Getting Tired of latex to html? 10 Sources of Inspiration That’ll Rekindle Your Love
- January 29, 2022
If you’re like some of my blog readers, you think that latex and html are the same thing. They most certainly are not. So, if you’re a web designer or developer, you’ve probably seen this all over the place. Well, I have. It’s kind of shocking to me that there are even people who know these terms. My guess is that it’s because many of us have never heard of them.
People who know HTML know what a syntax for html is, and people who know latex are aware of the difference between the two. But people who actually have to code latex and html have a hard time not confusing them. It really is as simple as this: latex is the language you use to code a webpage, and html is the language you use to create an application.
You may also notice that latex is mostly used to create a webpage, and HTML is mostly used to create an application. To me, that means that the most useful part of latex is the “make something out of nothing” thing. The easiest way to do that is to write a function, and then call that function to create a webpage in HTML. Using this approach, you can make a webpage that looks like a webpage and then make it into an application.
This is a great idea and makes a lot of sense. You can quickly make a webpage that looks like a webpage and then use that to create an application, and that application is called latex.
The more I use latex, the more I realize that with it you can’t really make HTML out of nothing. It’s just a function that returns something that can be used in html. But with latex you can apply more advanced functions to the result, so it’s a lot easier to create complex HTML pages than it was with other programs.
I hope you learned about this new ‘tool’ while listening to this podcast. I love how latex makes it so much easier to create complex HTML pages.
With latex you can create HTML with any number of tags, just by changing the tags in the source code and applying commands to the result. The thing about latex is that once you’ve written a page with a bunch of tags, you can apply all the tags you want as easily as you can apply a single command to an array.
With latex you can also do all sorts of cool things like put images into an HTML page, or embed code from another website, or even include a link and not have to type it out by hand.
It’s all very well to use the tag syntax to create HTML. But the more important thing from a formatting perspective is the fact that you can use the tag syntax to change the layout of the page, by using the < and > commands. In fact, the < and > commands are so powerful that you can actually use them to create very complicated layouts, too. You can use the template file to create a page that will appear in all sorts of different browsers, for example.
