Assignment 4

You already have a web page, whose root is the file index.html in the pages subdirectory of your I5 account.

Using SimpleText, Word, Word Pad, or the word processor of your choice (But not DreamWeaver, 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 assign4.html

Since you.have a web page already, you should NOT destroy your index.html home page. Just put a link somewhere NEAR THE TOP which points to assignment 4.

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 was been created in the earlier assignment. (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 or Internet Explorer. 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 WS-FTP or another FTP client to the I5 UNIX server. Your files should go in the directory (i.e., folder) called "public_html" 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.

Email the grading account for your section to tell us that your page is ready for grading. The subject of your message should be "Assignment 4" and the body should include both your name and the HTML address in the form:
