Homework #2 --
Remember to follow all the standard requirements.
This assignment will demonstrate:
Basic HTML knowledge
Making a basic index.html page
Create a basic HTML5 index page. You may start with the HTML5 Template which is in the Resources Page
if you wish.
This page will be the main index.html (home) page for your
student Web site.
Put these elements into your index page:
- A main <div> tag. Put an id attribute into this <div> tag, which you
can use to style the overall location, size, etc., of the page. I like to use a value
of "mainDiv" or something similar for the id attribute
of my main <div> tag.
- A few paragraph tags (<p>).
You can use Greeking text in these
paragraphs if you wish, for now. You can put in real content in a later assignment.
Validate your index.html page with the W3C's
page. I will also be validating your page, so this
validation will be part of your grade. Your page should
validate as an HTML5 page.
Upload your pages to your Freehostia site.
You can test your pages on the class server by selecting the
"Student Sites" link on the class site and then
clicking your student number in the bulleted list.
When you are all done with this assignment, make sure you
back up your pages to multiple locations, such as
- A jump drive
- An external hard drive
- iDrive online
