The Ultimate Guide to Creating a Design and Converting it to HTML and CSS


This screencast will serve as the final entry in a multi-part series across the TUTS sites which demonstrates how to build a beautiful home page for a fictional business. We learned how to create the wireframe on Vectortuts+; we added color, textures, and effects on Psdtuts+; now, we'll take our completed PSD and convert it into a nicely coded HTML and CSS website.

Please note that, even if you haven't read the first two tutorials, you'll be able to follow along with this video quite easily.


Please note that this tutorial series was originally posted on Nettuts+ about sixty days ago. However, it's recently come to my attention that many of you had trouble watching the screencast for Section 3. This has now been resolved. Enjoy!
