Create a glossary of 10 basic web design terms based on research and defined in your own words. Items from this list can serve as criteria for the website evaluation paper you will complete in the Learning Team assignment.
1. HTML Editor – An application(s) one can use to help create a web page with little or no knowledge of Hypertext Markup Language.
2. Host – provides the infrastructure for web sites such as servers and networking.
3. Internet Service Provider (ISP) – an organization that provides users with access to the Internet and other applications such as email.
4. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) – rules that allow file transfers from computer to computer via the Internet.
5. HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) – rules for file transfers or exchange via the World Wide Web. Primarily these files include text, graphics, sound, and various types of videos.
6. URL (Uniform Resource Locator) - Identifies a resource such as an image or text based on web protocol, its domain name, and its original file location on a web server.
7. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) – defines and controls elements of web pages in regard to how such things like images and text are displayed.
8. Absolute Link – an absolute location for a web site or resource such as http://portal.phoenix.edu/home.html. (I like to refer to absolute links as primary links.)
9. Relative link – is a location within and existing web site such as http://classroom.phoenix.edu/afm215/secure/view-thread.jspa?threadID=35148542. (This location still exists with the University of Phoenix web site but is what I like to refer to as a secondary location because it’s part of the main page.)
10. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) – symbols or code used to translate and display web pages.
