More visual HTML jokes

Inspired by Neatorama’s “Visual HTML joke” that got digged recently.

If you have not yet seen it, it’s an

<i>

-tag on each side of the Tower of Pisa:
original photo italic tag

I decided to visualize a few HTML tags myself:

baseball base for base tag

Greek temple for colgroup tag

submarine for html sub tag
Modified from http://flickr.com/photos/maddiedigital/311161230/

Old table for table tag
Modified from http://flickr.com/photos/anabananasplit/337567708/

female body for html body tag
Modified from http://flickr.com/photos/idua_japan/258758222/

All photos are Creative Commons license that I found on Flickr via the creative commons search option. If you feel like contributing, we could start a complete HTML tag visualization encyclopedia. Dalager told me he will create a photo pool on Flickr.

    By the way, I better mention that the

    <i>

    tag is deprecated, so really somebody should come up with a photo for

    <em>

    in stead

    Oh, the pressure…

    Here goes:

  3. Tobias Says:

    Even thou the [i] is deprecated, it does seem most appropriate for that image. And I do believe that the leaning tower of Pisa predates HTML 4.0

    Dalager: I’ve uploaded the photos to the htmljokes Flickr group now.
    Tobias: I totally agree with you! Eventually, with the current delays in HTML 5, the leaning tower will probably fall before the final version is released :)

  6. Tobias Says:

    Oh the horror of text-align: justify!

  7. Thomas Baekdal Says:

    Funny! The colgroup is especially good.

    I modified some of your comments only to add images.

    Tobias: the text-align:justify is a killer with those long urls without spaces. You can use <a>-tags if you like

  14. Jesper Rønn-Jensen Says:

    Jakob “mentalized” Skjerning posted this photo of a truly <tt> tag:

    Can’t really decide which one of the <small> images I like the best.

  17. Extemp”F”oraneo » The Visual HTML Jokes: imágenes con un toque de html Says:

    […] Confieso que este post va dirigido a aquellos que conocen de alguna manera las etiquetas del html(Hyper Text Markup Language). La idea de The Visual HTML Jokes (algo así como Bromas visuales con HTML), proviene originalmente de Neatorama. Ahora Jesper Rønn-Jensen en justaddwater.dk ha agregado algunas de su cosecha y  Dalager ha creado un grupo a propósito en Flickr . Divertida ocurrencia que, no descarto, se transforme en una nueva categoría en el cibermundo. En el momento que escribo esta nota suman 44 fotos. La imagen que ilustra la nota me ha gustado mucho, aunque no es para reír sino sonreír. Vía Laughing Squid flickr , fotografía , HTML , humor , internet , Visual HTML Jokes […]
