Quick Link: Three Layers of the Web

Three Layers of the Web Kevin Yank has an article posted on Sitepoint entitled “Simply JavaScript: The Three Layers of the Web”.  What I love about it, is that he does a masterful job of outlining the separation of content from presentation from behaviour.  I was just talking about this the other day, how HTML, CSS and Javascript make up the 3 legged table of the web; each is required if you are trying to build something stable.

These days, everyone seems to understand separating presentation from markup, but I still see <a href=”#” onclick=“doSomething();”> all over the place.  Hopefully, as more and more people keep repeating the message, separating behaviour, the same way we separate presentation, will work its way into our collective folk-knowledge.

If you are a beginning webmaster, spend some serious time reading about these separations - you’ll be a better webmaster for it.
