HTML

Hypertext Markup Language

I like to get tipsy and do HTML when it's sunny.

Cool HTML Elements

<cite>
For titles of works.
<details>
For sections of stuff you can show/hide. Added a <summary> to set the title. Use <details open> to make it start unfolded.
<dfn>
For specifying first instance of a term. Use with <abbr> or <acronym>.
<figure>
For images associated stuffs. Put a regular 'ol <img> in there and use <figcaption> for a caption.
<kbd>
For keyboard / button instructions.

Other Cool Things

download attribute
With <a href=“[link to file]” download> you can specify that a link is for downloading, rather than loading, by adding the download attribute.
This can also be followed by a =“[filename]” if you want it to be downloaded with a different filename that the one it has on your server.
alternate stylesheet
You can specify alternative appearances for you page, which in Firefox are accessed via View > Page Style (or Alt v y). You can also have a base sheet that is applied to all.

Content Security Policy

CSP is a way of verifying externally hosted assets on websites.

Pretty cool thing to get into the habit of use/doing.
