Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)

One of the W3c's major efforts at peace keeping was to develop Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), a system that separates the content of a page (written in HTML) from the format written in CSS and in so doing allows for more complete control over the design of a Web page while keeping the page universal. In addition, CSS can be applied to several pages at once, Helping the designer save time by storing all the formatting in one file.

That was the theory, anyway. In practice, neither the Microsoft or the Netscape, despite having participated in the development of CSS, has gotten around to fully implementing it in their browsers. In fact, the browser that best supports CSS is a newcomer to the battle: Opera, developed in Norway by a company whose chief technical officer is Hakon Lie, one of the major forces behind CSS at the W3C.

The lack of universal support for CSS has not discouraged designers from using it, however. CSS's powerful formatting and layout capabilities have attracted designers in much the same way that Netscape's extensions did in their day. With much the same problems pages that work only on some browsers and that completely break down in others..

But in todays browser I think almost all browser already supports CSS.

Browser Wars

In 1994, Netscape put up the first fences on the Web in so-called browser wars. In order to attract users, they threw universality to the wind and created a set of extensions to HTML that only Netscape could handle. For example, Web surfers using Netscape could view pages with different size and color text, photographs in JPEG format, background color and images, and in later versions, Multiple pages in a single window, called frames. Surfers with any other browser would get errors and funny looking results. Or nothing at all.

But people liked those extensions so much that they flocked to Netscape. By June of 1996, it had become the most popular computer program in the world with 38 million users.

Microsoft soon joined in, and started putting a fence in its own chunk of the Web. Again, to attract users they added non-standard extensions to HTML that only Internet Explorer, Microsoft's browser, could recognize.

So who do you design for? Netscape, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Flock users? It's a designer's nightmare and the web is suffering because of it.

Introduction to HTML

Before we go to our basic coding in HTML, Lets all start from the beginning.

All of the web pages are written in HTML, HTML lets us add graphics, sound, video and format text and then save it all in a text only or ASCII file the only a computer can read. The Key to HTML is in the TAGS keywords enclosed with (<) or Less Than and (>) Greater Than signs.

But today their is a lot of software programs that can create HTML codes like the most known Macromedia but the advantage in learning HTML on your own means you'll never be limited to a particular program's feature and you can add whatever you want without having to struggle with confusing software or wait for software updates instead you can use even NOTEPAD in making web pages.

Macromedia Preview...

In this Blog we will go over to the basic to advanced in HTML.

HTML or HyperText Markup Language has 2 essential features, the HYPERTEXT and UNIVERSALITY. Hypertext means you can create a link in a web page that leads the visitor to any other page and Universality means that HTML documents are saved as ASCII or Text Only Files virtually any computer can read a Web Page.
