Tesserae updates as frequently as I write for it. In the interests of keeping you on top of what's happening and documenting the site going forward, here's the gist of things.
November 13, 2020 Assuming Anyone Wants to Read it...
- New page on increasing the readability of a whole bunch of text over browser default styling. This is likely to be Tesserae's last update for 2020, so I wanted to try something a bit different.
October 6, 2020 Tabled For Now
- New page on tables, used to format data in a tabular manner. This page also features Tesserae's first homegrown SVGs, handwritten by me! They're not, like, amazing or anything, but still useful to have.
August 31, 2020 Web TV
- Two new pages, one on HTML5 audio and video and a companion page on audio and video formats in the Extras section. This was meant to be one page, but it turned out to be too much.
July 17, 2020 Damn, It Really is Simple!
- Tesserae now has an RSS feed. Feel free to subscribe to it in your feed reader of choice. I suppose a page on RSS in the Extras section at some point wouldn't be amiss, given how surprisingly easy these are to write.
July 11, 2020 I'll Need to See Some ID
- New page on IDs and classes, ways to name your elements for easier styling and scripting.
July 1, 2020 Quirky Nature
- New page on document type declarations, or doctypes, and how they can affect the rendering of your page.
May 30, 2020 Dial 411
- New page on directory indexes, the lists of files you get when you visit a folder in a web browser, and how
index.htmlpages make for cleaner URLs.
May 6, 2020 Asking for References
- Added to and reorganized the References page.
April 25, 2020 Blocks and Quotes
- New page on advanced text formatting such as blockquotes, comments, and description lists.
March 25, 2020 Back for More
- Tesserae relaunches with a new, sharper, more modern design using mini.css.
- The beginner HTML tutorials have been rewritten from the ground up to be far clearer and feature more visuals.
- A new section, "Before You Begin", debuts, featuring definitions, tool recommendations, and easing newcomers into the world of sitebuilding.
- As of now, the two CSS and Advanced HTML sections are merely placeholders. Content will be readded as it's rewritten.
