links that helped me build this site
brackets.io: code editor. very handy! got a live preview tool.
w3schools: extensive intro and guide to html/css, also includes specific how-tos such as how to make a navbar!
MDN web docs: a more thorough explanation of html/css. more on the technical side. i used it to search up functions, etc.
html color codes: handy tool to get html, hex, rgb and hsl color codes.
