YESTERDAY I DREAMT OF HTML

Yesterday I dreamt of HTML.

Who is this HTML?

Why her and not anyone else?

Hyper Text Markup Language but she insists people call her HTML. She’s as good as an angel without wings but with tags instead. The simplicity of her tags and the elegance of her syntax makes the internet go crazy over her. Through HTML, the look and appearance of images, links, headings, text, page layout and just about every element of a web page can be formatted.

One does not simply script line by line but like a poet’s endless rhyme you pour your heart out with each and every tag and when you finally write the </html> tag you end up finding this overwhelming internal satisfaction that you knew not existed. At that same moment, fear grips you. The fear of losing this wonderful feeling and this makes you want to do it again and again. Hence being trapped in an infinite loop of designing websites with the promise of this internal sensation called happiness at the end of every page.

If HTML is so special then why doesn’t everyone know of her? Why isn’t her name on billboards, TV commercials or in website ads? Why?

You as a web designer who’s used HTML before why not confess your love you have for language? Why not call a group of campus students to go and spread the knowledge of HTML in high schools? Aha! Why not call the group Silicon Blaze? Why not tell a friend or two or ten maybe about this wonderful organization? Why not join the bandwagon yourself!?

Thank you Silicon Blaze for spreading your love for HTML. She is truly grateful for lighting up the Silicon Savanah with the knowledge of her.
