How to Develop a Website Using HTML and CSS?

If you think that html website development is a really big deal and you need a big quantity of expensive software , then you are a bit mistaken,if you are thinking about creation of a simple website, you need nothing, but TextEdit or Notepad that are already installed on your computer by default or such text editors like Sublime Text or Dreamweaver, actually I personally use Sublime text when filling website pages of my company with content. Although you are right when thinking about developing a complex website with Javascript coding or other things that make your website differ from others with a great number of colorful and out-of-the-way elements. But before starting figuring out and get in depth of the development, let me explain the differences between this two languages (CSS and HTML), the syntax of each and some terminology. SO..

What are exactly HTML and CSS?

How to develop a website using html and css without being knowledgeable in these two languages?

These are two independent languages and should remain that way. HTML cannot be written inside of a CSS document and conversely.
