HTML Attributes

From Elements to Attributes

Hey there! We've covered the basics of HTML elements in our previous session. Now, let's dive into the exciting world of HTML attributes, which enhance the functionality and appearance of our elements.

What are HTML Attributes?

Attributes are properties that provide additional information or modify the behavior of HTML elements. They are written inside the opening tag of an element with a name and a value, separated by an equals sign (ex: <p title="Hello World!">).

Types of HTML Attributes

There are various types of HTML attributes, each serving a specific purpose. Global attributes can be used with any element, while others are specific to certain elements.

Global Attributes

Global attributes are universal and can be applied to any HTML element (ex: id, class, style). They provide a way to uniquely identify elements and customize their appearance.

Event Attributes

Event attributes allow you to add interactivity to your web pages. They trigger specific actions in response to user interactions (ex: onclick, onmouseover). These attributes help make your pages more dynamic and engaging.

Input Attributes

Input attributes are essential for creating forms and collecting user input on web pages. They define the type of input field (ex: type), provide default values (ex: value), and specify input validation (ex: required).

List Attributes

List attributes help you create ordered and unordered lists on your web pages (ex: type, start). They provide control over the appearance and functionality of these lists.

Table Attributes

Table attributes let you create and customize tables on your web pages (ex: border, width). They allow you to define the layout, alignment, and appearance of your tables.

Frame Attributes

Frame attributes are used to create frames within a web page (ex: src, name). They allow you to divide the browser window into multiple sections, each displaying a different webpage.
