HTML (Tables, Forms and Helpers)

  • Bill Buchanan


Chapter 25 introduced HTML; this chapter discusses some of HTML’s more advanced features. HTML differs from compiled languages, such as C and Pascal, in that the HTML text file is interpreted by an interpreter (the browser) while languages such as C and Pascal must be precompiled before they can be run. HTML thus has the advantage that it does not matter if it is the operating system, the browser type or the computer type that reads the HTML file, as the file does not contain any computer specific code. The main disadvantage of interpreted files is that the interpreter does less error checking as it must produce fast results.
