The purpose of this exercise is twofold: first to understand the nature of HTML tags and how they control the appearance of Web pages, and, second, to design your own Web page by copying the format of a model page and substituting content.
1. Using NetScape, scan the UW-Parkside faculty web pages until you find an attractive model web page containing at least one graphic (e.g., picture of the instructor) and some biographical and/or academic information.
1.1 Get your lab instructor's approval of this page as an acceptable model.
1.2 Print the approved Web page.
1.3 Switch to "Source Document" under View menu, and print the raw HTML code.
1.4 Number each distinct HTML tag element (e.g., Table, Graphic, H1 heading, paragraph, etc.) on the raw HTML source code document and number the corresponding output element on the printed Web page document.
This should help you understand the role of HTML tags in formating Web page output.
2. In this exercise you will convert the model Web page into your own Web Page, replacing the faculty image with one you select, and the faculty information with information about yourself.
2.1 Create a folder labeled Assign11.WWW on your floppy disk.
2.2 In Netscape, select "Save As" and choose the "Source" option to copy the model Web page into Assign11.WWW, and rename it MyPage.html.
2.3 Find a nice photograph on the Web that you would like to substitute for the faculty image, and copy it to Assign11.WWW by holding down the mouse button and selecting "Save this image as ...".
2.4 Open MyPage.html in Adobe GoLive and convert the image and information into your selected image and your own personal information.
2.5 Print out MyPage.html.
For extra credit, you may embed external links to 2 - 3 interesting Web pages, indicating their role or purpose.
