Netregistry — Australia's Domain Name Registrar. The Ultimate Guide to Web Hosting from Chapter 1: What is Web Hosting? Most people never really think about where a website is, or even what a website is. I turn on my computer, open a browser, and go to Google or Amazon or Yahoo. But what am I doing when I “visit” a website? If I’m a visitor, where have I gone? And if it is a “site,” where is it located? What will you learn in this chapter? Skip this chapter if… You have used web hosting before and have a good understanding of what a website is and how they work.

What is a website? To understand where a website is located, it’s helpful to understand what it is. We can roughly divide websites into three types (there is some overlap here — these are not strict categories, but they are helpful for thinking about this): Collection of documents or pages — This is the original type of website. There’s some additional complications we don’t really need to get into here, but the important thing is that when you visit a website, a series of things are happening: Running a website Summary. Make A CSS3 Animated Image Slider.

Slider galleries have been around a long time, but until very recently they have almost exclusively been coded using JavaScript. CSS3 now gives us the ability to create the same effect natively in the browser, without JavaScript or any dependence on frameworks or plugins. For the purposes of illustration I’ll keep the animation sequence fairly basic; as CSS3 Filters and variables start to be supported cross-browser, you’ll find that you will be able to add a great many more effects to this simple code.

The principles of the slider are very simple: the elements on the page consist solely of a container (an HTML5 <header> element, in this case) and a “strip” of slider gallery images side-by-side. The outer container element will act as a window through which we will view each image in the strip sequence. The Markup There are just two conditions for the elements: Base CSS And make the div the width of all the images added together (800 × 4 = 3200 pixels).

Crafting The Animation div { The Future. Make Your Web Pages More Legible With CSS3 Ligatures and Kerning Pairs. For many web designers, CSS webfonts have enough richness and variability to occupy their time. A good developer will carefully deliberate in choosing a strong font family and designing a decent font stack. They will certainly modify font-size, line-height and color to maximize attractiveness and readability of text, and maybe add a little letter-spacing for heading elements, but that’s usually as far as it goes. A well-designed typeface has more depth to it than most people appreciate. One example of this buried richness are automatic kerning controls: some letters that appear beside each other become much more readable if they are moved closer together. These are known as kerning pairs. In some cases, the letters might be conjoined into a new set of characters, called a ligature. A good example would be the capital letters W and A. A correctly applied kerning pair effect is subtle, but effective, greatly increasing readability while allowing more glyphs per line of text. p { For kerning:

A "Way More" Complete List of HTML Escape Codes. Web Developer Tutorial: Escape Characters. I get letters now and again asking how people are able to create such great looking alert and prompt boxes, along with properly formatted text, including often used ascii characters.

This also translates to any JavaScript commands that write to the page, including the document.write command.

I know you've hit this wall. You write a script and you'd like to put in a single quote as in the word "you'll" or "you're". I guess it is. But fear not. The Prompt Example Using Escape Characters Let's do the prompt first. Hopefully you can scroll this page and show the code that created the text while at the same time showing the prompt box. Var name = prompt("Please write your \'name\' in the box\rWrite it with \"quotes\" like this.

Introduction Even though it's sometimes recommended to replace the <hr> element with cascading stylesheets only using horizontal borders of other elements, I prefer <hr> as a section divider.

This makes a web page more readable even in older browsers that receive only pure HTML with no style sheet. On the other hand, simple, unstyled <hr> does not look good in richly styled documents. That's why I tried to find a couple of cross-browser compatible ways to make it prettier. I used to hide style sheets from the version 4 browsers and older, so my targeted browsers are IE5+, Opera 5+ and Mozilla/NN6.

Which properties work Various CSS properties can be applied on <hr>: All three browsers allow setting width and height of the <hr> element. Examples Now, let's take a look at a couple of examples.

The HTML As with the 2 column layout, the html for a 3 column layout is rather simple. Instead of using sidebar-1 and sidebar-2 I’m calling the sidebars primary and secondary. One point to make about the html is the order of the divs. I’ll get to the details in a bit, but with 3 columns there are 6 potential ways to order those columns. The CSS Not bad.

Centering lines of text The most common and (therefore) easiest type of centering is that of lines of text in a paragraph or in a heading. CSS has the property 'text-align' for that: renders each line in a P or in a H2 centered between its margins, like this: The lines in this paragraph are all centered between the paragraph's margins, thanks to the value 'center' of the CSS property 'text-align'. Centering a block or image Sometimes it is not the text that needs to be centered, but the block as a whole. This rather narrow block of text is centered.
