HTML Tips, Codes and Tags
When you begin designing your web pages, you may find that many HTML courses fall short when it comes to providing you with special effect HTML tips and codes.
Although HTML tutorials will provide you with an overview of HTML and website design, unfortunately, that’s about it. They usually don’t provide you with the little HTML tips and tricks that are used to create special effects within your web pages.
When trying to decide what HTML codes to use within your web pages, keep in mind, if it doesn’t enhance your web page, it’s probably best to leave it out, as the more special effects you add to your page, the longer your page will take to load.
In addition, prior to using any of these HTML Tips within your web pages, you must ensure that the effect you’re trying to achieve doesn’t irritate your visitors.
For example, using HTML codes that load web pages within web pages may crash your visitors browser. In addition, using excessive pop up windows, frames and placing scrolling text within the status bar can be very irritating to your visitors.
Please ensure you select your special HTML codes very carefully and use them to assist you in your web design endeavors.

Website Design Tips
When you begin designing your website, try to keep your main HTML page as small as possible. For example, instead of trying to cram all your information into a single web page, consider creating sections for your content. These sections can contain highlights of your content with a link to further information. You can set up your content sections in HTML tables with colored heading sections for information, such as articles, products or whatever you’d like.
To keep your main HTML page smaller, it is much better to keep it down to the most essential elements. You can then use links to additional pages to provide the detailed information. A good rule of thumb is Less is More.
To enhance your web page, you can format your text using bold headlines, colored HTML table cells, and graphic bullets and/or arrows.
If you use the same graphic bullets and arrows throughout your page, you can enhance your page’s appearance, but you won’t add any additional time to your web page load time. When you reuse an image, your image only has to load once. When the image has loaded, it will instantly be displayed in all of the other locations.
