Showcasing Most Used Programming Languages

HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and last major HTML version that is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation. The current specification is known as the HTML Living Standard. It is maintained by the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG), a consortium of the major browser vendors (Apple, Google, Mozilla, and Microsoft).

HTML5 was first released in a public-facing form on 22 January 2008, with a major update and "W3C Recommendation" status in October 2014. Its goals were to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia and other new features; to keep the language both easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices such as web browsers, parsers, etc., without XHTML's rigidity; and to remain backward-compatible with older software. HTML5 is intended to subsume not only HTML 4 but also XHTML 1 and DOM Level 2 HTML.

HTML5 includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations; it extends, improves, and rationalizes the markup available for documents and introduces markup and application programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web applications. For the same reasons, HTML5 is also a candidate for cross-platform mobile applications because it includes features designed with low-powered devices in mind.

Many new syntactic features are included. To natively include and handle multimedia and graphical content, the new <video>, <audio> and <canvas> elements were added, and support for scalable vector graphics (SVG) content and MathML for mathematical formulas was also added. To enrich the semantic content of documents, new page structure elements such as <main>, <section>, <article>, <header>, <footer>, <aside>, <nav>, and <figure> are added. New attributes were introduced, some elements and attributes were removed, and others such as <a>, <cite>, and <menu> were changed, redefined, or standardized. The APIs and Document Object Model (DOM) are now fundamental parts of the HTML5 specification, and HTML5 also better defines the processing for any invalid documents.

HTML5 Tutorial

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language geared towards web development. It was originally created by Danish-Canadian programmer Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. The PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group. PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, but it now stands for the recursive initialism PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.

PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module, a daemon, or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. On a web server, the result of the interpreted and executed PHP code – which may be any type of data, such as generated HTML or binary image data – would form the whole or part of an HTTP response. Various web template systems, web content management systems, and web frameworks exist which can be employed to orchestrate or facilitate the generation of that response. Additionally, PHP can be used for many programming tasks outside the web context, such as standalone graphical applications and robotic drone control. PHP code can also be directly executed from the command line.

The standard PHP interpreter, powered by the Zend Engine, is free software released under the PHP License. PHP has been widely ported and can be deployed on most web servers on a variety of operating systems and platforms.

The PHP language evolved without a written formal specification or standard until 2014, with the original implementation acting as the de facto standard which other implementations aimed to follow. Since 2014, work has gone on to create a formal PHP specification.

W3Techs reports that, as of April 2021, "PHP is used by 79.2% of all the websites whose server-side programming language we know."

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language such as HTML. CSS is a cornerstone technology of the World Wide Web, alongside HTML and JavaScript.

CSS is designed to enable the separation of presentation and content, including layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility; provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics; enable multiple web pages to share formatting by specifying the relevant CSS in a separate .css file, which reduces complexity and repetition in the structural content; and enable the .css file to be cached to improve the page load speed between the pages that share the file and its formatting.

Separation of formatting and content also makes it feasible to present the same markup page in different styles for different rendering methods, such as on-screen, in print, by voice (via speech-based browser or screen reader), and on Braille-based tactile devices. CSS also has rules for alternate formatting if the content is accessed on a mobile device.

The name cascading comes from the specified priority scheme to determine which style rule applies if more than one rule matches a particular element. This cascading priority scheme is predictable.

The CSS specifications are maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Internet media type (MIME type) text/css is registered for use with CSS by RFC 2318 (March 1998). The W3C operates a free CSS validation service for CSS documents.

In addition to HTML, other markup languages support the use of CSS including XHTML, plain XML, SVG, and XUL.

JavaScript, often abbreviated as JS, is a programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification. JavaScript is high-level, often just-in-time compiled and multi-paradigm. It has dynamic typing, prototype-based object orientation, and first-class functions.

Alongside HTML and CSS, JavaScript is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web. Over 97% of websites use its client-side for web page behavior, often incorporating third-party libraries. All major web browsers have a dedicated JavaScript engine to execute the code on the user's device.

As a multi-paradigm language, JavaScript supports event-driven, functional, and imperative programming styles. It has application programming interfaces (APIs) for working with text, dates, regular expressions, standard data structures, and the Document Object Model (DOM).

The ECMAScript standard does not include any input/output (I/O), such as networking, storage, or graphics facilities. In practice, the web browser or other runtime system provides JavaScript APIs for I/O.

JavaScript engines were originally used only in web browsers, but they are now core components of some servers and a variety of applications. The most popular runtime system for this usage is Node.js.

Although there are similarities between JavaScript and Java, including language name, syntax, and respective standard libraries, the two languages are distinct and differ greatly in design.

Digital Blasphemy



It's a shame how the web has gone down over the years because of the advent of Social Media.  It seems that not that long ago everybody had their own website and backgrounds were used a lot. The worst thing Yahoo could have done was after purchasing Geocities they shut it down and all of the hard work that people put into their websites and the community spirit that had grown was destroyed. I was a community leader in the Heartland and then a Yahoo Expert once Geocities was closed.  But then, Yahoo shut down the experts platform too.

JavaScript Strict Mode

What Is JavaScript’s Strict Mode?

Strict mode in JavaScript tightens the rules for certain behaviors. Here's everything you need to know about it.

JavaScript is a forgiving language. Some of its syntaxes is optional, and the language recovers from errors with more grace than many others. But this hand-holding comes with a penalty: it can be easier to introduce bugs, and inconsistent code is harder to read.

Fortunately, if you want to exercise more discipline, there’s an easy way of doing so: strict mode. Strict mode is a way of asking JavaScript to react more decisively when it encounters problems in your code.

Web Design and SEO Company Limited

Mum 'took the plunge' and now has her own web design business

They are a roaring success - and even have their very own office Labrador.

A Plymouth mum ‘took the plunge’ to set up her own web design company – which is now one of the best in the city.

Diana Crabtree started the company in 2015 working from her dining room table one day a week and self-taught herself web design and search engine optimization.

A few years later she went full-time with another web developer, who now is a permanent member of the team, and now she owns her own premises at Reynolds Park in Plympton.

The Web Design and SEO Company are a small team of seven "fantastic" web, SEO, and digital marketing employees – and a Labrador – and who are all working towards the same aim to help local, and national businesses grow and make the most out of digital presence.

Diana had been an employee for over twenty-five years before starting up her own business, and she told PlymouthLive she feels "proud" to have won the '3 Best Rated Website Designers' for the third year in the row.

Diana said: "It was a big move because I had a good job, I worked in my dining room part-time for a couple of years and it was a big decision.

"I have always wanted to run my own business, but have always worked for other people all my life."

"I never came up with the idea that would be good commercially, but then I worked with a company in Estover for five and a half years."

"When I got to 50 I thought I can actually do this myself and thought that I could do it really well- so at that point I thought if I don't do it now, I'm never going to do it."

"I just took the plunge and started to build the business by myself, my team is really creative, my area of business is commercial and helping people grow their businesses."

Staff at The Web Design and SEO Company. October 28, 2021

The Web Design and SEO Company award meant they have faced a rigorous fifty-point inspection that included everything from checking reviews, ratings, reputation, history, complaints, satisfaction and trust and cost to the general excellence- that they passed with flying colours.

They now have close to one-hundred clients, some of who have been there since the early days of opening, from Plymouth, Devon, and Cornwall including Moorland Heating, MLT Plumbing and Heating, Plympton Osteopathic Clinic, and Crownhill Conservatories.

They also work with Plymouth University, Nash and Co, Solicitors, and Tamar Caravan Centre and pride themselves on providing "first-class customer service" to their customers.

Diana told PlymouthLive: "We have had clients who have been with us literally since day one, it's all about building long-term relationships with our customers and really being a trusted partner- and they really do trust us.

"One of our clients had a follow-up meeting and the clients said they were 'so pleased' and 'uplifted' by the new website and to hear that, it makes our jobs really worthwhile."

In May 2019, Diana found her Web Design and SEO Company a new home renting out the top floor of an office that was available at the time.

Before long Diana decided to buy the whole premises which included a garage that has been converted into a staff room, with a fully equipped kitchen, a purpose-built meeting room for staff and clients.

Diana said the reason why she decided not to buy the location straight away was that with the pandemic, she wanted to make sure her business is going to be sustainable in the future.

"We have only been in the office for just over two years, we rented it then bought it. We have done everything really carefully so we know it will be sustainable for the future," she said.

"Downstairs was literally just a garage and we had it completely ripped out and worked with all local people and tradesmen, including one of our clients, who helped us transform it."

"We also have a lovely staff room and a really nice, big meeting room now that we use not only for internal interviews but for our clients who prefer to meet face to face."

"We had a meeting in here yesterday and it was a website we put live a couple of weeks ago and the husband and wife came in with their little boy."

She added: "It's just a nice place for people to come, we welcome them in and make them a cup of tea- it's just a friendly and welcoming place to be."

► What is XHTML?
-XHTML is a variant of HTML that uses the syntax of XML, the Extensible Markup Language. XHTML has all the same elements (for paragraphs, etc.) as the HTML variant, but the syntax is slightly different. Because XHTML is an XML application, you can use other XML tools with it (such as XSLT, a language for transforming XML content).

► What is CSS?
-CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language. The separation of HTML from CSS makes it easier to maintain sites, share style sheets across pages, and tailor pages to different environments. This is referred to as the separation of structure (or: content) from the presentation.

Web Fonts


What is WebFonts? -WebFonts is a technology that enables people to use fonts on-demand over the Web without requiring installation in the operating system. W3C has experience in downloadable fonts through HTML, CSS2, and SVG. Until recently, downloadable fonts have not been common on the Web due to the lack of an interoperable font format. The WebFonts effort plans to address that through the creation of an industry-supported, open font format for the Web (called "WOFF").
