Html Hunting

I am trying to think about how to describe physical reality with nested html tags that define documents. Each made of different parts or “documents” each divided by a <div>tag. When looking at the yard as a whole it would not be unreasonable to consider the two sections of green grass in the following picture as separate paragraphs. Defined by <p> tags and described visually via <span> and <style> tags within each <p> tag .

Let’s look at this gaggle of geese down here in a very basic way. The gaggle I am considering it’s own element  included in the yard document

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Gaggle</title>
 </head>
<body>
<div><span style=”color:greyish”>Momma Goose</div>
<div>Poppa Goose</span></div>
<div><span style=color:”yellow”>Gosling</span></div>

Gaggle of geese

Each goose is different . To give them their own appearance without affecting the overall appearance of the gaggle they each get tags like this

<div><span style=”height:1ft”>Momma Goose</span>

Of course this gets complicated to infinity if we tried to build a goose in this fashion because the styling of ever more basic elements is beyond reason in this application.

Let’s look back at the gosling document to further describe the goslings as part of the gaggle. There are many goslings in our gaggle so they are represented within our gaggle document as an unordered list.

<div>Gaggle

<ul><span style=”color:yellow”>

<li>Gosling</li>

<li>Gosling</li>

<li>Gosling</li>

<li>Gosling</li>

<li>Gosling</li>

</span></ul></div>

That’s enough goose chasing. Lets go inside for awhile.

Writing html by hand

I know writing by hand is a very powerful mental exercise.
I would love to spend more time doing it.

I needed 4 try’s to produce a half legible correct html document with a pen and it was downright painful. So difficult mainly because of my severely deprecated handwriting. I could certainly benefit from some polishing of my handwriting. This is a perfect subject for me to practice on.
