“Semantic” vs. “Visual” Markup

Filed under: accessibility,Website Design/CSS — wholeshebang @ 5:21 am

Here is an article I found explaining the difference between “semantic” and “visual” markup. It maybe isn’t the clearest thing in the world to those who don’t write any kind of webpages at all…for such an audience it would be better off to start with the pros and cons of the two approaches, then to follow with concrete examples of the effects of each on portability and accessibility.

Why, you ask, would one care how clear the article would be to non-coders? Why, because people brand-new to coding webpages (or contemplating it) are the most important audience, of course!

Still, worth reading.
