July 22, 2013

Due by end of class

Create a new html document with TextWrangler. Save it in a folder on your computer as assignment1.html

Write the HTML for our syllabus. Remember, HTML is a descriptive process, where you describe parts of a document to the best of your ability.

Please FTP your finished html file to the /students/yourname/assignment1 directory and link to it from a post that you create here on the class site. Be sure to assign the category “HTML basics” to your post so it will show up alongside your classmates.
