wish to build simple web pages HTML and CSS are all you need, you could build a web site with any number of pages and include a nice template, text and images. You may use the <a> tag to navigate through your web site and CSS (Modern CSS3 especially) provides ways in which you .may include smooth transitions and Hardware rendered display manipulation. With @media CSS rules you may even create a responsive web site that can be viewed on mobile devices.
