Section B.14. Some Final Thoughts

B.14. Some Final Thoughts

Consider how your page will be used. If people have to read a lot, they don't want attention-getting elements distracting them. Finally, here are a few general tips to keep in mind:

  • The current standard for HTML tags is lowercase.

  • Container is the jazzy new word for any HTML element (<P>, <TD>).

  • With the advent of style sheets, <DIV> is the hip new tag. Its main use is as a container to identify style elements you've created and named yourself versus the standard type shown in the style example. It's one of those complex tags with parts. Check out online tutorials from HTML Goodies or WebMonkey to learn more about this.

  • If you are going to create a table, draw it first. Write the necessary code in those fields that will need special tabs, and use the annotated sketch as a reference for coding.

  • Visible e-mail addresses can attract spam (junk e-mail); CGI forms offer more control.

  • Check Web sites devoted to HTML to learn of the latest developments (see “Some Sites that Help You with HTML” on page 599).

  • Examine the source code on pages you like to help you develop your own pages.
