I've been looking at different page sources on the net and I've noticed there are variations in the way the code is usually indented. I would like to know if there are standards to follow as to what's the right indenting technique/style to use or if this is more of a preference?
For example, in some pages, especially parts containing images and links inside ul and li tags, sometimes I see the code horribly piled up which makes it really hard to read. How can someone, even experienced web developers actually read that?
I've gotten used to always hand writing my html and it seems to me it looks sometimes kind of empty as I always try to separate things so that they are easy to read. But then when I randomly choose websites and view the code, often times the codes I see are much more condensed, some of them left-justified, some of them piled up, etc.
I don't have work experience in web development but I do like to develop websites, I'm simply trying to adopt good coding practices. I guess companies take that into consideration when hiring a developer ???
Any comments, suggestions or recommendations on good articles to read will be much appreciated.
