Simple HTML5 Website Template

HTML5 is the latest version of HTML. It focuses on making programming much more straightforward and semantic. Semantics are the practice of making code readable to both humans and computers, and generally represents a best-practice when it comes to web design and search engine optimization. In HTML5, the Doctype and code structure for the website are very simple. Check out the beginning of this simple HTML5 website template:

<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″/>
<title>SkyPoint Studios Web Design Billings MT</title><style>
.selector {
-moz-border-radius: .75em;
-webkit-border-radius: .75em;
width: 1.4em;
height: 1.4em;
text-align: center;
display: inline-block;
line-height: 1.4em;
font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
font-weight: bold;
color: white;
background-color: gray;
cursor: pointer;
.selector :before {
content: “2715”;
/* content: “0D7″; */
.delete:hover {
background-color: red;

<div class=”delete”></div>


That is all there is to it! This site has inline CSS, but this can be moved to an external stylesheet. If you save this file as .html, you can launch it in your browser and see the website.

Mind you that this is a very basic website template, and would need a lot of work to make it into a functioning website. If you want to get an easier to operate and maintain site, check out this article on Which is the Best Platform to Build My Website on?

      Hi Andre, I am aware of such products, however they are like playing with fire because when/if Google search catches on to the regurgitated content, they may penalize your site, which may not be recoverable from.
