Style Guide

A quality style guide is a must for effective branding—esp. when working with teams—and can effectively save you time and money while providing brand consistency.

This style guide provides a blueprint of the this site’s styles—using the über-useful Markdown language—and a peek under-the-hood at what the semantic HTML output looks like.

Headline Styles, the H tags: <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6>

What semantic HTML headline tag code looks like:

<h1>Headline One</h1>
<h2>Headline Two</h2>
<h3>Headline Three</h3>
<h4>Headline Four</h4>
<h5>Headline Five</h5>
<h6>Headline Six</h6>

What semantic HTML headline tag code renders in the browser:

Heading One <h1>

HEADING TWO <h2>

Heading Three <h3>

Heading Four <h4>

Heading Five <h5>
Heading Six <h6>

BLOCKQUOTE & Cite <blockquote> ...<cite>

The blockquote is used to indicate the quotation of a large section of text from another source. It can be as long or as short as you’d like.

What <blockquote> HTML code looks like:

<blockquote>
 <q>Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.
  <cite>Leonardo Da Vinci</cite></q>   
</blockquote>

What a <blockquote> HTML tag renders to in the browser:

Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.
Leonardo Da Vinci

You can use the <q> tag for "Quote" or <p> tag for paragraph around the quote. Note that most browsers will add handy quote marks around the <q> tag by default—what one would call "native functionality."

Accordions

HTML5 Accordion: Native & Extremely Useful... Additional information can be included here, allowing those users that need this info to obtain it easily—while keeping the bulk of info neatly tucked away so users can easily scan several summaries (think of a summary as a headline for the accordion) and quickly find the one they want. Makes for a nicer User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) to boot! **Bonus Points:** * A progressive enhancement. Older browsers that don’t know the details HTML tag will simply not show the accordion functionality and the user sees all content, so no information is rendered inaccessible.

Native Accordion HTML Code

<details>
    <summary>Your Summary (Headline) here</summary>

IMAGE ALIGNMENT

Image


Right Aligned Image

Image
Images may be two-dimensional, such as a photograph, screen display, and as well as a three-dimensional, such as a statue or hologram. They may be captured by optical devices – such as cameras, mirrors, lenses, telescopes, microscopes, etc. and natural objects and phenomena, such as the human eye or water surfaces.


Left Aligned Image

Image
The word image is also used in the broader sense of any two-dimensional figure such as a map, a graph, a pie chart, or an abstract painting. In this wider sense, images can also be rendered manually, such as by drawing, painting, carving, rendered automatically by printing or computer graphics technology, or developed by a combination of methods.
