Web Publishing 02

Find out about web publishing in this enjoyable KS3 ICT quiz. The intent of web design is to create and publish a website - a collection of online content including documents and applications that reside on a web server/servers. A web server is a computer that is permanently connected to the internet and is accessible by anyone. A website is usually produced on a local computer and then uploaded to the server. In order to become part of the World Wide Web (WWW), each page of the website needs to have an 'address' or uniform resource locator (URL for short). This is given by the domain name.

Web designers include a list of alternative fonts in the style sheet of a web page. If a computer can't find the font that the designer used for the website, the browser will display the text using a default font that is included with the operating system. There are font services on the World Wide Web which can be used. This means that designers don't have to rely on a viewer's computer system having the same font as they have used for their design. They can use a code that tells the browser to get the font from the WWW instead of the computer's operating system.

Why do web designers often use common fonts?
Some monitors can't display some of the fancy fonts
The more complicated fonts mean a page loads slower
