On HTML Tags and CodesSo many tags… I’m fully puzzled! On occasion you may find tags that you don't know their meaning when translating a file. You don’t know such tags shall be kept or removed and whether you should leave a space between the tag and the prior and following character, especially when the target language is simplified/traditional Chinese. Due to different syntax and expression conventions between the source language and target language, you may have to change the order of the source text for smooth and natural expression in the target language. In such cases, you may don’t know how to move the tags. If you happen to have these problems, I hope this blog is useful for you. General Information
- HTML tags are tag names surrounded by angle brackets <xxx>.
- HTML tags generally come in pairs (an opening tag and closing tag), such as <b> and </b>. In case one tag is missing, an error will occur and the tag pair will fail to work correctly.
- The text to be defined by the tags is written between the pair.
|<b></b>||The text between these tags will be bold-faced|
