Structure and Visualization

  • Do not use the <font> element
  • Move arrangement attributes (align, valign, width, height) to CSS.
  • Do not use tables except showing table data. Using tables for visual formatting is acceptable in complex situations only. Max table nesting can not be great than 3.
  • Move attribute "background" to CSS.
  • Design of input fields and buttons must be written as class in CSS.
  • Styles must be written as external file and linked using<link>.
