37 HTML FAQs answered

The next time you need to point somebody to a place where they can find answers to the most frequently asked questions about HTML, send them to Tommy Olsson's Bulletproof HTML: 37 Steps to Perfect Markup. It is a long, long article, but it is packed with useful information. Most importantly, the information is correct as far as I can tell.

In the article, Tommy answers questions ranging from "What is HTML?" and "Must I have an alt attribute for every image?" to "What does character encoding (charset) mean?" and "What is a BOM?". There is probably something in there for everybody.

This reminds me of a subject that surfaces every now and then: standards aware Web professionals need to flood the web with correct information to push the old tag soup FAQs and how-tos way down the SERPs.
