HTML

Is HTML any good when making suffisticated websites. Or is ussing other scripts better.

Do you want on your website a login feature? how about a forum? what about a template sistem so that you don`t have to go through every page when you want to modify something? want a chat-room maybe? user-submitted posts, downloads, etc etc etc? Then yes you will need to use a programming language like PHP with a backend in MySql for your databases...if all you want is to build a simple presentation website then you can use just html with pretty pictures and probably some flash.
But an even better response would be this: look at your favorite sites.The ones you visit every day. Do they use HTML or PHP?

Hope this helped

It basically boils down to this: if you want a static webpage (without or with limited user interaction) use html, if you want your webpage to be able to change dynamically by interacting with the user, use scripts like php etc

However for those other scripts you need to know HTML anyway Wink
raver
well if you are planning to do something in PHP it is assumed that you do know html....although a WYSIWYG editor would do the trick Wink

If you use WYSIWYG you will have to tweek it to make it work.

So you need some HTML knowledge.

Download 1st Page, it's an HTML editor with an instant preview tab

that enables you to alter the HTML and see the resuls straight away.


Oh, and its totaly free!


Have fun.

You can still run a pretty interactive website without any PHP at all, just use a mix of HTML and Javascript and maybe Server Side Includes.

HTML for the basic structure of your site

Javascript for anything ranging from Popup's to Form Validation

And SSI (Server Side Includes) to easily update allyour pages by just editing 1 file

But if all this sounds to confusing Just stick to PHP or use a content management system - http://www.mamboserver.com

Hand coding is good for creating dynamic page which complies to W3C's standard, in my opinion.

HTML works fine with static pages. when it comes to interactive solution ,you should use PHP ,ASP,ASP.NET ..etc. what i mean with interactive that the website interacts with a database -Mysql,sql ..- ,or a web-service or may be with other servers.

But even if you use php or another server side script, you use HTML for output.

i guess html is ok. but are there any donw sides to using this than using different and more powerful scripting languages?

PHP and DHTML are good for dynamic, static webpages. But simple pages done with HTML are also good. Fancy is too hard for HTML.

Not everyone either has javascript or has it enabled though so I think it's better to use a server side language such as PHP.

Right to set the record straight!
HTML is used everywhere to format things, provide structure through tables and divs etc and other things such as creating forms, displaying images etc.

programming Languages such as PHP, javascript etc are used to process something. If you want to send a form you will have to a programming langauge as HTML will display the formbut the programing language will process it.

Basiclly you will most likely use HTML. If you dont your odd. Another programing langauge will add interactivity to your HTMl pages
