Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Here’s what you html code will look like!

Basic block level elements

This is a normal paragraph (p element). To add some length to it, let us mention that this page was primarily written for testing the effect of user style sheets. You can use it for various other purposes as well, like just checking how your browser displays various HTML elements by default. It can also be useful when testing conversions from HTML format to other formats, since some elements can go wrong then.

This is another paragraph. I think it needs to be added that the set of elements tested is not exhaustive in any sense. I have selected those elements for which it can make sense to write user style sheet rules, in my opionion.

This is a div element. Authors may use such elements instead of paragraph markup for various reasons. (End of div.)

This is a block quotation containing a single paragraph. Well, not quite, since this is not really quoted text, but I hope you understand the point. After all, this page does not use HTML markup very normally anyway.

The following contains address information about the author, in an address element.

Jukka Korpela, jkorpela@cs.tut.fi
Päivänsäteenkuja 4 A, Espoo, Finland

Lists

This is a paragraph before an unnumbered list (ul). Note that the spacing between a paragraph and a list before or after that is hard to tune in a user style sheet. You can’t guess which paragraphs are logically related to a list, e.g. as a “list header”.

  • One.
  • Two.
  • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer. Note that for short items lists look better if they are compactly presented, whereas for long items, it would be better to have more vertical spacing between items.
  • Four. This is the last item in this list. Let us terminate the list now without making any more fuss about it.

The following is a menu list:

  • One.
  • Two.
  • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer so that it will probably wrap to the next line in rendering.
  • The following is a dir list:

    • One.
    • Two.
    • Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer so that it will probably wrap to the next line in rendering.

    This is a paragraph before a numbered list (ol). Note that the spacing between a paragraph and a list before or after that is hard to tune in a user style sheet. You can’t guess which paragraphs are logically related to a list, e.g. as a “list header”.

    1. One.
    2. Two.
    3. Three. Well, probably this list item should be longer. Note that if items are short, lists look better if they are compactly presented, whereas for long items, it would be better to have more vertical spacing between items.
    4. Four. This is the last item in this list. Let us terminate the list now without making any more fuss about it.

    This is a paragraph before a definition list (dl). In principle, such a list should consist of terms and associated definitions. But many authors use dl elements for fancy “layout” things. Usually the effect is not too bad, if you design user style sheet rules for dl which are suitable for real definition lists.

    term
    a word or other expression taken into specific use in a well-defined meaning, which is often defined rather rigorously, even formally, and may differ quite a lot from an everyday meaning

    Text-level markup

    • CSS(an abbreviation; abbrmarkup used)
    • radar(an acronym; acronymmarkup used)
    • bolded(bmarkup used – just bolding with unspecified semantics)
    • big thing(bigmarkup used)
    • large size(font size=6markup used)
    • Courier font(font face=Couriermarkup used)
    • red text(font color=redmarkup used)
    • Origin of Species(a book title; citemarkup used)
    • a[i] = b[i] + c[i);(computer code; codemarkup used)
    • here we have some deletedtext (delmarkup used)
    • an octetis an entity consisting of eight bits (dfnmarkup used for the term being defined)
    • this is verysimple (emmarkup used for emphasizing a word)
    • Homo sapiens(should appear in italics; imarkup used)
    • here we have some insertedtext (insmarkup used)
    • type yeswhen prompted for an answer (kbdmarkup used for text indicating keyboard input)
    • Hello!(qmarkup used for quotation)
    • He said: She said Hello!(a quotation inside a quotation)
    • you may get the message Core dumpedat times (sampmarkup used for sample output)
    • this is not that important(smallmarkup used)
    • overstruck(strikemarkup used; note: sis a nonstandard synonym for strike)
    • this is highlighted text(strongmarkup used)
    • In order to test how subscripts and superscripts (suband supmarkup) work inside running text, we need some dummy text around constructs like x1and H2O (where subscripts occur). So here is some fill so that you will (hopefully) see whether and how badly the subscripts and superscripts mess up vertical spacing between lines. Now superscripts: Mlle, 1st, and then some mathematical notations: ex, sin2 x, and some nested superscripts (exponents) too: ex2and f(x)g(x)a+b+c(where 2 and a+b+c should appear as exponents of exponents).
    • text in monospace font(ttmarkup used)
    • underlinedtext (umarkup used)
    • the command cat filename displays the file specified by the filename(varmarkup used to indicate a word as a variable).

    Some of the elements tested above are typically displayed in a monospace font, often using the samepresentation for all of them. This tests whether that is the case on your browser:

    • This is sample text inside code markup
    • This is sample text inside kbd markup
    • This is sample text inside samp markup
    • This is sample text inside tt markup

    Links

    This is a text paragraph that contains some inline links. Generally, inline links (as opposite to e.g. links lists) are problematic from the usabilityperspective, but they may have use as “incidental”, less relevant links. See the document Links Want To Be Links.

    Forms

    This is a form containing various fields (with some initial values (defaults) set, so that you can see how input text looks like without actually typing it):

    The following two radio buttons are inside a fieldsetelement with a legend:
    Legend
    Check those that apply

     

     

    Tables

    The following table has a caption. The first row and the first column contain table header cells (thelements) only; other cells are data cells (tdelements), with align="right"attributes:

    Sample table: Areas of the Nordic countries, in sq km
    Country Total area Land area
    Denmark 43,070 42,370
    Finland 337,030 305,470
    Iceland 103,000 100,250
    Norway 324,220 307,860
    Sweden 449,964 410,928

    Character test

    The following table has some sample characters with annotations. If the browser’s default font does not contain all of them, they may get displayed using backup fonts. This may cause stylistic differences, but it should not prevent the characters from being displayed at all.

    Char. Explanation Notes
    ê e with circumflex Latin 1 character, should be ok
    em dash Windows Latin 1 character, should be ok, too
    Ā A with macron (line above) Latin Extended-A character, not present in all fonts
    Ω capital omega A Greek letter
    minus sign Unicode minus
    diameter sign relatively rare in fonts
