Web Page Design

Web Publishing Tools, Techniques and Methods

There are two types of web publishing tools.  The first type is "code centric".  It simply assists the web author to write and validate HTML code.

The second type, is "page centric".  It uses a WYSIWYG user interface (What You See Is What You Get) to build websites.

Most WYSIWYG editors also provide the ability to add or modify HTML code directly, should that be required.

Web publishing applications are now very sophisticated and can generate clean HTML code.  Consequently, there is normally no need to write program code anymore.

It is important, however, that a web authoring tool has the ability to insert additional HTML code (or scripts) when needed.

It is equally important that the code that is manually is not obliterated when changes are subsequently made using the WYSIWYG user interface.

Modern WYSIWYG web authoring applications permit users to structure web pages and to add text and graphics.  They also allow hyperlinks to be added so that visitors can navigate from one web page to another.
