Development Tools

  • Leslie F. Sikos

Abstract

Since modern markup elements and attributes are becoming more and more sophisticated, complex development software is used to generate web pages. However, certain web content such as descriptive metadata can be so complex that it often requires human decisions. Advanced text editors always have a top priority in the software list of every web standardista. Although they can be used for a variety of tasks, specific editors should be applied such as semantic editors and markup correctors. Advanced text editors can also be integrated with SFTP clients. WYSIWYG editors and content management systems can be useful for rapid development; however, they often produce invalid code. Consequently, their application should be minimized in web site standardization and optimization.
