Introduction to Computer Programming
In this exercise you will practices some simple HTML markup
by creating a "Description List"
The goal of this exercise is to create a web page which lists
guidelines for properly preparing written homework assignments
(as, for example, in math or science class).
Your document should include the following:
You can learn more about the use of the Description List tags
- Structure: The document should have appropriate opening and closing
"HTML", "HEAD", and "BODY" tags.
- Title: the page should have an appropriate tab title using
the "TITLE" tag.
- Heading: use the H1 tag to create an appropriate page title
- Introduction: the page should have a brief paragraph at the
begining which describes the purpose of the document
(just as this page does).
- List of items, as a Description List (use the "DL" tag).
For each item:
Items to include in the list are:
- The Description Title ("DT" tag) should be one or two
words that label the item (some listed below);
- The Description Data ("DD" tag) should then be a sentence
or two which explains why this item is important.
- Class name
- Pencil (prefered over pen)
- Paper (what kind to use or avoid)
- Stapled (always, if more than one page)
- what else...?
The name of the file for this web page should be your first
name, followed by the initial letter of your last name,
followed by the two digits "01".
The file extension should be ".html".
So, for example, a student by the name of Ada Lovelace would create a
file called "AdaL01.html".
To submit your assignment you should print a copy of the source code
file, and print a copy of the resulting "output" (what it looks like
in a browser).
Staple the two together, with the ouput page on top, and put your name
on the top of the first page.
You should also upload a copy of your file to
