HTML Section - Two articles about content categories


(Sphinx Knight) #1

Hello :slight_smile:

In the HTML section there is a recently created article about “Kinds of HTML content” [1]. However, most of the existing links regarding this concept point to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/HTML/Content_categories [2]

Should those be merged (with attention to the “content categories” links used in almost every HTML article pages)? Is there another angle one might want to cover in this article ([1]) which couldn’t be adressed in [2]?

Thanks for your feedback :slight_smile:
Respectfully,
Julien

Yeah, those should be merged. I looked and looked and couldn’t find anything about content categories for some reason, which is weird since there it is. So I wrote a new page about it. Do you want to merge them or shall I? For all I know, mine can just be removed outright, although I like to think there’s stuff in there worth saving. But I haven’t read this other page yet. I’m looking it over now.

I will say that I think some of my text and layout is a little clearer, but it’s possible that’s bias.

Thanks :slight_smile: during the week I’ll do the merging by transfering the content from the new article to the “old” one while conserving the headings/anchors that are used.
Best of both worlds, I’d say.

@sheppy I’ll let you know when this will be done so that we can remove the article without any content loss

Thanks! I appreciate it. I’m still confused as to how I could have missed finding that existing page when I spent so much time looking for it…

This has been done, there shouldn’t be much left to transfer to the pre-existing page.
I think we can delete/redirect “Kinds_of_HTML_content”, let me know what you prefer :slight_smile:
