Web Design - Freelance Web Designer Business Kit & Books
What is Web Design? Web design is the design or designing of a web page or web site.
When the Internet was first invented, web design consisted of a very basic markup language that included some formatting options, and the unique ability to link pages together using hyperlinks.
As the web and web design progressed, the markup language used to make it, known as HTML, became more complex and flexible. Things like tables, which could be used to display tabular information, were soon subverted for use as invisible layout devices. With the advent of Cascading style sheets (CSS), table based layout is increasingly regarded as outdated. Database integration technologies such as Server scripts (see PHP, ASP, JSP, and CFM) and design standards like CSS further changed and enhanced the way the web was made. The introduction of Macromedia Flash into an already interactivity-ready scene has further changed the face of the web, giving new power to designers and media creators, and offering new interactivity features to users.
