Spent more time than I expected going through the tags. Some of them I already knew and some were new to me. Nice to have the reference.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
HTML gives content structure and it does this by using tags. In later challenges you'll explore the exact nature of tags in more depth but for now think of them as things that give structure.
The HTML is getting clearer to me after going through the literature. I have been seeing <> </> but i now know what they stand for. I sometimes see some element having open but no close tag. The literature made it clear to me that they are what we called void element.
I can off memory give the following open and close tags
Thanks to any person that contribute to platform
This is the start of the challenge so far I guess. Read and understood all, but I think as mentioned below by algotruneman, we understand more of <span>, <div> and also <nav> with CSS. I absolutely dont know what is CSS; hope to learn in the coming challenges.
The div and span tags are really best understood in the context of CSS styling.
<span style="font-size: 150%;"> allows you to isolate a section</span> of a sentence, paragraph, etc. and apply a set of styles to just that span.
Similarly, div tags allow styles to modify segments of your page. Header/main/footer, for example so that they have different characteristics.
None of the challenges in this particular P2PU cover these concepts, but it will be a good idea to plan to learn them so your sites are easier to maintain. CSS has lots of power.
I knew most of these, but the HTML5 ones were new to me. I really need to find a free HTML5 course.
I used workflowy.com to make my notes. Have you used WorkFlowy? I love it! It's a little hard to explain, you just need to go play with it, but I'll just say that it's a really simple way to take notes, make to-do lists, all kinds of stuff.
