before web standards
Before Web Standards
  • Transition from print to digital technologies
    • New: users choose how to interact with a text
    • New: how do texts age as technologies evolve?
  • Browser Wars
    • Browser developers made their own rules
    • No way to trust that a design would render the same in different browsers
    • Maintaining multiple versions of the same website for different browsers
before web standards1
Before Web Standards

The Culprits - Netscape and Microsoft

where do standards come from
Where Do Standards Come From
  • The World Wide Web Consortium
  • Started in 1994
  • Didn't really have teeth until 2004
  • Mozilla and Firefox led, others followed
  • W3C consists of members with a vested interest in the web
    • Microsoft, Google, Apple, Mozilla, Adobe, etc
    • Group deliberates on how standards evolve
benefits of standards
Benefits of Standards
  • Reliable display across browsers [almost]
  • Improved backwards compatibility
  • Structure - Presentation - Behavior
  • Universal support of CSS
    • Separation of content from presentation [almost]
    • Texts that transform for different audiences and tech
  • Universal support of JavaScript
    • Interactive texts, advanced web services
being standards compliant
Being Standards-compliant
  • Markup must follow syntax rules
  • All required attributes
  • No objects with children they can't have
  • All rules of tags followed
    • lowercase letters
    • all attributes in quotation marks
    • all tags closed properly (especially <img />)
  • Your markup will be tested for compliance
validating your markup
Validating Your Markup
  • W3C Validator - free, easy to use
  • Upload files or paste markup into it
  • This is how you will be evaluated
  • Test your favorite website course page
  • See if is valid
    • What kind of errors do we get back?
  • Check your course pages for compliance
  • Report - what kind of errors (if any)? (do this in thimble)
  • Fix your markup (if necessary)
  • Remember:
    • your markup will be graded for proper syntax
    • validate early, validate often

what html5 is about
What HTML5 is About
  • Not brand new - evolutionary, not revolutionary
  • Almost all of HTML4 survives (some things obsolete)
  • Usable now; browser support varies
  • Adds native support for audio, video, drawing (canvas) Simplifies a lot of complicated markup
  • Adds new forms of semantic markup

Lots of HTML5 to Play With
