Define your boundaries
Boundaries are needed when building a web page. The process of building web pages tend to be quite complex nowadays. We’re building code upon code to create a website that suffices the modern needs. This gives you a large slurry of code, with complex bugs and different kinds of problems. Take a look at the three basic building blocks of the web and why there’s need to set up some boundaries.
Let’s start with a quote from Wikipedia:
Now take some different perspective on each of them. What aren’t they? HTML isn’t a programming language. HTML doesn’t define the look and layout of the content.
CSS doesn’t describe the structure of the content. CSS isn’t a programming language.
What it does (or can do):
HTML –can — defines the look and layout of the content.
CSS –can — defines the look and layout of the content.
You get the idea. But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
