The best Tutorials on Converting PSD to XHTML

In this post, I’m going to show you the most practical tutorials on coding a template using CSS and XHTML. Making a template has two steps. The first step is Designing the template components and the second step is Coding them into a valid XHTML page.


Creating a CSS Layout from Scratch

This tutorial from Subcide starts with a basic design and takes us through the steps of coding the site. Along the way there are plenty of code samples and screenshots as the example site progresses.


Slice a Template and Code it Using CSS

This tutorial is going to show you how to take a template (not create it) and slice it up in Photoshop and code it in complete CSS. No use of that tables crap, CSS is much faster then using tables, your pages will load a lot faster. Plus you have a lot more control over your templates, and your code will be a lot neater.


How To Create a Horizontally Scrolling Site

If web pages were made out of wood, the grain would be running up and down. Vertical is the natural flow of web layout. When page elements reach the right edge of the browser window and go over, the flow defaults to “wrapping” that element down onto the next line. The more content on the page, the taller it gets, not the wider. Why is this? Because it just makes sense. Our eyes are used to reading fairly short lines of text, so if we were to see a paragraph of text in one long straight line, it would be painful to read. Paragraphs need to have line breaks in them to be readable (hence the term “blocks” of text). We sure as heck don’t want to hard-code line breaks into the markup ourselves. Obviously, we don’t have to, the browser does this wrapping for us. Thus the vertical expansion.


Coding Your 1st PSD Tutorial

HV Designs previously published a tutorial for creating a car sales layout in Photoshop, and this tutorial is a follow up to cover the process of coding the site. It’s a fairly detailed tutorial with the coding provided.

Word Press being the biggest advantage for building quick and customizable sites. I’m sorry I spent so much money on that site.

For simple designs I would recommend to try out an automatic PSD to HTML layout conversion service – http://psd2htmlconverter.com/en/ . I’m getting quite good results with it. But hand coding should be preferred for complex designs though.

html to pdf August 10, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Converting files from other format to PDF is a wise idea if you want to create E-books for selling or making contract or some government report. Adobe Acrobat is the king when creating PDF files but editing files with Adobe Acrobat is not as convenient as Microsoft Office.
