Ok so as alot of you guys know i’m working on the sites layout and on some designs to make the place look snazzy, But why the hell are there so many formats for everything? On the layout part you got php, css, xml, like 4 kinds of html, java script which is in a realm of its own and others i’m still wandering up on. As far as designs go there’s to many to count, to begin with (and these are just the ones i’m trying to seclude myself to) jpg, png & bmp. Again that’s nothing compared to the vast amount of options i have when choosing. could I be picking ones that are less significant? Could I be loosing quality over my lack of knowledge of these formats?
Please give me your thoughts on this, I would be grateful for any feedback.
