Web Development > Technical Elements
There are many technical elements to web site design. We are skilled in the
following key areas:
All web sites use HTML to a greater or lesser extent.
HTML (Hypertext Mark-up Language) is simply a set of commands that tell your web
browser what to display and how to display it. Many developers use software packages
that automatically generate HTML from their designs. However, this approach produces
inefficient and sometimes inaccurate HTML. With a background in software development
we regard HTML as simply another computer language and write our own HTML code.
Flash is an add-on that is pre-installed on most web
browsers. It allows the developer to implement advanced animations and user
interaction. We have extensive experience of Flash having used it to produce
everything from animated logos to e-cards and even a four minute fully-animated movie.
Standard HTML web pages are static, they are the same every time they
are viewed unless they are modified by a developer. ASP (Active Server Pages) are
dynamic, the content is created on-the-fly whenever a page is opened. The content
varies according to current parameters. For instance, a visitor can be prompted to
enter a user name and password and all subsequent pages will have content relevant
to that person.
All of the web sites we develop are tested for compatibility with the most
popular web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
This ensures that more than 99% of visitors to your web site will be able to view
