Web Page HTML Errors

Web Page HTML CSI: Code Script Investigator

Who hasn't had web page HTML errors at one time or another?

Thus, I am happy to share my site building help story with you. . .

CSI: The Case of the Unfathomable

I am sure that just like me, every webmaster must put on their HTML CSI (Code Script Investigator) hat now and then. It can certainly be a maddening process locating which tag has created the crime of transforming your perfectly formatted web page into a disastrous mess.

I remember like it was yesterday when I learned that after a year of building my first site that HTML tags were suppose to be closed in reverse order! Huh?

How, pray tell, does one learn these things when they are just starting out? (I do have to confess that I never noticed what sort of web page HTML problems that error created but I did go through each and every page to fix all the closing tags.)

Then there is the saga of the mysterious missing HTML symbol, those carrot symbols like < or >, that can render an entire web page invisible! Who knew? Never mind what happens when you forget to insert the forward slash / to close a tag. Yikes!

Another one of my earlier HTML surprises came when I viewed my site using a different browser.

I use IE, Internet Explorer. When I saw how different my site looked when I viewed it using FireFox I thought I'd faint dead away!

What a mess!

The formatting was all out of kilter, the headline fonts weren't the font type or color I had chosen, and my text wasn't behaving properly when it was suppose to wrap itself around the graphics.

That was yet another painful lesson I inadvertently learned on using web page html properly. (Why doesn't anyone warn you of these little coding idiosyncrasies when you start building a web site?)

Frankly, I think that HTML should come with
a warning label.

My advice is to always use your CSI skills to preview your web page often then review your work so you don't have to go through the tedious, torturous task of trying to solve your current case of the unfathomable web page HTML code that's messing with the appearance of your site.

Web Design is more about strategy
by: Website Design Manchester

Web Design is more about strategy than it is about having flashy graphics or catchy phrases. Most importantly, a web design should convey the exact message of what the website represents.

"A professional Manchester web design is a combination of good design, clear presentation, and quality content which impresses the customers. When you have good amount of traffic flowing to your website it automatically helps you make more profits and gain popularity" says the designers at Website Design Manchester.

YIKES! I didn't know that you had to close HTML tags in a certain order... do I need to go back and fix every page on my site now?

HTML compliant? What does that mean? How do you check to make sure that your pages are HTML compliant... whatever that means to begin with!

Gosh, so much to learn and so many errors to make while doing so!

It is always important to make sure that your web pages are HTML compliant so that they appear the same way in all browsers!
