Anatomy of a Web page

Tech Computer Center logo

Here is one way of dividing up the contents of a typical Web page:

  1. At the top of the page comes its head. Every page should start with a clear and concise title. Some designers like to provide navigational links at the top of the page, also, somewhat like a menu bar. See `Designing the head of a Web page'.
  2. The body of the page delivers the main content of the chunk. There are several different ways of structuring page bodies; see `Choosing a chunk type'.
  3. After the body you should provide one or more choices of places to go next. See `Designing the end links of a Web page'.
  4. Every page should bear information about its author at the bottom. See `Designing the colophon section of a Web page'.
