  • 14. LAB 1 Lets build a simple XML document together
  • 15. <HTML> The
markup
language
used
to
describe
web
pages.
  • 16. HTML
stands
for: Hypertext
Markup
Language
  • 17. What’s a Markup Language? It
is
a
set
of
symbols
and
 rules
in
a
document
that
 describe
its
structure
and
 format.

  • 18. Who decides these rules? W3C (WORLD WIDE WEB CONSORTIUM) W3C is an international standards body for both HTML and CSS Formed in October 1994 Founded by Tim Berners-Lee Has 356 members as of September 09’
  • 19. HTML Tags are special keywords surrounded by angle bracket like <div> Most HTML tags come in pairs like <div></div> Consisting of an opening and closing tag
  • 20. Basic Tags <a href=”http://www.google.com”>This is a link tag to Google.com</a> <p>This is a paragraph tag</p> <div>This tag represents a division in the page (called a “div”)</div> <img src=”C:Desktopimage.png” alt=”My Image” /> <h1>This is heading 1..the largest heading</h1> <h2>This is heading 2..the second largest heading</h2> Heading tags are defined h1-h6 Heading tags work just like headings in your favorite word processor
  • 21. Basic Tags Continued <br /> is a line break and can be used inside text- nodes. <ul> is an unordered list. It has children known as <li> list items. Next to each list item will be a bullet. <ul> <li>Cat</li> <li>Dog</li> <li>Mouse</li> </ul>
  • 22. .HTM, .HTML or .XHTML? Document extensions .HTM is the same as .HTML .HTM is a remnant from the old days when file extensions were only three letters .XHTML is the same as a .HTML document except an .XHTML document is a well-formed XML document
  • 23. Structure of an HTML Document <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> </body> </html>
  • 24. Doctype (DTD) Document type declaration Transitional <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> XHTML == Markup MUST be well formed XML Transitional == Contains all HTML elements and attributes, INCLUDING presentational and deprecated elements (like the <font> tag)
  • 25. <html> The <html> tag tells the browser that this is an HTML document. The html element is the outermost element in HTML and XHTML documents. The html element is also known as the root element.
  • 26. <head> hidden from the user can contain: meta information stylesheet references scripts title
  • 27. <body> The content of the document text hyperlinks images tables lists etc...
  • 28. Deprecated what? Basically, try to avoid using things marked as DEPRECATED While they are supported in the current version there is no guarantee future versions will continue support
  • 29. Good Practice HTML elements should be lowercase Why? The W3C recommends it and may require it in the future. All elements should be closed. Close an element by either adding a forward slash to the start element <br /> or add a forward slash to the ending element like <div></ div>
  • 30. Helpful documentation W3schools http://www.w3schools.com/tags/default.asp http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML
