Previously we have learned about the following html tags:
<a> = link tag
<img> = image tag
<p> = paragraph tag
<h1> = heading 1 tag
<body> = body of our page
During this chapter we will begin to build layout elements and manage basic positioning. When interfacing with CSS, web layout can be organized into blocks of code. The blocks of code are often called classes. A class does not hold value an initial value, rather a specific value assigned to each class.
A class is like a glass of water. The glass of water is transparent and does not hold specific taste properties. If a barista is trying to change the water into a sweet green drink, the barista will add green food coloring and sugar. Then the barista will give the glass of water a new title like Green River.
Similar to the barista mentioned above, a web designer can update, modify and create new containers of code to fit layout specifications.
