You may easily become overwhelmed when you are learning how to design your own web page .  Web design presents information graphically on the Internet through Web sites and Web applications for a variety of purposes from commercial to personal .  This article will discuss the elements of web design and its goals and purposes .  It will also describe different types of web sites that require specific design elements and current trends in web design .

Web design content is organized by a variety of languages and media .  The most popular languages when learning how to design your own web page are HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the most recent language, XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) .

HTML is the original and primary authoring language for creating documents on the World Wide Web .  It creates the layout and structure of web pages by using tags and attributes .  Tags are commands within a document that specify format .  Tags also specify hypertext links, which allow users to move to other web pages with the click of a mouse, thereby maneuvering through the web according to specific needs .  Each tag appears in brackets .  For example, the basic structure of an HTML document beginspecific content BODY> .

There is an entire language of other tags to further specify the format and layout of the page .  Attributes further define the formatting properties of an HTML tag, such as the properties of a table that might be included in a tag .  CSS is a feature added to HTML to give designers and users more control over how a page is displayed .  Style sheets are files that define the layout of a page .  They are like templates that define the stylistic parameters of a page such as page, size, fonts, and margins .  They are particularly useful because the same style sheet can be applied to many different documents .  The 'cascading' element of CSS's stems from the fact that several style sheets can be applied simultaneously to the same web page, thereby further specifying the details of the layout .
