Last class, we got a couple hand outs. The first was our guidelines/rubric for the second part of our web page. Among these requirements were things such as a background picture,

<img src=”lolyeah.lol”>

and a unique marquee. Then we got a handout that had a bunch of new html codes to use for the 2nd web page. Among these codes were the different alignments (center, left, right, and justice). There was character formatting attributes (typeface, decoration, color and size. It also showed the difference between a e-mail code, an external code, and a jump link (there’s not much of a difference between them). Also on the sheet it describes what HTML means and the 2 separate parts which is hypertext, which are basically links, and markup language which are tags that influence things. Then there are list tags which were described. There was the definition list codes, which would be <dl> to start it, <dt> for the terms, and <dd> for the definitions. Then there are unordered lists, which is <ul> to start it, and <li> for list items. Then there are the customized bullets for the unordered list. These are circle, square, and disc, which is default. The next would be ordered lists, which is <ol> to start and <li> for list items. The customized types for this would be <ol type=”a”>,

<ol type=”A”>,

<ol type=”i”>,

<ol type=”I”>, and

<ol type=”1” value=”4”>.

The final thing we learned was block-level formatting. This is formatting that controls an entire section of content. The codes for this is

The homework was the Unit C concept review.

September 14th--Nick Goulette

I was only in class for 45 minutes and during this time we went over the grading policy which Michaud handed out to everybody. She then showed us what a wiki was and how we could post on it through the video on this wiki's home page. She also showed us the luck of the draw feature found on her school website. This is what I remembered. We also took notes on what a wiki stands for (What I Know IS...) and what a URL stands for in her slide show (Uniform Resource Locator). The parts of a URL include the Protocol (normally http) followed by the :// and the next part is usually the name of the server that stores files like www. or wiki. (there are many others. The next part in a URL like https://www.google.com is the domain or the google.com part, the last part are the directories and file extensions such as /images in google. Another thing we learned in the slide show that day was HTML, which means hypertext markup language. HTML is a set of rules and tags used in writing a hypertext document, meaning a document accessable by the internet. It is called markup language because it is not plain english and has a lot of different key combinations that you have to use in a specific order to make up the page. WE DIDNT HAVE ANY HW
