So, from now on, my blog will be located at http://blog.antonywilliams.com
I will now have a portal (which, among other things, links to this blog) now located at www.antonywilliams.com. Check it out.
It may seem like a simple webpage, but It did take a little while due to the learning curve.
I’m using JQuery and lavaLamp (among other things).
Mostly, I just wanted an excuse to learn and write XHTML. I was shocked at just how much HTML has changed since I last used it. As I started to learn, I realized that (since HTML has changed so much) you can tell the browser which version of HTML you are using. Also, you can tell it that you’re writing in a mixture (Transitional, which presumably means you’re gradually trying to switch over to the new stuff) of old/new, old, or new.
Since I was starting from scratch, I figured I’d go straight with XHTML using this at the top of my index.html
This tells the web browser that I’m only XHTML, with no old stuff.
While coding, I came across a cool way to check if you’re writing valid code. To test, just go to this site: http://validator.w3.org/
You can put your URL in there, and it will tell you if you’re correctly following the specs you claim to follow (in my case, I’m claiming strict compliance to XHTML 1.0)
Let me know what you think of my new site
