A very useful site for helping out in the HTML department is www.htmlhelp.com. BrainJar's guide to CSS positioning is very good.

A better site is www.htmlhelp.com's style sheet page but the basics are to try the following:
LINKreference in the
HEADsection of your HTML along the lines of
style.css(the choice of file name is your own, it should be available as though it were a normal page) with your style statements, for example
BODYof the document to have a sky-blue colour, you could also type the following HTML:
warningis restricted to the tag
erroris not restricted.
There is a full list of the possible style attributes here.

Browser compliance to CSS standards is considerably poorer than their compliance to HTML standards, which isn't good. Features, therefore, abound and I'll document a couple here.
|IE6 not displaying CSS floated objects|
A very subtle one, this. Take an object, perhaps a
div or an
img which you want to float to
provide a neat collection of related objects. A photo album, say.
When you come to view this, potentially you won't see a thing.
Maybe, if you're lucky a few images might pop out of the side of the
containing block. The problem lies with a lack of position.
Without a relative position, IE6 gives the object a
z-index of something less than 1. This means that the
background will be over the top of the objects (other than those that
peek out the side). An easy fix:
