Designing for the Real World

A Study in Coding Styles

You can learn a lot about XHTML and HTML coding by studying the code of others—that is, a lot about what to do and a lot more about what not to do. Even the most successful sites approach their code in different ways.

Whenever you see a site that appeals to you on some level—whether it be its simplicity or complexity—all you need to do is right-click the page and choose View Source. You'll instantly get an inside look into how the Web developer approaches his or her work. Also, you'll begin to see how HTML allows for a lot of sloppiness, whereas by virtue of its more rigorous nature, XHTML is neater and more precise.
