Typos, HTML Mistakes, and Your Website

What’s Up, Wordy?

I’ve noticed that some websites have mistakes in their text, but it doesn’t have to do with the person who wrote it. Many times, it seems that the webmaster or individual who copied the text onto the actual webpage is the one who made the wrong keystrokes.

Perhaps there are two or three spaces in between words or you have an incorrect HTML code for a symbol (i.e., the ampersand or a copyright character). Items such as these may not derive from the writer of the content, but they will still be flaws when read by your website’s visitors.

Here are some tips that I’ve come up with to help prevent typos and mistakes in HTML:

  • Brush up on your HTML knowledge and understand what each tag is capable of doing.
  • After you make changes to your webpage, save it and then refresh your website to view the updates. You’ll then be able to see exactly what has occurred and fix the errors.
  • Have someone else read over the webpage. After staring at the website for so long, you might not be able to catch mistakes. Fresh eyes and another point of view are very helpful.
