Be F L E X I B L E.
We now live in a world where our content needs to
work on a wide array of devices. It needs to be flexible.
What exactly is Flexible Content and why is
it important?
Flexible
Device agnostic. It doesn’t matter what device it’s being viewed on, it still
needs to be presentable!
Content
ALL pictures, text, links and multimedia that come together and provide your
web site with substance and value.
Importance
If the content appears to be broken, it’s unprofessional and makes the
user experience unpleasant and frustrating.
Tables are OUT, right?
Tables are OUT, right?
Yes, but not in ALL instances.
• Tables were designed for tabular data, or content that would be better
laid out for analysis in an excel spreadsheet. Example >
• Tables can be extremely rigid when using a pixel width to set parameters.
• Tables create a TON of markup.
• What’s the alternative to tables?
Mobile Ready Content Blocks!

Tables vs. Mobile Ready Content Block
(Divs)
Mobile Ready Content Block
1. Developed as an alternative to TABLES and to
accommodate the growing popularity of
Mobile/Hybrid web sites.
2. Utilizes a combination of HTML/CSS that is
predefined and available to everyone.
3. No markup!
4. Can reduce the total number of templates.

• Most of the HTML
formatting is still
usable.
• It beats writing
everything in the
WYSIWYG editor
(Logouts) .
• Notepad/Simple
Text will wipe it
clean of all
formatting.

Styling with Headers
Header Styling
Header Styling Options
Important to use headers since they have been predefined
to use your institutions style guide.

Normal = <p>
Header 1 = <h1>
Header 2 = <h2>
Header 3 = <h3>
Header 4 = <h4>
Header 5 = <h5>
The others you will probably never use.
Be Conservative with the <span> Tag
1. Sometimes necessary, but if overused they can junk
up the HTML.
2. By default, span tags overwrite the global styling of
the external CSS.
