Misunderstanding Markup

August 6, 2009

Most of you deal with creating graphics of all sorts. I’m sure some of those graphics are destined for the Web and many of you probably also do some design of Web sites. Even though you might rely on a WYSIWYG tool for creating Web sites, it is very important to understand the basics of page markup.

When you start looking at markup, you’ll run into HTML, CSS, XHTML, XML and all kinds of other acronyms for markup languages. I ran into a cute comic strip that helps explain the differences between XHTML 2 and HTML 5. When you first load the graphic, it may be tiny. Just click on it and it should expand to a larger size. Or right-click on the graphic and download the file.

    Unfortunately the site hosting the comic strip has moved or blocked the file. If I can find a new location, I’ll update the link.
