The following article offers a beginner’s guide to some of the key acronyms and abbreviations used in the world of web design and web development. As with all industries and sectors, esoteric jargon can be a barrier preventing many people from fully embracing web technologies and all of the potential benefits that they can bring to businesses and individuals alike.

HTML

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is the fundamental language of the web. Basically it tells a web browser what information to display on a web page and how to display it. To that end it can determine the structure of the page (and its content) as well as the formatting or styling (colour and size etc) of the page, although the latter are often controlled by style sheets instead (see CSS below).

The markup primarily uses tags, placed before and after each piece of content, to define what are known as elements. These elements can be individually defined and/or belong to (standard or bespoke) groups which can then be interpreted by the browsers. For example, a portion of text that needs to display as a paragraph should be preceded by a tag and closed by a tag.

The rules (i.e., syntax) that govern the use of HTML and what is standard mark up language are set by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) so that website and browser developers have a consistent language to work with. The latest incarnation of HTML is HTML5, which is intended to meet the needs of the current media-rich, multi-device world of online content, although it is presently still under development. The latest HTML standard is HTML4.01.

CSS

The initials CSS stand for Cascading Style Sheets, but the term is often interchangeable with simply style sheets. In essence CSS is used to specify the style that would be applied to a web page or set of web pages including, for example, the positioning of elements on the page, colour schemes, background imagery and font formatting.

When used in conjunction with properly defined and identified HTML elements its primary benefit is that it allows styles to be specified only once, in one style sheet, and then applied to multiple elements across either one page or an entire site; rather than having to be specified individually against each occurrence of each element (of which there could be thousands). In short, employing CSS means that all pages on a website can follow the same styling theme using just one style sheet. In addition, the same web page(s) can even link to different style sheets so that it can appear with different styling depending on how that page is viewed. For example, one style sheet can be activated if the user is viewing the site on a mobile device and another if on a PC.

The cascading element of the name refers to the way in which the styling is applied to a particular element following a hierarchy of specificity; a style sheet could, on the one hand, tell the browser to display all hyperlinks as blue, but, on the other, tell the browser that all hyperlinks appearing in the footer element should be red. The result would be that, for any links appearing in the footer, the more specific instruction would take precedence and they would display as red.

Gaining an understanding of the terms HTML and CSS, what they do, how they work and how they interact is really the first step in understanding how web pages and sites are put together. In the second part of this article, the terms XML and CMS will also be defined and their role in web development explained.

Where Laptops are Stolen – Locations

Nowadays people take their laptops with them everywhere. In addition to work, school and travel, the proliferation of wireless internet hot zones have people bringing laptops out in the street, using them in public cafes.
*Police say normally quiet cafes are becoming hunting grounds for laptop bandits – San Francisco Chronicle, April 8, 2006
*”Where else do you have a thousand-dollar item sitting on a table in a coffee shop?” – San Francisco Chronicle, April 8, 2006

*Thieves are also making a killing stealing laptops from cars. According to the Montreal Police Service, 3,928 portable computers were stolen from vehicles last year, up from 2,870 reported thefts the year before. “Sometimes students will lock their laptop in their car but it’s still visible,” Lachance says. “Or they’ll think it’s secure in the trunk, but people watch them go to their car, and later they’ll just break through the trunk.” – Montreal Mirror, October 5, 2006

Aftermath

Once your laptop is stolen, the likelihood of recovering anything from your loss is quite slim. Losing your laptop is devastating and quite costly when you consider the priceless photos, files and personal information you have stored, in addition to the expensive hardware.
*There is nothing that can prepare you for the feeling of loss and the dread that comes with knowing that your personal data is gone forever. While it is very inconvenient and can be very expensive to replace the laptop itself, NOTHING can replace the hours of hard work that is stored on your computer. – The UK Web Design Company
*”Three months after I lost my laptop and started rebuilding my files, I still have only one third of my data recovered,” says Ms. Gilbert. “It will be at least six months before I will reach full productivity, and I’ll never have everything back”. She lost sleep and spent countless anxious weeks worrying about client information and how she was going to stay on top of her projects. “I never want to go through it again,” says Gilbert. – Lessons in Data Loss: A Case Study, Data Deposit Box
*For personal computer users there are mp3 playlists, emails, personal photo albums, and other important files. For the professional computer user, the stakes are higher…perhaps it’s the accounting data for your company’s 3rd quarter earnings, the PowerPoint presentation you will be giving to the CEO on Thursday afternoon, or the proposal that needs to be sent to the European office A.S.A.P. There are some real horror stories about the financial impact to a corporation of having its entire five-year marketing plan stolen along with someone’s laptop. – The UK Web Design Company
*Dr Chetan Ruprai, 28, a specialist registrar in the maternity ward at York Hospital, is desperate to get her laptop back. The machine contains three years worth of painstaking medical research which cannot be replaced and is vital to her career. “This is very distressing and I will do anything to get it back” she said. – The Press, January 27, 2007
*I was out the cost of the laptop plus I had to redo 3 websites I built. Backups were stolen too. The theft of my laptop cost me thousands. – Personal blog post
*Of course I filed a police report, but I’ve already said goodbye to years and years worth of memories. Photos, videos, documents… some (very few) of which were backed up but most are now in the hands of a thief. – Personal blog post

Besides storing all your invaluable data, laptops also serve as an extremely important work, communication and entertainment tool. In our computer dependent society, it’s not surprising that victims of laptop theft often feel an immense sense of loss and anguish.
*Losing a laptop is a traumatic experience… I know it was a total disaster for me. All my email was gone, my photos from the Russia/Ukraine holiday, the new OKS features I wrote on the plane coming here, and so on. Of course, I was left without my slides for my meeting the next day, and with no laptop to conduct my course Wednesday-Friday. – Personal blog post
*After my laptop was stolen, I definitely had a good cry. There’s a feeling of depression perhaps and certainly futility. I miss the first computer that was truly mine. I liked that laptop! I’m missing my pictures and notes. I’m missing the Mac software I had figured out how to use. Without a computer, I can’t send email or blog. I can’t watch videos. Having my laptop stolen affected my lifestyle, my community, my mental and emotional wellbeing. I was mad that my family and I had to pay the price for someone else’s actions with both time and money… – Personal blog post
*You can steal my car, my money, my shoes, I don’t really care, but don’t steal my damn laptop! – Personal blog post
*Oh I had insurance. Insurance doesn’t cover weeks of modeling time done on my laptop, or a sketchbook nearly filled with drawings or notes. So as all the other architecture students are looking forward to a break from the studio, a time to spend with family at the dinner table enjoying Thanksgiving and in front of the TV enjoying football and beer, I look forward to 100 hours in front of a drafting table and a laptop borrowed from the school, drafting and CADing to my hearts content. Why me? Why now? What did I do to deserve this? – Personal blog post
*I’m a graduate Professional Writing student at USC. I write fiction, nonfiction and screenplays. As a result of the theft of my laptop, I lost some pieces I had written, I had to buy a new laptop, and I was pained emotionally because of the incident. I felt, and still feel very wronged, and taken. It makes me sick to know someone has my laptop with my personal files. – Personal blog post
*It was like you cut off my arm. I had my whole life on my laptop. Two novels, years of photos, work files, and more. Since I’m a full-time volunteer these days, I have no money to buy a new computer. – Personal blog post
*As I slept, someone entered the house and stole my laptop, backpack, wallet, cell phone, and iPod. All while I slept. My life revolves around that laptop and the loss is monumental to me. – Personal blog post
*Fortunately, whoever entered my abode and took my possessions didn’t kill or maim me. But the loss of my LIFE, which was entirely wrapped up in that laptop, is almost too much for me to bear. All day I’ve been making phone calls, leaning on good friends for support, and changing what passcodes I can in an attempt to thwart the upcoming identity theft, or whatever else the thief decides to do with my personal information. – Personal blog post

Small businesses might have the most to lose when a laptop goes missing. The loss of vital data such as client information, accounting records or business plans could all spell disaster for a small business.

*The day my laptop was stolen almost killed my business. The laptop can be replaced. However the loss of critical DATA was the biggest risk my business has ever faced. – The UK Web Design Company
*Users today store more mission-critical data than ever before, so a lost laptop is a huge issue for a small business owner. In total, 7 out of 10 small businesses go bankrupt within a year of experiencing a major data loss. – Lessons in Data Loss: A Case Study, Data Deposit Box

As seen in the news recently, even large companies such as Boeing and Fidelity are not immune to theft. Both have had laptops stolen from employees that contained very critical data pertaining to hundreds of thousands of people, putting these innocent victims at risk for identity theft, credit card fraud and a slew of other dangers.
*”2006: The Year of the Stolen Laptop” – Forbes, September 7, 2006
*Boeing disclosed that files containing Social Security numbers, names and home addresses of 382,000 current and former employees were compromised when an unencrypted laptop was stolen from an employee’s car. – MSNBC, December 13, 2006
*The University of California, Berkeley, is warning more than 98,000 people that the theft of a laptop from its graduate school admissions office has exposed their personal information. Files on the laptop contained names, dates of birth, addresses and Social Security numbers of 98,369 graduate students or graduate-school applicants. The files go back three decades in some cases. – CNN, March 28, 2005
*Financial services giant Fidelity Investments confirmed that a laptop containing the personal information of almost 200,000 Hewlett-Packard employees was stolen from its property. – CNN, March 23, 2006
*Georgia-based Emory Healthcare reports that a laptop containing information on 38,000 of its patients was stolen. The missing laptop contained information on patients who had been treated for cancer at Emory Hospital, Emory Crawford Long Hospital, and Grady Memorial Hospital. The data included names, addresses and Social Security numbers.
The theft of patients’ medical records is a growing concern, particularly as these records can be used to engage in “medical identity theft”. Thieves can use stolen identities not only to obtain credit and loans, but to get expensive medical procedures that they might not have otherwise been able to afford, running up thousands in debt in the process.
Patients who have been hit with medical identity theft can find their insurance premiums skyrocketing, and can face large medical bills for procedures they never had. – ConsumerAffairs.com, January 8, 2006

If you have an on line business or if you are planning to start an on line business then it is crucial to have an impressive yet functional website that is different from the rest of your competitors. Your web site needs to look professional as well as being effortless to use and easy to navigate.

When a visitor lands on your web site you only have one or two seconds to deliver the goods in terms of services or products so it is vitally important to give the purchaser what they want as soon as they click on your link. It is important to deliver what the visitor has searched for so it is significant that your initial landing page displays the product, information and facts or service that has been initially searched for.

For example, if a visitor has searched for web design Manchester then the page that they land on should display a service that provides web design in the Manchester area. If your page displays a web design service that focuses on web design Chester then there is a good possibility that your prospective customer will move on to the next site and you will lose the business.

Navigation is also a critical part of page design, there is nothing worse than a web site that is hard to navigate, it is confusing and frustrating for the visitor and the end result will without doubt be the loss of a sale. Keep your site navigation crystal clear and make sure that all your relevant pages are easy to find.

The actual style and design of the web site is also important, a professional looking web site will work wonders for your business, your web site represents you and your business, it is the first point of contact between you and your potential clients so it is a good idea to have a web site that looks clean and professional, they say first impressions last and the old saying is completely true. If you land on a web site that is visually unattractive you run the risk of losing a potential customer, some people are really funny and are put off by the least thing. Be certain that your web site looks the part; it may be the difference between winning and losing potential customers.

The overall success of any on line business hinges on a number of factors and one of these components is your web site and the way it delivers your product or service. The other major factor is being found by your customers on line, now this is a thoroughly different ball game in relation to the design and set up of your web site. You can spend a good deal of time designing a visually stunning web site that is easy to use and navigate but what is the point when not one person can find it. This is where search engine optimisation plays it part. Search engine optimisation is the art of placing your web site on the first page of Google and without it you will not be found. Your site needs to be on the first page of Google in order for your customers to find your site.

Although I can build websites with html or use Dreamweaver and Frontpage I am not an expert website designer and to be honest I struggle with software and scripts. Accepting my limitations I bought the XSitePro web design software in 2007 and upgraded to XSitePro V2 last year.

When I first got XSitePro I built my digital download site solely using that. Used Paypal as my payment processor and had thank you pages with download links for every product. It was a cheerful but not very professional looking site. I was fond of my efforts but there were problems with my download links being accessed by cheats and as time passed I began to cringe at the unprofessional look of my website.

As I had made a major investment in some software called Memberspeed I decided to rebuild the site using that. Although the software was intended to build membership sites it has a shopping cart and article directory which meant that I would get regularly updated content to help the site along in the search engines.

Fine but the fatal flaws were that using the software was time consuming and difficult for me to figure out and that it wasn’t flexible enough. For somebody with greater website design skills it might not be a problem but for me it was. My website looked more professional on the surface because I used a ready built Memberspeed template, but the shopping cart looked an uninviting mess that I simply did not have the skills to rectify.

Sales disappeared and another solution was called for. I wanted part of the solution to be XSitePro V2 because I love working with it. I have tried to use other shopping carts but find them difficult to understand and I don’t find them flexible enough for my limited skills. I had regularly seen posts in forums about using DLGuard as a shopping cart, or indeed paying memberships. Most but not all of the posters recommended DLGuard, but not everybody is going to like the same thing.

One day a question was asked about whether or not DLGuard could be integrated with XSitePro V2. The replies were all in the positive and when I checked out some of the sites indicated as using both I was quite impressed. A timely payment from Google Adsense was deposited into my PayPal account so I thought ‘go on girl go for it’.

I bought DLGuard for the princely sum of $146.05 including VAT. Before I could use it I needed to build the bones of a site, and being an impatient bod it was a good job that I had the speed of XSitePro. I used XHeader (a freebie with XSitePro V2) to make the header and utilised the many inbuilt design features to build the rest of the site. Not perfect but it looks more professional than my first digital download site and I can make alterations very easily.

My next step was to unzip DLGuard and upload it to my website following quite easy instructions. It wasn’t long before I’d uploaded my first product and added my Getresponse autoresponder details. That’s built in with both XSitePro and DLGuard so that was the easy part.

My next step was to redesign the DLGuard shopping cart to make it look like my website design. I sat and looked at the screen, scratched my head a few times before I decided that I was out of my depth. I went on to the DLGuard and XSitePro forums looking for how to tutorials and couldn’t find any. I thought about it for a while and decided that the only way to do what I wanted was to experiment.

I had a list of alterable DLGuard pages so I visited my sites Cpanel and viewed the source files. I wanted to edit them but being cautious I copied the source files into notepad before I began. That way if I boobed I would be able to replace the original source files.

An hour later I had added my new header to the shopping cart, altered the background colour and a few other things to give the appearance of integration. Considering how hopeless I am with scripts and software and my lack of design expertise I have surprised myself with what I have achieved.

My website now has an integrated shopping cart and my downloads are secure from cheats. It has flexibility in that I can add articles and reviews quickly and whenever I want. To my eyes it looks better than the previous two designs and it’s even started to make sales again after a spell in the doldrums.

One little glitch was with my first sale on the new site. I had redesigned the product download page and to check to see if everything was working I reduced a product to $0.01 and bought it with a joint Paypal account that I have with a partner. As I was testing I got called away and when I got back to my computer somebody else had bought the product and told me that the download link didn’t work. No it didn’t because I hadn’t uploaded the blooming product at that point. But, never mind the lower price than normal sale tested the rest of the work that I’d done and showed me that yes XSitePro and DLGuard do work together and it isn’t all that difficult.

Quality matters. Be it website design, or website content, or website development, quality is the key to survival and success for a business on the competitive marketplace. If you need a website to represent your business and make it stand out from other businesses in the same niche, quality design of the website must be your priority. And, only professional web design services can promise it. Where and how to locate a professional web design company, since the list of web design companies is very long? Here are the tips to help you out:

Checking portfolios of web design companies online:-

Dont go with the catalogs speaking highly of web design service providers. Make a list of web design companies whose service packages fit in your budget. Based on the compatibility between your budget and the fees, charged by those companies for web design services, do click your way to their websites. Portfolio is the most important section of a web design company website. Make sure to visit this section and browse it.

Comparing professional web design service portfolios:-

It is the portfolio that gives a peek into the web design projects that a company has successfully handled till date, and a fair idea about the quality of its web design services. Comparing the portfolios of two or three or more web design companies is the most tried tip to select the best of them. Apart from this, a website design portfolio helps evaluate the creativity and innovation level, one of the parameters for measuring the quality of custom web design services.

Checking the functionality of websites:-

Besides great look and feel of a website, what defines the quality of professional web design services is the topnotch functionality of the website. A website is supposed to have smooth functionality, if its navigation system is solid and consists of easily navigable interlinks. A quality website ensures enhanced browsing experience. Make sure to choose from the professional web design companies which design websites with such user-friendly functionality.

Checking design and function of website interfaces:-

Evaluating the quality of website interfaces designed by the web design companies in your list is another useful tip to find out the best professional web design company. The interface of a website should be user-friendly and SEO friendly. It is the interface that leads visitors to the different sections of a website. Check the design and functional aspects of website interfaces in the portfolios of your listed companies before investing in the web design services of the best of those.

Checking if web design services are SEO oriented:-

Checking the search engine friendliness of websites designed by the companies you have listed is another useful tip for you to follow in order to find a professional web design company. A website may have great look and feel. If its features are not search engine friendly, you wont be able to get the best of it in terms of traffic, and therefore chances to reap good returns are slim. Make sure to check with the companies if their web design services are SEO oriented.

Here is how to know when to visit a web design Melbourne company is best for your situation:
