Best Practices

  • Leslie F. Sikos

Abstract

Beyond optimal markup and styles provided by the appropriate use of web standards, there are designing conventions that are browser-independent, reliable, and satisfactory, which thus can be applied as ultimate solutions. Best practices should have top priority in web site development. Although they change over time, many can be applied for years. It is important to know the techniques that provide standard-compliant codes and distinguish them from those tricks and hacks that cause incorrect markup.
