About Web Design

Web design is the process of designing and presenting content,  usually hypertext or a form of hypermedia, that is delivered to end-users through the World Wide Web, by means of a Web browser or other Web-enabled software like microblogging  clients and RSS readers.

What is a website?

Elements such as text, bit-mapped images (GIFs, JPEGs) and forms may be placed on the page using HTML/XHTML tags. Plug-ins like Adobe Flash, QuickTime, Java run-time environment,  ect.  are also embedded into web page by using HTML/XHTML tags  to display more complex media like vector graphics, animations, videos, and sounds.

Improvements in web browsers compliance with standards have prompted a widespread usage of XHTML/XML in conjunction with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to position and manipulate web page elements and objects.
