Chapter 1. Conceptualizing Your Site > Considering static Web pages

Considering static Web pages

Static Web pages are plain HTML pages. They can include some JavaScript and should include some CSS for formatting. This type of page is called static because the elements in it don't change unless the Webmaster makes changes to it. Each time the page loads, it is pretty much the same. The content remains the same regardless of who views it.

When a visitor tries to view a static Web page, a request to view the page is sent to the server that holds the HTML document. The document and any supporting files are delivered to the visitor's browser. The HTML document that is stored on the server is a whole document with all of its elements included in it. The only external pieces are CSS, images, and some JavaScript. The same HTML document is delivered every time, regardless of who is trying to view it or what they have done previously.
