We’re taking a break from pure coding today, and stepping back to look at an important consideration of building a website, which is optimising its contents for speed.
Our fourth and (probably) final day on forms and it’s time to make our example form look a little bit nicer than how the browser wants to render it by default.
Our third day on forms and we’re using HTML5’s built in validation to make sure that what is submitted in our form is what it should be.
Our second day on forms and we’re moving away from simple inputs to look at some of the other form elements available to us.
Moving on from tables, today we’re starting what will probably be a multi-day look at forms, and how to elicit information from your site’s users.
As we enter the home straight of our series, we’re looking at laying out data in our HTML pages using tables.
At the halfway point in our series it’s time to tart up our header and navigation sections to finalise our initial page layout.
