I’ve started FCC this week, and completed the Tribute page yesterday. I’ve been programming for 25+ years, but other than learning some basic HTML when it back in the 90’s, I’ve only be doing client desktop apps. So I’m using FCC to learn the web development side of the programming.
Here is my tribute page:
Since I have very little CSS experience, I focused on doing all the formatting in CSS instead of using Bootstrap.
For the text list part of the page, I know using a table probable would have been easier. But the Wiki page from where I scraped the data already had it in a table so I wanted to do something different.
I also know the page isn’t too responsive, so I’d specifically like suggestions on how to improve it that way. Using the hard coded Width for the Figure tag background isn’t a great way to do it since I’ve already seen the box size change drastically depending on the device display.
I’m curious if there’s an easy way to get the different colored box & caption around the photo, without using the new HTML5 Figure tag.
One question I had is about CSS in general. Is there a general rule about when the values should, or need to be in quotes or not? I was able to do what I wanted without using quotes, but the pieces of CSS I copied from online examples or tutorials frequently used quotes.
I think I remembered that any more, all HTML values need to be in quotes.
Thanks a lot for the help,
