Reading Summary of Chapters (1 through 6)

Chapter 1: Webpage Building Blocks

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language which is the language of the web and it is a must to create web pages.
HTML contains three major components:
Text content
textual content on a web page

References to other files
call and or link to additional contents like scripts, video, audio, stylesheet that can add resources or functionalities to the web page.

Markup
is the defining instructions and rules for interpreting the HTML file; examples are the meta tags, defining the web page's language, etc..
The Text content and the References to other files are visually display on the Web page while the Markup is an underlining element that provides instruction on how to render the information.


Chapter 2: Working with Webpage Files

A file is first created and located before adding content to it. A good planing and well structured layout with visitor in mind lead to a better web page

Chapter 3: Basic HTML Structure

There is a basic structure that defines and HTML file. It starts with a DoCTYPE that tells what type of document is been created.



Fortunately many versions of Doctype went by and the current one can be more streamlined to a single line of codes. The HTML has two distinct parts which are the head and the body, each can only contain specific elements within a section.


Chapter 4: Text

Text explicitly conveys information to visitors and its content and layout are very important. The Text is controlled by markup elements like i italic, b bold,

paragraph and many more. the best practice is to separate content from design through the use of StyleSheet. The StyleSheet serves to provide customized positioning to the element of text such as navigation, headers, section, etc..

Chapter 5: Images

Images add visual details and information to web pages. How a web page image is displayed is based on its file format like PNG, GIF, or JPEG, file size and file resolution. Web page images are specifically created, uploaded, stored, and called within a webpage in order to be displayed. Images can be displayed by size, quality, and can be dynamic as well. A special type of image called favicon is used in the head section of HTML to brand a web page

Chapter 6: Links

links are used to connect internal and external parts of a web page. There is a target and a label. the target of a link define the object of the link while the label is simply the visual representation of the link that guides visitors.
