What is a website and a web page?

What is a website and web page?

In English website or web site, a web site is a site (location) on the World Wide Web to contine documents (web pages) organized gerárquicamente. Each document (web page) contains text and graphics that appear as digital information on a computer screen. A site can contain a combination of graphics, text, audio, video, and other dynamic or static materials.

Each website has a home page (in English Home Page), which is the first document that the user sees when entering the website domain name getting that website in a browser. The site usually has other documents (web pages) were added. Each site is owned and managed and by one individual, a company or an organization.

As a medium, the websites are similar to movies, to television or magazines, they also create and manipulate digital images and text, but a website is also a means of communication. The main difference between a website and traditional media is that a website is on a computer network (Internet) and is encoded in such a way that allows users to interact with. Once in a website, you can make purchases, searches, send messages, and other interactive activities.

Difference between website and web page

Sometimes the term is erroneously used to refer to website website. A web page is part of a web site is a single file with a file name assigned, while a website is a set of files called web pages.

If likened to a book, a website would be the whole book and a website that website would be a chapter in that book. The title of the book would be the domain name of the website. One chapter, like a website, has a name that defines it. We say that would be a chapter, not a page of the book because it is often necessary to move on to the screen to see the entire contents of a web page, like a book you scroll through several pages to see all content of a chapter. The index of the chapters of the book would be the equivalent to site map (sitemap in English).

CSS3 brings great news for web design.

CSS3 brings great news for web design.

Since CSS began many years have passed and we are already CSS3 specification, which incorporates a number of innovations that we will try to summarize in this article.

What is CSS?

If you do not know what CSS interested you probably start by reading our manual CSS or CSS section thoroughly. However, one might say that CSS is a language for defining the style or appearance of web pages written in HTML or XML documents. CSS was created to separate the content of the form, while allowing designers to maintain a much more precise control over the appearance of the pages.

More control With CSS3

The initial goal of CSS, separating content from form, shall be fulfilled as the first language specifications. However, the objective of offering total control to designers on the elements of the site has been more difficult to cover. The above specifications have many uses language to style websites, but developers still continue to use tricks to get various effects as common or as desired as rounded or shading elements on the page.

CSS1 represented a considerable advance when designing websites, providing much greater control over page elements. But there were still many other things that the designers wanted to do, but did not allow specify CSS, they should make use of tricks to design. The worst of these tricks is that often involves altering the content of the page to add new HTML tags that allow styling of a more elaborate way. Given the need to change the content, to alter the design and do things that CSS is not allowed, it was ruining any of the purposes for which CSS was created, which was completely separate content from form.

CSS2 incorporated some interesting developments, which today already use regularly, but CSS 3 still goes a little more in the direction of providing more control over page elements.
So, the most important development that provides CSS 3, facing web developers, is the incorporation of new mechanisms to maintain greater control over the style that shows the elements of the pages, without having to resort to tricks or hacks, often complicating the code of the web.

Part of this list of new CSS3 properties I have taken from: http://www.css3.info/preview/. It is an English site, but may be well to visit to get to know more about CSS 3. However, in that place were missing some things like gradients or animations, at least when we visited, so we have completed for the realization of this index.
Future articles will offer some tips and explanations on several of these properties, at least the most interesting as well as examples that serve to get to know this new CSS specification. All this as we will be placing in the Manual CSS 3.

What is HTML5?

What is HTML5?

HTML5, together with CSS3 defines new standards for web development for both desktop computers and mobile devices and cell phones. Doors open for new design options and dynamic information.

Much is talking lately about this new version of the popular HTML. For those who still do not know and always feared ask: HTML is the programming language and basic mother of all websites. This is a set of tags that are used to format different types of content, especially text.

The only formats and displays HTML content, and has the ability to interface with variables, database, etc. Even more complex websites, system using large databases and perform complex tasks, send to browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.) Pure HTML.

HTML5 is a new version of this universal language and, while still under development, we can enjoy it in most browsers. Google Chrome is a pioneer in HTML5 support and is currently the browser that provides further support to this version of HTML.

What we offer HTML?

While it represents a lot of improvements over its previous version, these are the most important:

  • Simplification: The new code offers new ways simpler to specify some parameters and pieces of code.
  • Multimedia content: audio and video playback without plug-ins
  • Animations: Ability to display content similar to Adobe Flash, but apart from this component. HTML5 will have native support for a technology similar to Flash.
  • Data storage on the client side: A fundamental difference between desktop and web applications was the need of the latter, to process information and consultations provided databases on a server, making applications are slower and always required a constant Internet connection. HTML5 to store and process information on the client, making a Web application to an application much more like a desktop.
  • Effects and new version of CSS: The new version of HTML accompany a new version of CSS, CSS3. These are new formatting capabilities, such as the implementation of shadows, rounded edges, etc.

Many of the things that, until now, could only be achieved by inserting them as images, may be performed in code. This not only results in an improvement in the speed and performance of a site, but also in new and limitless design options.

  • Geo-location: Websites may know the physical location of the person who visits.
  • Nonstandard Fonts: Until now, perhaps the biggest limitation that designers faced was the inability to use non-standard fonts in our websites. Virtually all were limited to those that were imposed by the major browsers, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana, Tahoma, etc. The implementation of systems like Google Fonts today allows us to use many more!

In short: HTML5 will offer a number of improvements that will allow the development of web sites faster, more functional, and new designs.
