How are you all doing? I get so confused at times with what is the correct ways to write/type things out.
Like how many of certain characters and punctuations we need to put.
For example, in the address bar it will begin with maybe having one slash between com and loader
But then later on, it will have even more slashes, like this
So, as you can see it keeps changing, and sometimes will have even more than 3 slashes, just keeps changing.
The other thing I keep getting confused about is extensions. I thought extensions come after the period .
But sometimes I keep seeing like for the css extension, I would think it would be typed like this .css
but sometimes I see it like this /css
So, with a slash before it, and same with the html extension. Some people seem to be putting a slash before the html.
I also sometimes not sure what parts are considered a tag or not. Like some people have things typed as if they were an attribute.
See, I thought that the very first thing you have typed after the(meaning to the right of) <
is considered the tag. But some people keep referring to it as an attribute. They say the style attribute.
but they have <style>
To be an attribute I would have thought like this <p style="italics">
Here are the things that I have read:
"Attributes are always specified in the start tag"
"Attributes come in name/value pairs like: name="value" "
See, I understand that the angle brackets means it's a tag. But then the other thing that sometimes gets confusing is some people put like the email address in between the brackets. I already know though that my email address does not have any brackets in them. If I did do it that way, would cause an error.
The other thing is the software I use, seems to already do pretty much all the codes, or what I thought was maybe the codes. All I do is type the words and sentences of the document, with the correct punctuations. Like periods at the end of sentences, and question marks at the end of a question, and other things. The only reasons I see to sometimes type those greater than and less than brackets that I keep seeing would be if you are writing a page about math or algebra.
Oh and about the only other thing is sometimes when I try to type. It's like my software messes up and when I hit the enter key, it goes down more than 1 line, and I'm not exactly sure where to change that setting at. Don't see the options that I thought should be there.
