365 Days of Real Estate & Tech - Day 9 -- HTML

  Hyper Text Markup Language or HTML has we all know it has been around since the early 1990s. There has been many revisions since then with the latest is HTML 5 coming around the corner. Apple, which does not support Adobe Flash on some of their devices like iPhones and iPad does support HTML 5 and see it as the replacement for Flash.

Hyper Text Markup Language

  Even if a user is not tech savvy it does has some benefits to us and our business to know the basic of HTML and how to manipulate it. Since the 1990s there were many programs that were suppose to convert what we type automatically to HTML such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft FrontPage and other sharewares. The problem was that the resulting HMTL was blotted with lot of unnecessary code. If you want a faster website and to be higher in the rankings of search engines, then it is very important to know some HTML and have very clean and organize html on your website.

  I am not going to talk too much about HTML on this blog because there are so much to learn even for the basics and there are some great books out that would do a better job of teaching the material. Regardless, there are some people who make great use of HTML like the person with the t-shirt below. Should you start learning HTML?

Song, no need to learn HTML, I think. Many sites help us generate HTML code based on simple basic WYSIWIG editors.

I have taken a little time to learn the basics for my site.  I would like to learn a little more, but then I feel like it's taking away productive real estate time.
