The WDG's reference section offers background information and technical specifications on HTML authoring. Its main purpose is not to provide browser-specific "hacks", or workarounds for browser bugs or limitations, but to give the correct way to do it. In cases where this may conflict with browsers, there will be a note explaining this.
|The HTML 4.0 Reference covers HTML 4.0, the newest HTML standard. The reference describes all HTML 4.0 elements and their attributes while including examples and notes on usage.|
|The Wilbur section covers HTML 3.2. In this section you will find a list of all tags, including
attributes, syntax, permitted contents and notes on usage.
The HTML reference is now also available in various help
formats (Windows, Mac, OS/2) which can be used offline.
Style sheets can be used to suggest a layout for HTML documents. The
Cascading Style Sheets section offers a complete
overview of CSS1, the most popular standard for style sheets. It has
an introduction, a tutorial and a comprehensive reference. Also available is the CSS Guide in Chinese.
|The character set overview lists
all characters (together with entity names) in the ISO Latin 1 character
set, which is used on the Web.
|In the WDG's Links section, you will find pointers to HTML validators, which can help you catch syntax errors and ensure your documents conform to the standard.|
|To explain the terms used in this reference, a technical glossary is available.|
