Yup, I changed the layout. Now I've got a music theme!

Welcome to my HTML reference page! ^________^ It's not an HTML tutorial, so if you're new to this language, you should check someplace else. This page has the dubious goal of paraphrasing the HTML specification into normal English. Or rather, parts of it. I haven't gotten very far yet and.. well, there are quite a few things I don't understand! So those get skipped. ^^;;

Some Basic HTML Coding Rules:

Side Notes:

Why do I use upper case? Since I'm coding HTML, not XHTML, I have the option to use upper-case. I chose upper-case for the tag names because it makes them stand out from the rest of the document. Also, within this website, it is easier to distinguish tags from other bits of code (e.g. attributes, for which I use lower-case) because I use upper-case. I'm trying to get into the habit of using lower-case for HTML that's not part of this site, though.

If you look at the source code for my pages (not the examples), you'll notice that contrary to my usual habits, I use lower-case for <p>. That's just because I feel like it, really. (It's bad form.)
