All web browsers must act as translators. These browsers translate the text written in HTML format and then display the content on a web page. Each browser has its own capabilities and modes for translating texts. This is the source of the main differences between browsers. Although there is a standard set of rules for scripting HTML code, interpretation or translation adds up to most differences.
Typically, there are differences between different versions of browsers, as the newer versions can usually decode new HTML scripts better than the older ones. New browser versions offer a better display compared to older versions. Nevertheless, most online users assume that both the functions and the add-ons are creating new versions, and they download them taking this into account. Therefore, it is always advisable for website developers and designers to develop websites that support at least the last three browser versions.
In addition to browser differences, the browser compatibility also plays the role of whether the online surfer uses a normal PC and whether the operating system is Windows, Mac or Linux. In most cases, the same browser can render the web pages of all these platforms slightly different. Web developers should ensure that the website is compatible with all browsers on all operating systems.
The deviations can also occur as a result of different screen sizes and resolutions of the various computers, which must also be taken into account in the website development.
Web standards are rules and guidelines established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to enhance the consistency of the design code that constitutes a web page. Without being technical, it is simply the policy of marking the language that determines how a web page works. This is displayed in the browser window of the visitor.
Complying with these rules has many advantages:
Web pages are displayed on a variety of browsers and computers, including new technologies such as iPhone, Droids, iPads, PDAs and mobile phones. This increases the number of viewers.
W3C standards encourage the use of “cascading style sheets” (CSS) or the design code attached to the site. Instead of being embedded in the page. Using style sheets significantly reduces the size of the page file. This does not just mean faster loading of pages, but also lower hosting costs for frequently visited sites due to lower bandwidth.
Design features such as colors and fonts can be easily changed by changing only one sheet of style instead of editing each page of a site. This will reduce the cost of site change.
Search engines can more effectively access pages developed for web standards
Affordable formats, sometimes called alternative formats, are ways to present printed, written or visual materials so that people who do not read the print can access them. People who do not read the print can:
Be blind or visually impaired
Have a learning disability that affects reading.
You have a physical disability and can not retain or turn pages.
Here we describe briefly what are some of the common formats available. We also discussed many things to read that are not yet available in these formats.
