HTML 5 – its need online and the way it will change the way we surf and code
Have you ever been victim of creating a website with dreamweaver, where you use a standard HTML code with some CSS to align the site up nicely and to make it look clean. Then, once you have completed the design, have you tried uploading it to test on either, Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome, where each browser has a different variation of the layout, where text may appear different and so on?
If this is you, and you are confused as to what to do, the problem is that as browsers keep popping up with new version without any governing body to make sure that standards are in place, one thing has come together to make sure that you can alleviate these concerns, HTML 5. This type of code is the latest in making sure that you have all browsers configuring the same HTML code, thus displaying it properly. Where do you see where to make changes, on the top of the dreamweaver code:
"DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd - html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
This is an example of HTML 5:
"DOCTYPE html - html lang="en" - head - meta charset="utf-8"
