Assignment 8

Due: December 3/4

You already have a web page from the last assignment, whose root is the file index.html in the pages subdirectory of your IS account. Rename it "assign7.html" and make certain to change any links to it from other pages accordingly.

Use an HTML authoring tool (probably PageMill for the Mac sections or Netscape Collaborator Composer for the Windows sectoin) to create a new index.html, and at least five pages that make up a complete site upon a unifying topic. (Make certain that there is a link on your new homepage/index.html to the old assignment 7 so we can still find it.)

Make a web site that someone might want to read. Make certain your site has interesting information in it; that it is well organized and easy to navigate; and that it is artistically pleasing. Remember, you are publishing not only for this class, but for the whole world to see!

From the technical standpoint, here are some elements that your web page should contain:

Optional elements that you might want to use include:

Try to use the Web Authoring Tool as much as possible, without editing the HTML source directly (except when you need to adjust links).

As before, send email to the grading address when you are done:

The subject of your message should be "Assignment 8" and the body should include the HTML address of the form http://pages.nyu.edu/~login/.
