By the end of class we will have created and published a complete web site that includes a home page, resume and hot list. To do this, we will use only a simple text editor. Here is an example of what you will have:

Now that you know everything about HTML, it's time to make your personal web site. Follow these instructions:
A web page is just a local document until it is published. I have a place for you to place things on my web server. The following tutorial will help you post your web page on the Internet. I will distribute the ftp login information in class.
For a perspective and a chance to practice some more use Webmonkey, a site full of web authoring tutorials. Note that these pages are constructed to allow you to print them out if you wish. The directions are a bit chatty, but give you a quick introduction to the subject.
First, read through the following to get a general understanding of HTML
Then, use the Webmonkey Teaching Tool to learn the following skills and tags:
In each case, be sure to practice the tag by completing the "try it" link at the end of the article if one is present.
You will always use "inline" graphics. They are placed using the <img src="url"> tag. The URL can be absolute or relative, but 99% of the time you will use relative (linking to another person's links is both bad form and risky, as who knows with they will move them?).
I'd like you to take a fair amount of time and work on graphics. There are a number of links available to help you at any level. Please view the table on the right for places to help your graphics work.
I strongly suggest going through Graphics 101.
