What I Hated the Least Today 204/365: On (C)lick

On lick
On lick

I’ve been learning HTML on and off for the last half a year. I’ve now thoroughly covered the basic tutorial at W3Schools, but there’s more. There’s always more. My original idea(l) of encompassing all of HTML, as in moving all there is to know about it in my head, proved to be rather naive.

I’m also finding that there are overlaps in the HTML tutorial with other coding / programming / scripting languages. There are always overlaps, of course. For now I’m skipping anything that involves functions, but I am trying some very primitive scripts. If I knew a word meaning more primitive than primitive, I’d use it now to describe my attempts.

I’m a rather good typist and I rarely make typos, but I made one that amused me when I was trying to write a more primitive than primitive button. I told the button what to do on lick. Well, the canonical idea is to tell the button what to do on click. The lick button didn’t work, and I didn’t try licking it to see if that would work out.
