HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
provides a greater selection and better rules to follow than prior iterations of the lan-
guage. The key is to stop thinking visually . If you are working from a design in Adobe
Photoshop or Fireworks, then when it comes to building the site, you may find that it
helps to begin by just forgetting about the style and typing in all your content—or place-
holder text if you don't have all of your content at the time (
is a good source of filler text)—straight into your document. By “content,” I mean
everything —not just body text but also any navigation, headers, footers, and so on. If
something may end up as an image in the end (for example, a corporate logo), then don't
worry about it at this stage. Just include some text in its place; you can always replace it
with an inline image later if required.
As you do this, think about the content you're typing, think about how you would de-
scribe it to someone else, and think about what elements are available that fit your de-
scription. Forget about how things are going to look for now—don't think of an h1 as
being “large, ugly, and bold” because that's just how it appears by default. Think about
it as the heading—a bullet point—in the outline of your web page's content. As far as
appearance goes, well, everything can be restyled using CSS.
