Step 5: Learn some HTML tips and tricks
If you want to improve your web development skills, you should also learn some HTML tips and tricks that can help you create better web pages and web sites. HTML is the markup language that defines the structure and content of a web page. HTML5 is the latest version of HTML that introduces new elements, attributes, and features that make web development easier and more efficient. Here are some HTML tips and tricks that you should know:
Use the new HTML5 doctype declaration at the top of your HTML document. It is much simpler than the previous XHTML doctype and tells the browser to render your page in standards mode. The HTML5 doctype declaration is: <!DOCTYPE html>
Use the new HTML5 elements to create semantic and meaningful web pages. HTML5 introduces new elements that describe the content and function of different parts of a web page, such as <header>, <footer>, <nav>, <section>, <article>, <aside>, <figure>, <figcaption>, etc. These elements make your web page more readable and accessible for both humans and machines.
Use the new HTML5 input types and attributes to create user-friendly forms. HTML5 introduces new input types and attributes that allow you to specify the kind of data you want to collect from the user, such as type=\"email\", type=\"number\", type=\"date\", type=\"color\", etc. These input types provide built-in validation and formatting for the user input, as well as native controls for selecting values. You can also use new attributes such as placeholder, required, pattern, min, max, step, etc. to further enhance your form functionality.
