9 Reasons You Should Know a Little HTML and CSS

Take your tech skills to the next level and you’ll be on your way to a more fulfilling career.

I must wholeheartedly support this article, because I’m living proof of it! I learned the basics of HTML and CSS about 17 or 18 years ago, and it’s SO easy! It’s taken my career to a completely different level as a result. Even now, there are people who think I’m brilliant simply because I know how to fix a table in HTML to present correctly. (Here’s the truth–I’m not brilliant at all! Good HTML tools and knowing basic coding is all that it is.) Would I call myself a developer as a result? Never! But, it does give me an advantage when working with developers that I understand just enough of what they do and how web pages work that I know when they are telling me the truth and when they are trying to fool me. As a technical communicator–or just ANYONE, in my opinion, should learn the basics, and this article gives some excellent reasons why. Like I said, I’m living proof of it!
