HTML 4 For Dummies - Bonus Chapters

Why Test Your Pages?

Always test your pages. Try to avoid reading this on the comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html newsgroup and realizing that you’re the “Netclown”:

“Did you see that mess of a home page Netclown put up yesterday?”

“Yeah. What a rookie! He forgot to close a heading tag and I got inch-high text for a zillion screens.”

“That was a bummer. Did you run into the missing links, too? I guess he’s never heard of testing before publishing.”

Get the picture?
