    Making a web page


    Hi all

    It has been a while, but I am going to make a Web page for a friends business, free of charge.

    It is of more benefit for me to have a site in resume/portfolio.
    So I am keeping my hand in, though I am not a professional developer.

    Will be probably posting some questions here and there and as matter of fact I have one ALREADY!

    I have yet to do a lot of reading but what is the standard (most supported) HTML?

    BTW I am reading some ''stickys'' in this section at present.

    Thanks

    Dan

    And what exactly was your question in this thread?

    If you want an answer, you might want to actually ask something.

    He did ask a question: Do you want to take a crack at it or should I?

    October is a busy month for many people, so they might not be spending much time here.

    There's no guarantee that a thread you create in a forum will get a reply. Also your thread title was very generic and you buried your actual question within the rest of what you said, both of which decrease the likelihood of getting a quality response.

    Remember people spend most of their time on other people's sites (so don't violate web design conventions).

    Ah sorry. yes I did miss that. Like you said.. buried in the post and I didn't see it.

    I'm happy for you to have a crack at answer this. I'd say that if you're starting now you might as well learn HTML5 as that's (going to be) the standard around. HTML5 uses most of the same tags and attributes that HTML4 does, so it's a pretty easy transition unless you want to get into drawing on the canvas elements.
