Web Site Design


Jacksonville Web Design constructs its custom web pages with two main components XHTML 1.0 and CSS.

XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) uses the well-known language of HTML in an XML framework. Like HTML, it describes the structure of web pages, but hold fasts to the stricter rules of XML.

Benefits of Using XHTML

  • Accessibility & Interoperability: XHTML is readable by the largest number of browsers and other devices such as mobile phones, assistive technologies (i.e. screen readers) and PDAs.
  • Superior Code: XHTML is the current Web Design Standard for markup, replacing HTML 4. The adherence by XHTML to stricter guidelines results in cleaner code, so pages are smaller, load faster, and render correctly. As the current Web Design Standard for markup, constructing a website with XHTML will also ensure compatible with future devices.
  • XML Support: XHTML is designed to work well with other XML-based markup languages, applications, and protocols - an advantage that HTML lacks. As the web moves progressively towards an XML standard, you will be ready to take full advantage of the number of XML tools available to improve your website.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are used for the presentational aspect of web pages by controlling colors, typography, and the size and placement of elements and images.

Benefits of Using Cascading Style Sheets

  • Design Consistency: A single CSS file can control the appearance of an entire site and by applying consistent elements to each page you can present visitors with a constant design scheme throughout your Website.
  • Trouble-free maintenance: Style sheets are kept separate from markup so instead of going back and altering every single page of your site to make a change you only need to modify the relevant style sheet and all pages that use that particular style sheet will be updated quickly and easily.
  • Saves resources: CSS is bandwidth friendly because external style sheets are stored only once when they are first requested and loaded (cached) thus helping to conserve both server and visitor bandwidth and allowing pages to load faster.
