This page has been assembled to show all the common tools and terms associated with a web page. Reprints of this page must include the Meat Handler Company name and web address www.meathandler.com (our URL).
A page is composed of text, graphics, and other components.
Across the top you can see our company name, then the page title. The title is set up as a "page banner" with a red, yellow, and blue graphic. Under that is a "horizontal navigation bar" showing all the "top level" pages.
Underlined text is usually a
"hyperlink" or "link"
that can take you to a
place of interest by clicking on it. For example, <Click here>
to go to the Tables Section.
"buttons" are graphics (pictures or artwork) that are also links to
other parts of the page, site, or even different sites. Click
on either pumpkin button to jump to the Tables Section below.
A "hit counter" shows how many times a page or site has been accessed:
people have visited here.
A "table" organizes information, graphics, and helps with page layout. Table gridlines can be visible or invisible. Each entry is called a "cell". Here is an example of a table and some of the things that can be done with one.
A "marquee" can attract attention but is often too much for most pages:
"Hover buttons" change colors or react when the user mouses over them:
Using "text search" lets a user find a page or part of a page that holds the words a user is looking for. Enter a search word here:
"User input forms" collect any information desired. The requested info is entered by a user and passed by the system to someone as a file, email, or database.
Below we see the page footer. This info appears on all or most of the pages of the web site. It is typical to include copyright and trademark info at the bottom of pages. Navigational toolbars allow the user to proceed as needed without returning to the top of the page.
This page has a "bookmark" at the top of it so you can click here to go to that bookmark.
We hope this little sample page has helped you with terms and ideas that will help make your web site interesting and effective! This page can be printed and distributed in it's entirety.
