web development notes

This is personal notes for personal and my friends only:
You can read them,but I suggest look to link,resources only

It contains  all information about HTML,CSS and JavaScript (and their framework).


HTML notes:

CSS notes:
JavaScript notes:

  • Javascript scope
    • "The second important feature is that functions provide scope. In JavaScript there’s no  curly braces local scope; in other words, blocks don’t create scope. There’s only function scope. Any variable defined with var inside of a function is a local variable, invisible outside the function. Saying that curly braces don’t provide local scope means that if you define a variable with var inside of an if condition or inside of a for or a while loop, that doesn’t mean the variable is local to that if or for. It’s only local to the wrapping function, and if there’s no wrapping function, it becomes a global variable. minimizing the number of globals is a good habit, so functions are indispensable when it comes to keeping the variable scope under control." (find resource!)

XPath is a language for finding information in an XML document.
XPath is used to navigate through elements and attributes in an XML document.


  • XPath, there are seven kinds of nodes:
  1. attribute,
  2. comment,
  3. document nodes
  4. element,
  5. namespace,
  6. processing-instruction, 
  7. text 
  • XML documents are trees of nodes.
  • Items are atomic values or nodes.
  • Atomic values are nodes with no children or parent.
  • Each element and attribute has one parent. Element nodes may have zero, one or more children.
  • Nodes that have the same parent.
  • Ancestors A node's parent, parent's parent, Descendants A node's children, children's children,
  • XPath uses path expressions to select nodes or node-sets in an XML document.
  • Predicates are used to find a specific node or a node that contains a specific value.
  • XPath wildcards can be used to select unknown XML elements.
  • By using the | operator in an XPath expression you can select several paths.
  • An axis defines a node-set relative to the current node.
  • A location path can be absolute or relative.An absolute location path starts with a slash ( / ) and a relative location path does not.
  • An XPath expression returns either a node-set, a string, a Boolean, or a number.
  • XQuery is used to querying XML data.
  • XSLT is the style sheet language for XML files.


  • Note: In IE 5,6,7,8,9 first node is[0], but according to W3C, it is [1]. To solve this problem in IE, set the SelectionLanguage to XPath.
  •  How to prevent uneven linespacing  when subscripts or superscripts are used  on web pages.

Misc. informations:
  • w3schools is quite famous website that provide web development learning content ,but there are many professionals who hats this page and they are even pages about it like http://www.w3fools.com .I am unable to jurge this,but it is worth to mention as it r
