Talk:HTML forms - the basics
-- UPDATE: August 18th 2011 - fairly substantial update done, as I felt the original was a bit narrow in scope. I've added quite a lot of stuff, for example radio buttons, checkboxes, and select/option
-- THERE IS A LOT OF NEW HTML5 FORM STUFF TO ADD, OBVIOUSLY - I THINK THAT IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE, BECAUSE SUPPORT FOR HTML5 FORM STUFF IS PATCHY ACROSS BROWSERS RIGHT NOW, WE SHOULD DO SMALL UPDATES ON THE EXISTING ARTICLE, THEN ADD ONE OR MORE SEPARATE ARTICLES TO COVER THE NEW HTML5 FORM ELEMENTS AND NEW ATTRIBUTES, AND THEN PERHAPS SEPARATE COVERAGE OF VALIDATION

She taught herself HTML in 1996 when a computer snob said that an artist could not learn to code and has been fully in love with all things web design ever since.
Ms. Jen is the owner and founder of Black Phoebe Designs, a web & mobile design firm. Ms. Jen has has a Masters degree in Computer Science and Multimedia Systems from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and taught web design at an LA area university from 2001–2005.
