Head for Home


Introduction to Website Development

*      In Unit A we will learn the simple rules of creating a webpage with HTML syntax using the Notepad as a native development environment and IE 6.0 or 7.0 to view the results.  We will also create one relative link to another page in the localfolder and two absolute links to other sites on the Internet.

*      In Unit B we will learn to launch the Adobe Dreamweaver application, navigate within the Dreamweaver window, and create a Local Web Site. Then we will reuse the page created by Notepad in Unit A to insert and format a heading and date, create an ordered list, create an unordered list, format characters,      change the text color, change the web page title, check spelling, control font selection, customize fonts,and align fonts to create an outlie for our website to be.

*      In Unit C we will use Dreamweaver to create a new “Home” page for our web site, insert a table to hold pictures, work with pictures to insert, change, and overlay text, copy hypertext enabled text from a Word document, and insert an Image Map with links to other pages.

*      In Unit D we will use Adobe’s Dreamweaver to create a form to control input, add some text entry fields, add radio buttons, add checkboxes, create a pull-down menu, and add a push button to place an order.

*      In Unit E we will return to Adobe’s Dreamweaver to examine how to control page layout with a navigation bar, framesets, and target links. We will then use the Dreamweaver  environment for creating structuring tables and templates for the Travels with Diesel web site.

*      In Unit F we will overview JavaScript, create an initial script to say “Hello World”, and then develop a script to calculate the number of seconds in a day.  Then we will review some of the aspects of DHTML code and create a Cascading Menu for the TWD Home Page.

*      In Unit G we will overview Cascading Style Sheets, describe the creation of a template, describe the different types of style sheets, create a Cascading Style Sheet, apply Cascading Style Sheet attributes to a template, and create a web page from a template
*      In Unit H we will look at some of the aspects of Putting Your Page on the Web including a description of how web hosting works, acquiring domain names, acquiring web space, and transferring files
