September 6th, 2010 Class Notes
You can see the in-class assignment here. Replace the questions/prompts with your responses. If you’re really confused, you can view the example’s html code (view > page source) to see how you should write the html for your own in-class assignment.
Try to keep your html neat. See some beautifully written code here.
Once you established where you’re going to save your html files on you local device, DON’T CHANGE IT. You should have synced this folder with your root folder on your remote server. The two arrows in a circle/yin-yang will sync the files on your local and remote server. The down arrow will get the files from your remote server and the up arrow will put the files from your local device to your remote server.
Here is a link to a list of html tags and their uses.
Keep in mind that your website will look different on different web browsers.
Jamie has high-lighted some important parts of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
