PSD to HTML slicing in 3 steps.

PSD slicing to HTML, xHTML or HTML5?

In case you outsource a PSD to HTML project to us, you will first be asked for the Doctype of your choice when uploading your PSD file. You can choose to have your PSD file converted to either HTML5, xHTML Strict or xHTML Transitional.

Strict or transitional xHTML

xHTML slicing consists out of traditional HTML4 structure combined with markup from XML. The main difference between xHTML Transitional and xHTML strict is the way you are bound to the proper use of syntax. With xHTML Strict you must for example strictly follow the closing tags or errors will emerge. If you would like to alter our conversion in a later stage, it is safer to choose for Transitional or HTML5.
The chosen doctype has no effect on the web browser, provided that you followed the rules regarding the chosen schema. Therefore, you cannot use HTML5 elements in your source code when you have an xHTML doctype. These elements are just not recognized.

HTML5 slicing

HTML5 slicing

HTML5 slicings are the most complete variant from which you can choose as most new techniques are directly implemented in the language. It can be seen as a combination of HTML and xHTML as it consists of functionalities of both.
HTML5 is further meant to ensure more structure within the text. For example, by adding <section> tags search engines can better read text which it consist. Furthermore, <nav> elements can be used to provide search engines that some sort of navigation is used for users to browse the website. All these HTML5 elements are used to tell the search engine how your website is structured and which parts are important. <header> and <footer> are herein important elements.

PSD to website or web shop with CMS

There is an increasing demand from website owners to manage their website themselves. This can be done by using a Content Management System (CMS). A CMS system lets users without technical knowledge manage the website in an easy manner.
Generally, we make use of free/open source software. This means that your website is integrated with Wordpress, Magento or Joomla.

We have chosen from Wordpress, Magento and Joomla not only because these CMS systems are free, but more importantly, because these systems have loads of functionalities. The average website can work just fine with them.
