Naming Conventions

How do we name files? why is it important?

Best practices

  1. Web convention allows you to name the landing page of your website index.html. The browsers default to this page if you just send it to the directory and do not give it a specific document name.
  2. both .html or .htm are acceptable file extensions
  3. save html document to the appropriat directory befor you start building your links, this will prevent problems and confusion later
  4. lower case prefered
  5. no spaces
  6. no special charicters, brackets, commas, periods, question marks, poundsigns, or other such things
  7. underscores are acceptable _
  8. HumpNotationIsAcceptable
  9. descriptive names are better

Thing's to look out for.
