The amazing and very rapid growth and development of internet has given rise to so many new disciplines. Web designing is a widespread and important discipline, which focuses on the designing, creation, enhancing and managing websites. As far as the basics or rudimentary terms are considered, web designing is not a much-complicated process. What you actually need to focus on is that the building block of a website is a web page. Therefore, your concentration while dealing with the basics of web designing should be upon the methods to create a web page and its key features.

A web page is not, commonly, an unseen thing. Almost anyone who is familiar with or constantly uses the internet is necessarily acquainted of what a web page is. It is nothing but simply, and straightforward, the page, which your browser interprets and displays as text and images or even sounds and videos.

The elements in building a webpage can be organized, most, into three categories; the elements that are needed to structure a webpage, the elements that are needed to decorate or stylize a webpage and finally the elements that are needed to declare the behaviors of different parts or the entire web page.

As basic knowledge in relation to web designing, you must be familiar with the terms HTML, CSS and JavaScript. They are some of the tools, although the most basic ones, which respectively belong to the three basic elements required in building a web page.

HTML stands for Hyper Text Mark-up Language. It is a language, which can be used to structure a webpage. By use of it, you can define different fundamental objects of a webpage. You can define the sizes of the objects, their organization and their order and placement, which are the measures of how or where an object stays with respect to another one. For an instance, imagine of a simple table and an image as an object. Now consider that where you can place the image relative to the table. Suppose that you prefer the image to be placed inside the first cell of the table, which you can do using that HTML and therefore we can conclude that the table is a container of the image or the image is inside with respect to the table and after all, this is all we call structuring a webpage.

Secondly, the CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is another yet a simpler language that is used merely to decorate a webpage. You can use CSS to set sizes, positions, colors and other attributes of an element of webpage or the webpage itself.

Lastly, the JavaScript is more or less like a serious programming language. It is a very necessary part of a page. It inspires interactivity into a webpage, which is the utmost need of modern web designing. You have to practice a little more to command it. The purposes for its usage fall in a wide range. For example, you can use this language to handle a specific event; for example, when a button is clicked, you can use JavaScript to generate a message in response. You can also employ it to manipulate the properties of elements on a webpage.
