Topic #2 – A Complex Language
During Lesson 3.7, when we talked about animations, you learned about the difference between static and dynamic pages. But just in case you forgot, let’s review it again.
Every single web page that you have made in this class was made with HTML. Even when you took time to make those pages beautiful or aesthetically pleasing, you used a coding language called CSS. But unless you were messing around with the codes, your pages would never change on their own inside the browser. When it comes to design, a web page that doesn’t change or show any movement is called a static web page.
On the other hand, most of the really good websites that you visit are constantly changing. They might have sliding image galleries or pop up advertisements, but there is always something going on. And when it comes to design, a web page that constantly changes or shows movement is called a dynamic web page. You might even see the word DHTML as a way of describing Dynamic Hyper Text Markup Language.
