Coding Tips and Tricks

Basic HTML

It does not matter if you are programming in PHP, Java Scipt, JQuery, ASP, whatever, the basic structure behind web pages is HTML. Although the current standard is HTML5, the follow page has some coding to basic HTML syntax.

Basic HTML Tutorial

If you would like a more intense HTML tutorial, you can connect to the W3Schools website for more coding syntax and utilities to help you play with the coding.

W3Schools HTML Tutorial


As mentioned above, the current standard (as of Feb/2016) is HTML5. HTML is very similar to HTML, however there are new tags available and some tags have been removed. The W3Schools tutorials are based on the HTML5 coding.

The following is the basic layout for a HTML5 document:

  <!DOCTYPE html>  
 <title>Page Title</title>  
 <h1>This is a Heading</h1>  
 <p>This is a paragraph.</p>  

If you would like to read more about the HTML 5 standards and some of the coding specifications, you can view the W3C Specifications.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

CSS is a stylesheet language that describes the presentation of an HTML (or XML) document. CSS describes how elements must be rendered on screen, on paper, or in other media.

We as developers will use CSS to enhance the look of webpages. The aspect of having a somewhat programming language to creatively create a visual look of a webpage can be somewhat mind-blowing; however, in reality, it is quite simple. Just keep in mind, HTML is standard text in tags, and CSS is a standard text syntax of declarations. The user's browser is what reads in that text and determines how the information is displayed with your coding.

We have create a page called How CSS Works to give you some basic examples of CSS and how it is implements. For more information on specific coding, check out the W3Schools Tutorial and reference on CSS.
