Welcome to Simple Egg Design!If like me you are just starting out in Web Design and are at a loss of where to begin then look no further...I may just be able to help.
For us novices, the world of the world wide web can be a little daunting. There's a lot of tecnical jargon and also many aspects to web design, so finding a starting point amongst it all is no mean feat.
My first project therefore see's me taring apart all of the information I have gathered and relaying it in the simplest terms possible to help others overcoming the initial hurdles of web design. It's actually much simpler than you would have thought!
As I learn more I'll add additional resources and extra chapters to my site, so keep an eye on my blog, follow me on Twitter, and come back for another visit in the future.
I hope you find my site usefull!

Well it does what is says on the tin. Here I have detailed a bit of info on how to get your sites up and running on to the World Wide Web.
CSS or "Cascading Style Sheets" has become a very popular tool for web designers due to it's ability to simplify and seperate the design of your web pages from it's content. It is another set of code that you insert or attach to your HTML file to style your HTML content. Having a single file that sets the design of your whole web site is a real benefit so here I will detail a little to get you started.
