I’ve been recommending people to W3Schools for a while. I’m not linking to it here, but if you search for any HTML element, it’s the first thing that comes up. Turns out, using that site as a reference is a bad idea.
The best of which, after looking for a while, seems to be the Mozilla Developer Doc Center. After browsing for a bit, I was really impressed with their clarity and detail, and the site’s easy on the eyes.
While the w3fools site isn’t without criticism itself, its larger point about how it’s problematic to rely on a single, non-transparent resource for accurate information rings true. It’s time to move on.
So today starts a new habit of adding “mdc” to my searches when I need a quick answer to something HTML- or CSS-related.
