Web pages are composed of text, HTML tags, client-side scripts and CSS definitions among
others. The rendering of Web pages varies on different browsers. Microsoft's IE,
as the dominant browser, has captured 90-95% of the browser market. It you have limited budget,
you may choose to design IE friendly Web pages. The safe path for Web page design is
to use standard tags only since the browser market may change over time.
HTML This is the bread-and-butter of a Web page.
HTML is a markup language. Text can be marked by a pair of start and end tags.
HTML tags can be grouped broadly into two types: content tags which define structures
of a HTML document and presentation tags which define the look-and-feel of a web page.
Client Side Script The most commonly used
is very effective for enhancing interactivity and client-side validation for
Cascade Style Sheets (CSS) CSS is not really
a programming language, rather than a standard to define new presentation tags and
overwrite default presentation tags by specifying the attributes of a class.
