Looks aren't everything. What's under the hood matters. You wouldn't buy a car if you didn't have some idea of the quality, speed, efficiency and technology of the underlying machine. You shouldn't buy a website that doesn't have competant, standards compliant programming either.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was organized by the people who created the internet to establish the standards by which information would be tagged, documented and programmed for consistant, universal access …by everyone, everywhere.
At the bottom of this page you will find two links that will take you to the W3C page(s) which validate that the programming on this page complies with their standards. If you have a website that doesn't validate then you can't be sure it is being presented properly to all the visitors to your site. Remember, there are many different web browsers and operating systems besides the ones you are using. How do you know your website is not falling apart on another person's computer? That's why standards are important.
We also provide "server side" programming. SSI (Server Side Includes) are directives that are placed in your pages, and evaluated by the server while the pages are being loaded. They let you add dynamically generated content such as page counters, form processing, current date and time, etc. CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is a way to include more comprehensive server side calculations to provide database and shopping cart solutions. We can even create an interface for you to change the content of your website yourself through a web browser page on your site.
Just a few of the possible uses of dynamic programming:
- Banner ads with display and clickthrough counts
- GuestbooksPolls and Quizzes
- Password protected pages
- Database searches
- Website generated eMail
- Shopping cart and online transactions
Just a word about CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and their use in the new generation of websites. Stylesheets enable web designers to separate content from style. A web page can be built structurally sound so that it's appearance can be modified simply by referring a different stylesheet, just like you change your appearance by changing clothes. This requires thoughtful planning and meticulous execution of both the webpage programming and the stylesheet(s) programming. The benefits are that you can call a stylesheet so that your site looks it's best on a computer web browser; looks its best when sent to the printer to be printed on a letter size piece of paper; even optimized to be useable on a PDA or Blackberry device!
Be sure to let us know if you desire this extra functionality which will serve the purpose of presenting your website in the best possible manner to the most people, and thereby demonstrate the pride you take in your enterprise.
