Moving on with basic ColdFusion topics, today we'll look into the different variable types available. We'll also talk about the different ways of controlling the flow of the page through the use of conditional blocks and loops.
We now make it to the pice-de-resistance. The next 2 or 3 posts should go over the basics of ColdFusion.
I know I'd promised that the next post would be about ColdFusion, but I guess I forgot to take a look at my list: what I want to talk about first is Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
In this last part for basic HTML, we'll be looking at generating a table. Tables, in HTML, are used to display data. It can be a report. It can be a list of people and their related information. It can be, well, a lot of things. It should not, however, be used to create the layout for your page. There are much better and more convenient ways to do that, which we'll see in a couple of sections.
Yesterday, I talked about what HTML is and what an HTML document looks like. In part two of this section we'll cover general HTML tags, what they represent and how they are used. Remember, these can be placed anywhere between the document's <body> tags.
A friend of mine is learning ColdFusion, so I said to myself "Hey! That would make a great subject for the blog!" As this person is pretty much starting from scratch, I thought it'd be a good idea to write up a series for beginners. I have no intention of reinventing the wheel here, just helping out a friend and sharing with the world.
