Displays collapsible content panels for presenting information in a limited amount of space.
Click headers to expand/collapse content that is broken into logical sections, much like tabs. Optionally, toggle sections open/closed on mouseover. This includes errors in code, more organized layout for code, and making sure IDs and classes are identified properly. Poorly-coded pages are sometimes colloquially called tag soup.
Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted.
This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts.
There are two primary jobs involved in creating a website: the web designer and web developer, who often work closely together on a website. The web designers are responsible for the visual aspect, which includes the layout, coloring and typography of a web page. Web designers will also have a working knowledge of markup languages such as HTML and CSS, although the extent of their knowledge will differ from one web designer to another.
Further jobs which may become involved in the creation of a website include:
Typography is the work of typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic designers, art directors, manga artists, comic book artists, graffiti artists, and now—anyone who arranges words, letters, numbers, and symbols for publication, display, or distribution—from clerical workers and newsletter writers to anyone self-publishing materials. Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations.
So at a time when scientific techniques can support the proven traditions through understanding the limitations of human vision, typography often encountered may fail to achieve its principal objective, effective communication.
In typesetting, color is the overall density of the ink on the page, determined mainly by the typeface, but also by the word spacing.
Spacing and kerning, size-specific spacing, character variation, width, weight, and contrast of the text.
Traditionally, text is composed to create a readable and visually satisfying typeface that works invisibly, without the awareness of the reader.
With printed media, typographers also are concerned with binding margins, paper selection, and printing methods.
