Summary

In this hour, you have learned how HTML started and the reasons for the move from HTML to XHTML to HTML5. You know the basic differences between HTML 4, XHTML 1, and HTML5 as well as what web applications are and how they relate to the Open Web Standard. You learned how to write a basic HTML web page and why HTML5 fits in so well with mobile devices. You also learned some powerful tips for building mobile web pages.

The most important things to remember from this hour are the best practices for building a website for mobile users:

  • Focus first on building a website or application for every user, not just mobile ones.
  • Determine who your mobile users are and what they are looking for, and present that content to them first, but not only that content.
  • Build a site that uses standards-based technology so that your applications are more future proofed.
  • Always test your sites and applications in as many web browsers and devices as you can.
