Wanna be on my top 8? 16? 20?

HTML and MySpace

Who remembers copy and pasting HTML codes from websites into your MySpace profile to have cool backgrounds?  Well this used to be very popular when we all had MySpace and now most people don’t even know how to use HTML. HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets. The purpose of a web browser is to read HTML documents and compose them into visible or audible web pages. The browser does not display the HTML tags, but uses the tags to interpret the content of the page. HTML describes the structure of a website semantically along with cues for presentation, making it a markup language rather than a programming language. HTML elements form the building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to create interactive forms. It provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items. It can embed scripts written in languages such as JavaScript which affect the behavior of HTML web pages.

Inserting video links and songs onto your page was the newest and hip thing to do. But many have overlooked why they made it possible. The technology and code written is in depth and takes a good knowledge of how to write HTML code. I only personally know a few tricks and lines, but there are infinite things you can learn from writing HTML.

The top 8 debate was one of things that made or broke a friendship. I remember when MySpace made it an option to have more than 8 top friends. There was a way to make it up to 32. Now that’s a lot of code. I pressed ctrl-u while typing this blog, and there were more than 3600 lines of code alone. Talk about wow.

Congrats on reading this all the way through. Go Wizards!
