Spruce Knob Seneca Rocks Telephone offers a couple of approaches to website design. One, the SKSRT Website Builder, is a user-friendly website-building program provided for those who wish structure and edit their own sites without having to learn the code behind it. Site Builder is found at the SKRST Supersite. The other approach is custom website design, with the page code written by SKSRT using the versatility of combining Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) with XHTML coding. The SKSRT website is constructed using CSS and XHTML. More about these below.
The SKSRT Website Builder is accessed through the SKSRT Supersite. It is one of the services which may be selected either by itself or in combination with other components at the site. Web hosting is included as a component of Website Builder, as are unlimited email accounts. The Supersite may be visited by clicking on this URL: http://domains.spruceknob.net. The Website Builder can accommodate up to 50 webpages, with up to 5 Gb web space.
Some of the features and options available include:
Additions and alterations to pages are done by means of a Microsoft-type What-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) page editor. Pages may be added to, corrected, and reviewed before they are published to the Web. Changes to your website may be made at any time by entering the Supersite through your customer account. More detailed information may be found at the Supersite knowledgebase.
Most websites are constructed using a program which relies on some type of WYSIWYG page editor. This makes sites easier to build as little knowledge of the underlying code is required by the designer in order to produce good results. (To see the code underlying a web page, click on View-->Page Source.) However, this code is difficult to edit since content (what you read on the screen) is mixed up with presentation (what the content looks like on the screen).
CSS based design separates content from presentation. The advantages to this approach include:
