Conducting your website design processes does not only pertain on using the lingua franca of the web which is HTML but it entails the use of the different scripting languages involved in the different layers of the website. There are several layers of a website and each layer is controlled by a specific scripting language. This is done in order to make sure that every layer of a website design would function properly according to the needs and wants of the website designer.
What Are the Layers and Web Design Scripting Languages?
The different website layers are the following:
1. Structural Layer – this layer is where the structure of the website is developed. It is associated with the use of the lingua franca of the internet and this is the Hypertext markup language. This is where the framework of the website is going to be developed.
2. Presentation Layer – it is through this layer where the designs of the website are incorporated. Designing the website is made possible by using the Cascading Style Sheet scripting language. The latest version of CSS is version 3.
The New CSS3
It is in the presentation layer that the web design is manipulated and through the Cascading Style Sheet the design is controlled. In CSS 3 or the latest version of the Cascading Style Sheet text decorations or designs are now made possible, especially that of adding shadows. This new text design manipulation can be done using the text-shadow CSS property.
The text shadow CSS property is compatible if viewed using Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari and Google Chrome. Through the text-shadow property you can increase the presentation of the text without having to resort to graphic design.
