PSD to XHTML Conversion More Effective than PSD to HTML

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

HTML and XHTML are two popular markup languages that are used to create a website. XHTML is an advanced version of HTML. Both these markup languages are used to create dynamic as well as flexible websites. To create a website in any one of these languages, you have to either convert PSD to XHTML or PSD to HTML. These methods are popular for creating attractive, effective, flexible, and quality website with their range of unique and wonderful features. As there are many similarities in both the conversion methods, people use them according to their preferences, however, many web developers go for PSD to XHTML as it offers them more features than HTML.

XHTML comes with integrated tags and user-defined tags in order to help in building a more useful and attractive website.  If you are using XHTML, you can use your own tags with different features like SVG and Math ML, etc. It also supports different formats, which is not possible with HTML language which offers only inbuilt tags.

HTML does not follow strict rules of W3C; this is the reason why many people opt for XHTML that strictly follows the W3C coding rules. Elements used in making websites are properly closed in XHTML, and website created in this language is more reliable than the website created from PSD to HTML. XHTML website is based on semantic markup, which proves very useful in search engine optimization of a web site. It enhances the functionality of a website and takes less time to load. Choose for a conversion, which is compatible with all types of browsers. With XHTML, you can be assured that your website can download and run smoothly on all the browsers.

Importance of Custom Attributes in HTML5

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

The addition of custom attributes in HTML5 has brought significant changes in the semantic web development. On the demand of webmaster community, HTML5 is finally provided with a new data attribute that lets developers define custom attribute in an organised way within HTML. Earlier, it was not possible for a web developer, before HTML5, to add his choice of attribute to HTML elements and access them with the help of Java script. Those who were experienced with it know that it is quite hard to remember about getting markup to validate. However, HTML5 facilitate the option to create and use self customised attributes within the valid pages.

In an advanced HTML, a person can define custom attributes using the “data” attribute. The nature of the project and its length will help know whether the custom attributes will be helpful or not as well as how the naming will take place. For instance, in a retail website, where different product categories are needed to mention, custom attributes allow developer to treat every element in particular ways within the JavaScript code for the page at the time of using animated display functions.

Applying custom attributes in HTML5 in a project is not a complex process in itself; nevertheless the difficult thing here is to decide whether it is appropriate to use it or not and if it is to be used then how to use it efficiently. Setting for this alternative at last will be an early approach for functioning pages; therefore a web developer should always be ready to provide an option for non-supporting browsers.
