Assignment 7

You already have a web page, whose root is the file index.html in the pages subdirectory of your IS account.

Using SimpleText, Word, Word Pad, or the word processor of your choice (But not PageMill, Netscape Collaborator Composer or another WYSIWYG HTML editor!), create two web pages which are linked to each other. The first page should be called index.html. (If you already have a web page, you do NOT have to destroy your index.html home page. Just put a link somewhere NEAR THE TOP which points to assignment 7!!)

Each of the two pages must have at least one graphic, and a link to the other page. One graphic should be gotten from the web, from a LEGAL clip art file. The other one should be of your own creation. And, finally, one of the graphics should actually be a link to the other page.

They do not have to be pretty or interesting. We are only interested in the technical process for this particular assignment! Of course, it will be easiest if you begin with the index.html that has been created in the early assignment, which you can download from the pages directory of your UNIX account on the IS machine. (If you are on a Mac machine, you may obtain a few sample gif files from the course software folder in the "wwwimages" folder.)

As a hint, make certain that you test your pages locally using Netscape. Also, it will be easier if all of your HTML and gif files are in the same folder, and all use lower case letters.

Finally, upload your files (both the gif and HTML) using Fetch or another FTP client to the UNIX server. Your files should go in the directory (i.e., folder) called "pages" on the UNIX server.) Make certain you transfer the HTML files as text, and the gif files as Raw Data. Test your files using Netscape again.
