HTML Exercise (due July 3)
Given your final project may require you to build out a website, your first code exercise is to build out the HTML for a number of elements. To help guide you in this process — and to introduce you to the code exercises for the course — we have some basic rules to set up.
- You can use online resources, course materials, your TA, and lab-mates for support. This being said, others are not allowed to do your work for you. Also, if you are drawing from online resources, course materials, your TA or peers, you must;
- Cite any knowledge that is not yours in a comment in the code. The internet is a huge repository of information and you are welcome to use it, but you must let us know when something does not originate from your own knowledge.
- If work has been copied without citation the exercise grade will be zero. Please make sure to include comments indicating where you had assistance or learned.
For this coding task you will be building out a collection of HTML elements (no styling). Please complete the following before lecture on July 3:
- Using the HTML5 template as a starting point, build out the following elements in HTML only:
- An in-text link
- An image and caption
- An image inside a link
- Four levels of heading
- A paragraph
- Add comments through-out the code to indicate what resources you drew upon to complete the exercise.
- Validate the page using the HTML Validator (W3C) to find any errors or potential problems in your markup.
Your submission is due before midnight on July 3.
