Sample Page – Presentation Techniques

This page presents examples of different techniques for presenting and highlighting information on a web page.

Here are 12 examples:
  1. Table.  This enables the author to arrange data – text, images, links, forms, form fields, other tables, etc. – into rows and columns.
  2. Fancy List.  This enables the author to present a list of items and use icons instead of numbers or plain bullets to make the list look more interesting.
  3. Highlight.  This enables the author to highlight a piece of text as if a highlighter pen had been used.
  4. Note.  This enables the author to present a piece of text as a note.
  5. Box.  This enables the author to highlight an item on a page within a box.
  6. Button.  This enables the author to insert a button within a page.
  7. Service.  This enables the author to display service information, e.g. an address, a phone number or an email address.
  8. Map.  This enables the author to display a google map within a page based on a street address.
  9. Frame.  This enables the author to display an image within a picture frame.
  10. Gallery.  This enables the author to display a fixed set of images in the form of a grid.  Each image within the gallery can have a hotlink associated with it.
  11. Carousel.  This enables the author to display a set of images in the form of a continuously rotating slideshow.  Each image within the carousel can have a hotlink associated with it.
  12. Slider.  This enables the author to display a set of images in the form of a slideshow.  Each image within the slideshow can have a hotlink associated with it.

Carousels and a Sliders are very similar.  The major difference between a slider and a carousel is that a carousel never ends.  When you scroll to the end it starts again, just like a real carousel.
