CSC 551: Web Programming
HW1: Creating a Web Page
For your first assignment, you are to create your own home page that will be placed on the Web. In addition to telling the world about you, your home page will serve as a central repository of Web-based applications that you develop over the semester.
The layout and content of your Web page are entirely up to you. I encourage you to be creative and produce a document that you are proud to display to the world. At a bare minimum, your page must provide the following:
- Your page must have your name prominently centered at the top.
- There should be several sections to the page (e.g., Personal Info, Hobbies,
Favorite Links), each with its own heading. At least one section must have
multiple paragraphs in it.
- Your page should perform some text formatting (bold, italics, color, BIG) but try
not to overdue it to the point that the content is compromised.
- You should include a favorite quote (e.g., a poem or line from a movie) using
a BLOCKQUOTE element.
- There should be at least one list (e.g., your top-ten favorite CDs).
- There should be at least 5 links in the page, including a link to the Creighton
University page and to the CSC 551 home page. At least one of those links
must occur in a sentence.
- There should be at least 2 images in the page, one of which must be stored
locally along with the Web page.
- Your page should have its location and last modification date automatically
displayed at the
bottom. View the source for this Web page and cut-and-paste the appropriate
text into your page in order to accomplish this.
In class next week, we will go through the steps required to upload your home page to a Web server (by default, the Creighton University server on www.creighton.edu). As such, you must bring a copy of your home page and any supporting files (e.g., images, style sheet) on a disk. Of course, if you already know how to upload to the university server or are running your own server, you may upload your page before class. Or, you can look at the tutorial at the bottom of the CSC107 How To Page for step-by-step instructions. In any case, you should also bring a printout of the source of your home page to hand in.
