  1. Create a personal web page from scratch, using HTML, as we did last time and discussed in our textbook in Chapter 4. Remember, you must create a file that contains the HTML code and store the file as clean ascii text. For convenience later, name the file index.htm

    • Your name and a picture of you or a picture of something else that will remind people of you should be at the top of the page.
    • A horizontal bar after your name and picture
    • Include a short bibliography in list form including (an unordered list):
      • I’m a **** at CofC (replace **** with your classification and make “CofC” a clickable link to the college web site)
      • I’m majoring in ****
      • My hometown is *****
      • When not studying, I spend time doing ****, ****, **** (include however many things you’d like to mention)
      • A web site I find useful (or enjoy) is **** because ****. (Replace the first **** with a link to some website that you think people should read and replace the second **** with an explanation of why you think it is important or interesting.
    • Follow the list with a paragraph telling a little about yourself: for example, what you hope to do after you complete your education.
    • Leave several blank lines under the paragraph and end your page with a line that says “Last updated on ****” and replace **** with today’s date.
  3. Customize your page by choosing colors for the background and fonts. Add additional information, if you wish, but don’t forget any of the required elements.
  4. Verify that your page is just as you wish it to be by viewing it in a browser. It is actually a good idea to view it in more than one browser, like IE and Firefox, to make sure it looks good in both. If you are not satisfied with your web page, go back to earlier steps and make it look better before moving on to step 5.
  5. Post your page (index.htm and any picture file that it references) to your CofC webpace.

Purpose

This assignment focuses on learning HTML and creating websites pages from scratch using a text editor.

Assignment

Create a personal webpage from scratch, using HTML, as we did in class. Use Ch. 4 of the textbook as reference. Store the file that contains the HTML code as text. Name the file index.html .

Required Elements

Your webpage must contain:

  • At the top, put your name and a picture of you (or a picture of something else that will remind people of you).
  • Place a horizontal bar after your name and picture.
  • Include a short biography in list form including (an unordered list):
    • I’m a xxxx at CofC (replace xxxx with your classification and make "CofC" a clickable link to the college web site).
    • I’m majoring in xxxx (link to the website of your department).
    • My hometown is xxxx (link to a good website for your hometown).
    • When not studying, I spend time doing xxxx, yyyy, zzzz (include however many things you’d like to mention).
    • A website I find useful (or enjoy) is xxxx because yyyy. (Replace xxxx with a link to this website, and replace yyyy with why you think it is important or interesting.)
  • Follow the list with a paragraph telling a little about yourself: for example, what you hope to do after you graduate.
  • Leave several blank lines under the paragraph.
  • End your page with a line that says "Last updated on xxxx." (Replace xxxx with the appropriate date.)

Customize your page by choosing colors for the background and fonts.

Bonus Elements

Include additional information if you wish, however you must have all the required elements (see above).

Testing

Verify that your page is correct by viewing it in a browser. It is actually a good idea to view it in more than one browser, like Internet Explorer and Firefox, to make sure it looks correct in both.

If you are not satisfied, go back to earlier steps and fix things.

To upload your files, you need to use a secure FTP client - see instructions.

Once you have uploaded your files, you can view your webpage at http://xxxx.stu.cofc.edu (substitute xxxx with your username).
