doctype is similar to a dialect } (x)html is similar to a language a person might speak } head is the head of a person — pretty straight forward } body is the body of a person — pretty straight forward } p, br, table, tr, td, ul, ol and other structural tags are similar to the insides of a body: heart, lungs, intestines, ribs, skeleton, etc. } Attributes are the size, volume, width, height, etc.. of the insides/organs (what a structural tag might look like) } Content is similar to blood, nerve endings, and what’s inside/organs. In other words, content goes between the body tags! } CSS is the outside presentation of the person… their clothing, hair colour, shape of their body, etc. etc.
This bright idea was originally conceived in and around July, 2004.
