These kinds of rationale also go for designing software. Sites have horizontal stripes of content stacked vertically, because that is how we read, and it is easier for most users to scroll vertically than horizontally. All of these design choices come from a knowledge of the materials at hand.
What is the grain of software?
It has to do with fluidity. People who work on software create flexible systems that can deal with variability: content of varying lengths, connections of different speeds, users with many kinds of ability and attention span. What does the page look like if it is empty?
If it is full? And every possibility in between on a mobile device? Working with software is never designing towards a fixed artifact like a chair or book. The easiest way to explore and test these possibilities is by working with the raw materials themselves.
Learn a bit of code and fiddle with things. You will make mistakes. But you will be in good company.
We all get it wrong on the first, second, even third tries, no matter how much experience we have. Getting your hands on the materials is a learning process for all of us.
My father never fully understood what I did for a living, but we could always find common ground in craftsmanship. Good work is grounded in attention to detail, and knowledge of and respect for the materials. First off, you need to open your HTML editor, where you will find a clean white page on which to write your code. These tags should be placed underneath each other at the top of every HTML page that you create. In this case, the language is HTML 5. This includes text, images, tables, forms and everything else that we see on the internet each day.
Search engine bots use this order when deciphering which information is most important on a page. And hit save. The Moment of Truth: Click the newly saved file and your first ever web page should open in your default browser. When we write text in HTML, we also have a number of other elements we can use to control the text or make it appear in a certain way. Almost everything you click on while surfing the web is a link takes you to another page within the website you are visiting or to an external site.
The first part of the attribute points to the page that will open once the link is clicked. Meanwhile, the second part of the attribute contains the text which will be displayed to a visitor in order to entice them to click on that link.
If you are building your own website then you will most likely host all of your pages on professional web hosting. Make a duplicate of the code from your current index. Ensure the folder path to the file page2.
Hit save and preview index. If everything is correct then you will see a link which will take you to your second page. On the second page, there will be a link that will take you to google. The attribute features information for your computer regarding the source , height , width and alt text of the image. You can also define borders and other styles around the image using the class attribute.
However, we shall cover this in a later tutorial.
The file types generally used for image files online are: Alt text is important to ensure that your site is ranked correctly on search sites and also for visually impaired visitors to your site.
Don't be afraid to play around with the test code — it's a great way to have fun while learning. Save an image. In web design, there are 3 different types of lists which you may wish to add to your site. This is an ordered list of contents. For example:. This is better known as a bullet point list and contains no numbers. Now hit save and check out the results in your browser. If everything worked out then it will display a bullet-pointed table displaying the information above.
Another way to keep your website looking neat and orderly is through the use of a table.
Welcome to a nicer way to learn about HTML & CSS
Do not use a table to layout your website. Search engines hate it and it is generally a bad idea. Just… don't.
See our CSS tutorial , instead. This is definitely the most complicated part of this tutorial, however, learning it will certainly pay off in the long-run. With this in mind, tables can still be a useful way to present content on your page. Tables can get quite complicated, so be sure to check out our special HTML tables tutorial.
However, watch out for these tags so that you can recognize them and use them as your skills develop. Tables, borders, spacing are usually styled using CSS but we will cover this in a later tutorial. You can now use this knowledge to create your own web pages containing these features and link them together.
You may also wish to learn about how to make your pages beautiful using CSS. Our HTML tutorials teach you how to create a personal website or site for your business, without forcing you to learn unnecessary theory. These tutorials guide you through the process of creating tables for your exact needs. Tables were once the primary means by which pages were laid out. With the adoption of CSS, this is no longer necessary.
And for good reason, because this created pages that were almost impossible to maintain. But for the purpose of display tables, HTML offers all the tools you will need. There's a lot more to links than just moving from page to page. In this tutorial, you will learn how to navigate pages and download files. You'll also learn how to make your links as user-friendly as possible. Links are the core of HTML so this is important stuff.

And by using CSS, you can set the look of your pages consistently with the ability to radically change them by changing just a few lines of code. This tutorial explains all. But with HTML5, you have the addition of the picture and figure elements.
Find out all about the new goodies that are waiting to be explored. This tutorial introduces you to semantic markup that allows you to construct pages so that their structure reveals their content.

The em has meaning: Logical tags like em and cite are important in the same way as semantic markup. Find more in this brief discussion. Each tag reference includes background and examples , which show how to use the tag in question. Below are some of the most common tags — used by nearly every website you encounter:.
