CAWD Styling

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) use a separate language from HTML. CSS allows you to apply consistent styling of elements across all pages on your site, so that all headings, lists, and paragraphs look and act the same on every page of a site.

The W3C’s philosophy in terms of how HTML and CSS should fit together is (1) use HTML elements to specify a web page’s content, and (2) use CSS to specify a web page’s appearance. There are lots and lots of CSS properties that enable you to determine a web page’s appearance. In this course, we’ll cover quite a few of those properties, but not even close to all of them.

The most tangible part of responsive web design , from the point of view of CSS, is the use of fluid layouts that adapt based on the size of the viewport.

Web Applications

Web Developers build web applications. A web application is one that helps an organization run its business online. ​​Most web applications are built in a three-tier architecture that consists of three important layers: data, logic, and presentation. In web applications, the application structure usually breaks down to database, server, and client, while in modern web development; it can also be broken into database, server logic, client logic, and client UI.

Dynamic web pages are known as pages that are created as soon as a call is sent to the server. So data can be built interactively into the sites. They are particularly helpful when you need to react to user inputs. Forms can be evaluated immediately and the content of the next page can be shown. The application possibilities are nearly unlimited. Whether and to which extent databases are used depends on the goal. Dynamic web pages actually do not need a database.

A popular paradigm for implementing this model is the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern. In the MVC paradigm, the logic, data, and visualization are separated into three types of object, each handling its own tasks. The View handles the visual part, taking care of user interaction. The Controller responds to system and user events, commanding the Model and View to change appropriately. The Model handles data manipulation, responding to requests for information or changing its state according to the Controller’s instructions.
