To use a table summary tag it should be inserted in your table code before the table caption tag. It
should look something like this:
summary=”This table provides information about average 12
year old girls: average height, weight, and
percentage with brown eyes.”>
<CAPTION><EM>Characteristics of Average Girls</EM></CAPTION>
<TR><TH rowspan=”2”><TH colspan=”2”>Average
Acronym and abbreviation tags
One last tag that you should consider using on you web pages is the
viation) tag. These tags simply tell a web crawler or text reader that an acronym or abbreviation is
being used, and what the full text for that acronym or abbreviation is.
The advantage to having your abbreviations and acronyms included in HTML tags is that if those
words happen to be keywords for your page, the full text can be read by the crawler, rather than
just the letters in the abbreviation or acronym.
When you’re using the acronym tags in your HTML this is how they should look:
<acronym title=”Search Engine Optimization”>SEO</acronym>
And abbreviation tags should look like this:
<abbr title=”United States of America”>USA</abbr>
These two tags, although named differently, do exactly the same thing. Thus, many web designers
have gone to using the abbreviation tag rather than the acronym tag. No matter which you choose
to use, it at least offers an additional way for you to include your keywords on your page if they
happen to have an associated abbreviation or acronym.
A virtual include is a tag that allows you to use information just once if it’
s repeated often on the web
site. For example, if you have a navigation bar on the left side of your first page that will appear
exactly the same way on every other page, you can use a virtual include to repeat that navigation bar
without the need to code the bar repeatedly throughout your site.
