      • Anatomy of an HTML document
      • Learning to Use HTML
        • When reading the course text, be sure to enter the HTML code as you read it so that you can get a feel for what the code is doing. Entering the code is a much more effective way to learn HTML than simply reading about it.
      • Important HTML Elements

        • NEVER USE spaces or special characters (!@#$%^&, etc) in your file names. A space when used becomes %20 which a user has a very hard time typing into a URL.
        • If you must have a space use an underscore '_' instead as in page_1.html
        • ALL html files must use the extension .html not .htm.

Web Development Cycle
A discussion on the cycle/process of creating, editing, and reviewing web development.
Using Dreamweaver
A short overview of how DW is used in this course.

Be sure to visit the following sites for additional tutorials:

  • Dreamweaver
  • There are a number of online books at the UNT library using the Safari Books Online system. Look under e-books and search on dreamweaver.
  • Also, the Internet is loaded with tutorials and examples.
Managing Dreamweaver Sites
DW uses sites (what I like to call projects) to hold your web pages. You have to create a site, before you can begin developing web pages.
Creating your HOME page
This captivate will run through the steps of create a basic home page (index.html).

Uploading index.html to classes.lt.unt.edu
This captivate will run through how to use winscp to upload your content to classes.lt.unt.edu

BE SURE that you upload into the course directory (i.e. LTEC_3260_020 or CECS_5420_020) which will be under the SEMESTER directory. That will be two directories below the directory that your SFTP program will place you, which will be named your EUID.

Assignment 1 Overview
This captivate walks your through the steps to a) create three of the five assignment 1 pages, link them together with a common navigation elements, upload, and examine the results on your server account.
Validating
This captivate talks about validating your home page.
  • Other Notes:
    • Practice uploading to course account.
    • Why Validate your Web page?
    • About the W3C Validation Service
    • A very handy validation addon for Firefox that can be used while you are looking at your web page. I find this quicker to use than the web-based validation service.
