The implementation process resembles software development because it involves using a specific syntax for encoding web structures or a programming language in a formal language in computer files. Although there are automated tools to help with the construction of HTML documents, a thorough grounding in HTML enriches the web implementor's expertise.
Key Implementation Practices
- At the outset, create an extendible directory and file structure to manage the web's files and/or software components (CGI or Java programs).
- Use HTML tools where helpful.
- Check the web's implementation in various browsers.
- Use templates or web generating schemes for supporting a consistent look and feel.
Key Implementation Resources
- The HTML Station: summary and demonstration of HTML syntax.
- HTML index section on HTML from webreference.com. Includes links to editors, FAQs, etc.
- HTML Writer's Guild: an organization dedicated to creating good hypertext.
