Chapter 7: Laying Out the Home Page > Laying Out the Framework

Laying Out the Framework

Okay. Enough talk. It's time to get your hands dirty. In the following exercises you'll create a quick and easy home page, complete with a banner (often called a header), an interactive sidebar menu, and a footer containing easy-to-execute e-mail and phone-number links.

This approach is quick and easy, and the page you create with it will work on a wide variety of mobile devices. I'm aware that many of the concepts introduced might be new to you. With that in mind, I discuss most of them briefly. But keep in mind that the purpose of this chapter is to get your feet wet — to design a workable mobile-friendly page. This is a starting place. The next few chapters take a closer look at many of the tags and techniques used here, and, as you learn to create more sophisticated pages and mobile web applications, I'll go over them in greater detail.
