I am learning HTML and CSS through Cengage and honestly it ruins my life. I type in the code EXACTLY as the textbook has it, but apparently its still wrong

    Maybe the textbook as errors itself, that happens. Or it is outdated and modern browsers behave differently. Or it is misleading.

    Cengage can be a real bitch

    I'm using it for a database class and it's very fucking sensitive

    @devTea same. I actually enjoy html quite a bit. Its the cas portion that irritates me since it really does require a copious amount of study+discipline and eye for design which I do not have. Yet if someone hands me a photoshop design I can make it happen. I just don't enjoy design at all.

    I love frontend tools like React, Angular and Vue, programmatic frontend makes sense to me and it is fun af. But toying with css just makes everything annoying

    Html - you can write anything you want and it will work unless you are using html4 in strict mode - those were the painful days.

    Css - unless you knew what css 1,2 and 2.1, was then you probably don’t use css but only libraries with class selectors - css1 was the bomb and browser compatibility with css 2 was suicidal at best.😉
