Responsive HTML5 W3C CSS3

W3C Standard

Considering having a W3C, Responsive, HTML5 and CSS3 Website Design compared to a standard website design? A W3C, HTML5 design is the best of the best. It conforms to the newest code standards now and for the future.

If your looking in to a HTML5 Website Design it's best to make it with W3C in mind.

W3C
The World Wide Web Consortium is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential.

A simple example using let’s say an older Internet Explorer 8 Browser or an old version of Firefox within the CSS code to make an upper right hand corner on an image that is square you would have to put this code in for each browser to your CSS file.

-moz-border-radius-topright: 20px;

-webkit-border-top-right-radius 20px;

border-top-right-radius: 20px;

Now with CSS3 we can just use: border-top-right-radius: 20px;
for all browser, that are the latest version of course. Internet Explorer 8 is no longer supported by Microsoft so we don't have to worry about it anymore or version 9 for that matter. Firefox will tell you to update and Chrome automatically updates.


Responsive Website
Responsive
A website that is responsive will automatically adjust its size to fit from anything from your normal computer screen to an IPhone for example. By including the code which is @media in short in your CSS from the get go is the best way to start.

Back in the old days one would have to create different sites to accommodate this same responsive function. Imagine having to create a mini site for all the types of phones or tablets back them.

HTML5
HTML5
Is the latest version of Hypertext Markup Language, the code that describes web pages. It's actually three kinds of code: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript which provides the structure; Cascading Style Sheets which take care of presentation; and JavaScript, which makes things, happen. Most designers are under the impression that they need to save their files as .html but the truth is it’s better to save the file as .php as by combining both you have the flexibility to being able to use PHP functions and MySQL getting the benefit of both worlds.

HTML5 also has an advantage ( among many others ) as you can incorporate videos which usually require a Flash Player and as most of us know Flash does not work on IPhone's and IPad's but HTML5 however will work on all platforms.


CSS3
CSS3
Latest evolution of the Cascading Style Sheets language and aims at extending CSS2.1. It brings a lot of long-awaited novelties, like rounded corners, shadows, gradients, transitions or animations, as well as new layouts like multi-columns, flexible box or grid layouts. Experimental parts are vendor-prefixed and should either be avoided in production environments, or used with extreme caution as both their syntax and semantics can change in the future.


Whatever type of Web Design your you choose I'm here to help. Allot, well almost all businesses need a Web Design like yesterday. What I recommend if this is the case is to get you up as fast as possible, so in most cases if it's not a Shopping Cart where your selling products, a Wordpress is usually the fastest for a service type of business. Afterwards I recommend having a real W3C site such as what is explained on this page built behind the scenes. Google is very aware of the W3C and every kudu you give to Google the more prominent your listings are going to be in the Organic Section ( Free Listings ).

 

PRO’s OF A W3C, HTML5, RESPONSIVE AND CSS3 SITE:

You will have a websites that will last for years to come, perhaps even decades.


CON’s OF A W3C, HTML5, RESPONSIVE AND CSS3 SITE:

Takes a much longer time to build a W3C site as one is constantly checking for W3C errors within the code as well as fixing third party script(s) to be W3C while building the website. Most scripts such as adding a ca lender that was either Open Source or Purchased will not be W3C. About 99% of all scripts written are still using older code. Not that it is bad, but if you want perfection, W3C is the way to go.
