Here are a few terms that will help you…
If you are new to the world of being a webmaster, then you can be sure that you are bound to be confronted by many terms that will appear to be one big mystery to you.

But, do not be scared or intimidated by any of these terms because they are not at all as complex as they appear to be. Over a period of time, even you will become very familiar with these terms, of that you can be fully confident. 

Let Us Look At Some Of The Most Important Terms

W3C: This means “The World Wide Web Consortium”. This is an international community that has the responsibility of developing Web Standards.  They also have a free service and you can test your blog or website by using this service. In this way you will get to know if your blog or website is compliant with the standards of W3C. This is very good from the point of view of SEO.

ASCII: This is the "American Standard Code for Information Interchange". It was designed way back in the 1960s for the purpose of having a uniform set of characters that could be used for both PCs as well as hardware devices. 

This ASCII system involves a 7-bit character set that consists of 128 characters that are inclusive of the following: Letters from the English alphabet in lower case and upper case, numbers from 0-9 and certain special characters. The Internet, the latest PCs and HTML, all make use of characters that are based on ASCII.

ISO-8859-1: Most browsers that are in use today, will have this as their default character. ISO-8859-1 is the first set of characters that are contained in the original ASCII character code which includes the following: English alphabets in lower case as well as uppercase, numbers from 0-9 and certain special characters. The characters from 160 to 255 and certain other special characters that are contained in ISO-8859-1, are the ones that are made use of in countries in Western Europe. To symbolize characters that cannot be entered by using a keyboard or certain reserved characters, certain entities are made use of.

HTML: This is a short form that is used for “Hypertext Markup Language”. A text in html or text in html “coding” is referred to by most people, by the simple term HTML. Frankly though, HTML is not really an actual coding language. Fact is, HTML is just the language that is used to inform the browsers as to how they should render the Markup of text, when any page is loaded.

The Markup codes that are most frequently used, can be seen in the editing panel of WordPress.  When switching to text in the editing panel of WP, you will be able to see very clearly that the markup will be automatically added by WP. Thus, you will very easily be able to add or edit in the box in the editing panel of WordPress.

The difference between XHTML, XML and HTML

Many people get confused between these three, so here are the differences…

• Parsing requirements are made use of by XML and XHTMl. Whereas HTML will make use of its own and these would be mainly dependent on the way that the browsers are handling HTML.

• In HTML, no errors are fatal and also, there is no well formedness constraint. But XHTML is well-formedness and the errors are fatal.

• XML is case-sensitive and HTML is not case-sensitive and also, Attribute minimization is allowed. XHTML Names are case sensitive and Attribute minimization is not allowed.

• XML describes information and HTML displays information

• HTML defines data and XML describes data

CSS: “Cascading Style Sheet” is what this stands for. This means that the sheet or sheets cascade. Meaning that the style sheet that has the highest priority, will be in control of the display of content. As a result of this, you get the maximum amount of flexibility in deciding the looks of your blog or website, as well as the looks of the individual pages on your blog or website. Based on the page, there are some blogs and websites that have a range of style sheets. To give you an output in the window of your browser, the browser first has to know how to style the pages of the blog or website. And to know this, the browser will look at the CSS style sheets.

Many Benefits Of CSS

For any webmaster, probably the most exciting invention of all time, is CSS. This is because with the aid of CSS, it is now possible to design the most beautiful and the most diverse blogs and websites – the kind of which could only be dreamt of at one time.

It is true that there are numerous advantages of CSS, but the most visible one is that of clean html markup. This was once very tough to edit or overview as it incorporated all the styling. But this is no longer the case as CSS style sheets now provide all the styling. When the browser renders a page, both HTML as well as CSS comes together.
The styling of some pages and posts of WP are still carried out in HTML, on a day to day usage. But there really is no problem associated with this. However, the thumb rule is that as far as possible, the markup and the style must be separated.

Your Wordpress theme comes equipped with a style sheet and you can see this on –the arrow marked in the following picture. BUT, if you are not aware of what you are doing, make it a point to ensure that you do not touch this. If you touch it, not aware of what you should do, you may end up damaging the design of your blog or website.

PHP: This means “Hypertext Preprocessor” and it really is the main reason behind all the magic that lies with WordPress.  

PHP is actually an open source scripting language that is very widely used. PHP is a standard installation that is available on cPanel hosting accounts. The server executes the PHP scripts. 

PHP is an open source language that is flexible, scalable and very robust. It can be used to build very dynamic websites and that too, very easily. Plus, it also helps in enabling you to control your blog or website very easily.

As PHP has been in use since quite a long period of time now, it works well on both Windows as well as Linux and there are many web servers that have the support needed for it.

Also, by making use of PHP, you are provided with total security against all kinds of attacks that could be launched against your blog or website.

One of the big advantages of using PHP is that the cost involved with using and developing a blog or website that is PHP based, is extremely low. 

Very few system resources are used with PHP, this means that this is much faster than the other types of languages that are used for scripting. 

PHP also integrates with databases such as MySql which is one of the backend databases that is most preferred.

Open source projects are written in PHP and these include the likes of: forums, shopping carts, CRM, photo gallery, dating, CMS, blogs, database interface, etc.
Little wonder then that PHP is said to be the magic behind Wordpress.

In your process of learning how to make money online easily, the above terms will prove to be very useful to you… of this you can be 100% sure!
