data types


Data types are a way of configuring how a HTML element ( “HTML tag” ) should look or behave on a HTML document or a view in a Web Application. Data types define existing attributes associated with a HTML element. The “id” and “class” attribute doesn’t have predefined data types and is used by CSS stylesheets or for further enhancements through Javascript logic.


In HTML, the Data Types that are supported are used attributes values within an HTML element. They are used to describe

  1. Colors (basic ones are "red", "blue", etc…)
  2. Lengths
  3. Links and relationships
<!-- <element attribute="data type">...</element> -->
<a href="" target="_blank"  class="linkStyle" id="linkAnchorOrUniqueStyle" >HTML Element hyperlink</a>
