This course introduces web designers to the nuts and bolts of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the programming language used to create web pages. Author Bill Weinman explains what HTML is, how it's structured, and presents the major tags and features of the language. Discover how to format text and lists, add images and flow text around them, link to other pages and sites, embed audio and video, and create HTML forms. Additional tutorials cover the new elements in HTML5, the latest version of HTML, and prepare you to start working with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Microdata is a HTML5 specification for adding rich semantics to web content. This is a finer grained semantics than can be achieved with the semantic tags used by HTML itself. Microdata is designed to provide machine-readable labels to allow scripts to provide services that are customized to the page, or enable content from a variety of sources to be processed by a single script in a consistent manner. Microdata supports the use of vocabularies to define name-value pairs to assign values to properties.
You may define your own vocabularies for your own purposes or use one of the publicly available vocabularies, such as those at schema.org. Currently, none of the major browsers support microdata natively. Other than private uses, the only current real-world usage for microdata is Google's support for microdata in their search engines. Google operates a page for testing microdata as part of their webmaster tools. We will take a look at this in the next movie. Microdata is a new feature in HTML5, Currently, it's used by Google to enhance indexing in its search engine.
