Laying the Foundation

Before you dive into CSS, your Web page needs markup structure to work with. Since you’re reading this book, you’ve likely heard of the separation of structure and presentation. For those unfamiliar with the idea, one of the main advantages of CSS-based design is that it enables you to hook in to a well-written document structure and add an extra layer of styling to make it attractive.
