Default about web design

hi friends.....
what are the purposes of these: XHTML and CSS.

I know PHP is used to access databases and display them on websites using HTML. (as i wrong?)

similarly, what are the purposes of CSS and XHTML?
(2) Another thing I need to know is are all these languages (HTML, XHTML, CSS, PHP) all included in the Dreamweaver software?
can anybody tell me about this......
thanks

XHTML is HTML but which conforms to XML strictness. XML tools can be used within XHTML to parse data

CSS is styling language which allows the structure or scaffolding of a site (XHTML) be separated from the style of a site. Think of XHTML as the bricks in a house and then think of CSS as the paint that colours the house and determines how big the windows and the doors are going to be. Whats the kitchen going to look like etc

Dreamweaver does not install any languages. Dreamweaver is just a tool to help write them. You can use notepad to write these languages quite easily

you need to do a few CSS tutorials

i can show you how to do what you ask but i think its better that you study some tutorials which will cover most of what your after. Its will give you a good foundation and is probably a better direction to go
