Assignment 1: Introductory Web Site

Due: Sunday, September 17th, by 5pm (end of 2nd week)

Assignment Description:

Create a new web directory in your grace account (I am making you name it 737 if you are a Grad, 409 if you are an Undergrad) for your assignments, and place in that directory an index.html page from which you will link all subsequent assignments.

The page must include a picture of yourself, your name, and your preferred e-mail address (the one you check most often, and would like me to use). Do your best to use the principles of design you learned in 320/741; I want to see the best you can do (that does not mean putting in every type of bell and whistle you can imagine; keep it simple and clean.)

All subsiquent individual assignments and in-class exercises will be graded going through this page, so make sure the link from the classlist is correct!

Separate directory on Grace
File named index.html
Clean and accurate HTML
Tables are for tabular data ONLY!
