Having a web design that looks great is only one part of the process. We take each website design and develop it into W3C standards compliant pages that are search engine friendly and cross browser compatible (yes they will also look good on your iPhone!). Gone are the days where a website just had to work in Internet Explorer, our websites are now tested in Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome.
We develop our websites using a number of coding languages, below we explain each:
XHTML is the foundation coding language behind most websites. It provides the ability to give a website structure through the use of various tags. These tags are used to structure items such as text (<p>Example Text</p>), lists (<ul><li>Example List</li></ul>), links (<a href="www.example.com" title="Example Link">Example Link</a>) plus many more.
CSS is a complimentary coding language to XHTML, it is used to give XHTML appearance and layout. Sizes, colours, backgrounds, paddings, widths and heights are just a few of the things CSS can define. All websites should be built with CSS so that structure and design can be kept seperate.
PHP is a very powerful language and is used for the advanced functionality of a website, a few examples would be shopping carts, search facilities, login areas and content management systems. If you want something bespoke on your website then there is a very high chance it will be possible to do it in PHP.
MySQL is where all of the information that is displayed on a website is usually kept, MySQL can store your website content, customer details, product lists (online shops) and pretty much anything else that can be put into a database.
All of the above languages are used in the websites we produce.
