I thought HTML was pretty easy to learn back in the days of FrontPage. I'd
be at a distinct disadvantage in today's marketplace if I didn't know
something about it. For example, I have many digital profilesâa key one
being an association to which I belong. Its GUI creation tool is one thing,
but it only takes one so far. Like Dreamweaver, being able to flip over to
the code view lets me tweak things.just.so.

Today you have the excellentâand freeâw3schools.com. And HTMLgoodies.com is
a terrific site as well. In addition to its wealth of info (and forum),
whenever I need some JS to do something that's where I get it. Again, cost
= 0.

CSS, on the other hand, is a bit of a PITA. I learned a bit of it at my
last FT gig and can say that's it's nice to have an idea how it works, too.
That said, it reminds me of my AutoCAD days, in that one really needs to
work with it on a steady basis lest from CRS set in.

Faced with building a responsive design website for my business back in
January, the daunting CSS challenge is why I looked at WordPress and
Squarespace, ultimately settling on the latter. But even in Squarespace I
make use of my HTML knowledge, along with picking up Markdown to make some
other things happen.
