6 What is HTML HyperText Markup Language Markers around text (elements) instruct browser on how to deal with text. HTML 4.01 / XHMTL Reference Note: this list is extensive, here’s the ones you’re going to use the most:

7 FAH – Frequently-Accessed HTML
Elements you’ll use routinely <a href=“”> </a> start and end hypertext anchors <b> </b> start/end bold text (also <strong> </strong) <blockquote> - indented text <body> - defines the document’s body <br /> - defines a single line break <div> - defines a section in a document <!DOCTYPE> - defines browser rending ruleset <h1> to <h6> - defines HTML headings <head> - defines information about the document <hr /> - horizontal rule (line) <html> - start of html <i> </i> - start/end italic text (also <em> </em) <li> - list item <link> - reference external files like CSS & JavaScript <meta /> - defines metadata in an HTML document <ol> - ordered (numbered) list <p> - paragraph <span> - select pieces of text <table> - tabulated data <td> - table data cell <th> - table headers <title> - html document title in browser bar <tr> - table row <ul> - unordered (bulleted) list Others you’ll use less often <code> - for displaying programming code <fieldset> - broder around form <form> - input forms <input /> - form fields <option> - items in a selector <map> - image map – clickable areas in images <pre> - preformatted text – honors spaces <select> - drop-down list in form

8 Headfirst into the Web The <head> is where basic assumptions and linkages are defined. <!DOCTYPE> - defines browser rending ruleset – W3C Doctypes <title> - html document title in browser bar <meta> - defines metadata in an HTML document – keywords and description <link> - references external documents such as stylesheet and JavaScript Much more detail about the <head> element

9 Typical Text <h1> First header </h1> <p> This is a paragraph. <span style=“color:red;>It can have color text</span>. It can have <b>bold text in it</b> as well as <i>italic<i>. You don’t nest lists inside it, they’re a separate element. You can also break<br />lines. <ul> <li>List item</li> <h2> Second header </h2> <table> <tr> <td>Table Data Cell</td><td>Table Data Cell</td><td>Table Data Cell</td> </tr> </table> <blockquote> This is indented text. It can be many words. It can have <b>bold text in it</b> as well as <i>italic<i>. You don’t nest tables inside it, they’re a separate element. Marking up text and Lesser-known semantic elements. </blockquote>

10 Arr!!! Drop Anchor! <a href=“url”>Linked text</a>
<a id=“subject” name=“subject”></a> <a href=“#subject”>Go to subject section in page</a> <a href=“url” target=“_blank”>New Veender</a> Even more detail on linking

11 Intrapage Links <a href=“#one”>Widgets</a> <a href=“#two”>Gidgits</a> <a href=“#three”>Digits</a> <a href=“#four”>Midgets</a> More details Luna Beach Resort FAQ <a id=“one”></a> <h1>Section One</h1> <p>All about widgets</p> <a id=“two”></a> <h1>Section Two</h1> <p>All about gidgits</p> <a id=“three”></a> <h1>Section Three</h1> <p>All about digits</p> <a id=“four”></a> <h1>Section Four</h1> <p>All about midgets</p>

12 Links and images Basic link-on-image: <a href=“url”><img src=“path/to/image.jpg” /></a> ‘image.jpg’ can be a button or a picture. Note, button- based navigation is tedious to maintain. Google ‘sliding doors of CSS’ for details on reusable button menu. <a href=“url”><img src=“path/to/image” style=“border:none;” /></a> If don’t WANT an underline/border on rollover.
