Decimal system (also known as Base 10 Transit Number System, sometimes referred to as Disallow) is the standard system for displaying int and non-integer numbers. This is an extension of the non-integer numbers of the Hindu-Arabic number system. [1] The method of displaying numbers in the decimal system is often called the decimal number. [2]

Decimal or decimal or wrong decimal number usually refers to the number of symbols in the decimal system, in which the decimal separator (for example, 10.00 or 3.14159) is. Sometimes these terms are used for every digit in the decimal system. The decimal place can refer to every digit after the decimal separator, eg. B. “3.14 is estimated at π to two decimal places”.

The numbers described in the decimal system are the decimal degrees, which is a / 10n form degree, where integer and n are non-integers.

After the decimal separator, the decimal system was expanded to an infinite number using infinite number sequence (decimal place representation) to represent any real number. In this context, sometimes the normal decimal place is called to finish the decimal. A repeat decimo is an endless knockout, in some places the string is repeated continuously (for example 5121244144144144 to … = 5.123144). [3] Infinite determination represents only a logical number if it has a repeating decimal or a limited number of non-zero digits.

Many ancient cultures use ten and their power to represent the number, probably because there are ten fingers on both hands and people begin to count with their fingers. Examples are Armenian numerals, Brahma, Greek numerals, Hebrew figures, Roman numerals and Chinese numerals. It was difficult to represent very large numbers in older output systems, and only the best mathematicians could increase or share a large number. These difficulties have been completely completed with the introduction of the Hindu-Arabic numerical system. This system has been expanded to represent several non-integer numbers called decimal or decimal numbers to create a decimal number system.

Generally it is believed that if M> 0, the first digit is not zero, but in some cases one or more left-handed values ​​can be useful. The value presented by the decimal number has not changed. For example 3.14 = 03.14 = 003.14. If BN = 0, it can be removed equally, and vice versa, the rear number can be added without mentioning the specified number. For example, 15 = 15.0 = 15.00 and 5.2 = 5.20 = 5.200 Occasionally, unnecessary zero is used to indicate the accuracy of the measurement. For example, 15.00 meters indicates that the measurement error is less than one centimeter, while 15 meters may mean that the length is approximately fifteen meters, and this error can be more than 10 centimeters.

Grids & Structure

We deploy grid-based layouts ‘behind the scenes’ in all our basic skins. The idea behind these layouts is to provide your website with a solid visual and structural balance from the word go.

These layout structures offer ample flexibility and enhance the visual experience for your visitors, and introduces an easy-to-follow consistency across your site, while allowing you to create and update both design and content in a well thought-out, standardised framework within the constraints of the browser.

Although it’s not always possible we do aim for a certain consistency when it comes to structuring a Tank site. We follow established naming conventions to enable logical hooks into the underlying structure of all our basic skins:

  • header
  • navigation
  • canvas
  • content
  • sidebar
  • footer

If you are familiar with CSS you can edit the properties of the underlying structure of your site easily.

Navigation & Architecture

The idea behind most navigation in a Tank site is that of context-sensitivity - which boils down to the fact that navigation will appear when and where is required. If you add a portfolio images will be thumb-nailed for you and be immediately navigable to larger views of the uploaded media. If you add a blog date archives, categories and RSS feeds will be present automagically. All you need to do is consider your content, and what you want to do with it.

Information architecture

Besides this approach the following options are available to further architect your information according to your requirements.

Global navigation

Content grouped into the global navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the header of a site and demarcates the most important information on your site. The good stuff goes here.

Utility navigation

Content grouped into the utility navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the footer of a site and demarcates the necessary or additional information on your site. Everything else goes here.

Hidden navigation

You can also set content to ‘hidden’ which means it’s only accessible if you either link to it or tell someone where to find it.

A blend between these three options enables you to build almost any site any way you want.

Text & Typography

We use a text-to-HTML conversion tool - a filter - that allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which is converted it to structurally valid HTML for rendering on the web.

In a nutshell it means you use certain characters as formatting commands and you place these characters amongst your text to create certain effects (bolding text) and functionality (linking text).

E.g. headings

You can easily apply the full range of headers (h2 to h6) as follows:

# big heading
## smaller heading
##### smallest heading

E.g. formatting text

Formatting text - bolding text, italicizing text, or even striking text is quite simple. Simply use the basic formatting rules you’ve just seen and surround your text with the appropriate characters.


We utilise and deploy percentage-based text-sizing, popular font-stacks & web-safe fonts across all our sites. This means that your site is legible and readable from the get-go, but still customisable according to your specifications and personal taste.

Images & Galleries

There are two ways of displaying images in your site: ‘inline’ with the rest of your content, or in sortable collections in a dedicated ‘photo section’ of their own.

Inline images

Images attached to content appear ‘inline’; in other words in the content you place them. The image below has been placed just below this paragraph and is sized automatically according to the width of the container it’s placed in.

That means images look great no matter where you put them. No need to ‘size down’ anything - in fact we recommend uploading your images large enough to cater for higher resolutions.

Inline galleries & slide-shows

If multiple images are attached to content it is possible to ‘string’ these images together into an inline gallery or slideshow. It couldn’t be simpler or easier.

Collections of images

Images can also be placed in order-able collections inside a photo section - a slightly easier way to manage large sets of images as all images are thumb-nailed and placed automatically according to the dimensions of the current skin.
