Design HTML Layout Step by Step

Layout HTML is basically combination of DIV, Span, Table with CSS Style

If you are designing html page layout for the first time then you may find using html table is the easy option, but for better rendering and performance using div and span is always recommended

Sample HTML Page Layout

Note here we have used few div tags with different height and color properties

Left Navgation
<h1>Header 1</h1>
Content Goes Here <h2>Header 2</h2>

In above layout we have used div and in-line css, so that you can make changes easily and practice, but in real time you should avoid using inline css, rather create a css class and then call by name

Header DIV tag code, You can add business punch line, logo, quick navigation links inside this DIV.

<div style="padding:15px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;border-bottom:solid 1px #cbc8c8;background-color:#0c79ff">

Left Navgation DIV tag code, If you want to keep left navigation, use this div, you also can remove this completely

<div style="float:left;width:20%;min-height:300px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;padding:10px;background-color:#0c79ff"> 
Left Navgation

Middle Container DIV tag code with some content inside.

<div style="float:right;width:76%;min-height:300px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;">
<h1>Header 1</h1>
Content Goes Here
<h2>Header 2</h2>

Write the following div to clear off all floating effect of earlier div, remember whenever you use any “float” attribute in div, then after that you must use “clear” attribute

<div style="clear:both;"></div>

Footer Navgation DIV tag code

<div style="padding:15px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;border-top:solid 1px #cbc8c8;background-color:#0c79ff">Footer</div> 

Here are the all code together to create the page layout

<div style="padding:15px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;border-bottom:solid 1px #cbc8c8;background-color:#0c79ff">
<div style="float:left;width:20%;min-height:300px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;padding:10px;background-color:#0c79ff"> Left Navgation
</div> <div style="float:right;width:76%;min-height:300px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;"> 
<h1>Header 1</h1> Content Goes Here
<h2>Header 2</h2> </div> <div style="clear:both;"></div> <div style="padding:15px;font-size:15px;text-align:center;border-top:solid 1px #cbc8c8;background-color:#0c79ff">Footer </div>
