In Search Of The Holy Template

My quest began just a few days ago but
much territory has been covered in style,
color, font, feeds and widgets of what may
be considered a friendly, readable page.

Starting at the beginning, of course, with
an introduction to web programming.
When this appears to be a difficult task to
understand, go to a definitions page to
know, exactly, what it is you are doing
concerning a web page layout. Drowning
in file types' meanings and (dot,letter,letter)
dot nightmares, I borrowed a few free
template html's to try and grasp a sense
of reality of jargon that would hopefully
drop from finger to keyboard in a writing
frenzy and provide a view and usability
to meet my expectations. You would have
to be a witch to understand the kind of
"magic" involved to adjust their writing!

Upon my quest I have read about twenty
html page designs, read around a dozen xml
documents and found a seemingly endless
array of useful stuff -widgets, gidgets, gadgets,
games, clocks, videos, dynamic chalk boards,
RSS, CSS, loads of BS, little screen "pets"
and one killer rabbit.

I also found a "validator" for html
which proved a bit singled out for one
web page editor program that looked
nothing like the html in my current page.
It appears I need to go back to the start
and find a html (or, xml) walk through
and actually pay attention this time.
I probably would have it figured out
but the vast www provides so much for
an ADHD mind to be occupied with.

Until the language and page are mastered,
I will be practicing "not being seen".

Know what you mean buddy, took me a long time to figure out that there are different formats and some are not compatible to blogspot. Then of course, you also have to know how to unzip a file!:) Who would have ever thought you have to unzip something to get to the contents held within? But, I discovered a secret in the whole process of remodeling each of my three sites. Call and email the "tinker" ~ she is good. The way I look at it, why would I really want to learn all those codes and strings of letter that do not spell anything. How often am I going to use it? How crazy do I want to make myself trying to figure it out? How much time do I have to spend? Call the "tinker" is much easier. But, looking forward to your creation.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
