You know the feeling: you try to open a website that takes ages to load, then once it does it lags or doesn’t respond and tells you there are missing plug-ins. Sometimes the page cannot be displayed. Or perhaps it only works with Internet Explorer.
Inappropriate or unsuitable techniques – particularly when combined with poor programming – can render a perfectly good Internet page totally unusable and send potential customers beating a hasty retreat. Being well-informed about the components and techniques involved in modern website programming is therefore invaluable – and the specialists at Linguapoly can help you.
Web browsers such as Firefox or Internet Explorer interact with a web server based on HTML, a simple, text-based mark-up language. HTML was developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 but soon reached its limits and was no longer able to meet functionality and design requirements. Therefore, HTML was quickly expanded with XHTML, CSS and XML, while numerous other techniques and languages for page descriptions were created. HTML is able to depict and position text in various sizes and forms, albeit not as precisely as the more recent DTP programs such as Pagemaker or Quark Express.
Linguapoly is well aware that improved graphics and additional graphic effects (in addition to the demand for interactive and automatically generated sites) have led to the creation of language extensions.
