Example text

Standards are all around us: look at the plugs in your home, the size of the shoes you’re wearing, and so on. But what has this go to do with the Web? So, web standards? Web standards pick up from the same principle. As browser manufacturers have moved toward embracing standards, the need to write browser-specific markup has diminished. By using well-structured HTML to mark up content and CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, to control presentation, we should now be able to design one web site, and it should display consistently across standards-compliant browsers regardless of operating system (Mac OS, Windows, or Linux).

Mark up the content Copy and paste the text provided into the ^k`u of your ]h^anp*dpih page. 2 As our text currently stands, it has no markup or structure. Your task is to add some structure to the page using 8d-: and 8l: tags, a process similar to the one covered in Figures 2-3 and 2-4 of this chapter. With such a simple text file, this should be a relatively straightforward process. Add your markup and save the page. 6. Add a comment Once you’ve completed the previous stage, add a comment on the page congratulating yourself on creating your very first space-monkey page using XHTML.

Before you even open your text editor, look at the content you’ll be working with and break it down into its component parts. Give it a hierarchy and try to tease out the meaning of specific phrases. With this knowledge, mark up the document accordingly. 42 STRUCTURED MARKUP This is design at its most fundamental level: looking at words and working out which tags are most appropriate. If we can convey a document’s structure at this level using just XHTML, we’re halfway there. The rest, handled with CSS, is just surface gloss and presentational niceness.
