Assignments:

Assignment 2:  Monday February 6th. Develop a simple web page containing a head (with title), and a body containing some boldface, some italics, some indentation (id est, variation of margins), at least one working link and some text for which both margins and size are varied; put it in your class web space; verify that it is working properly and e-mail me its address (ideally, its URL) (using the required format) to announce that the task is done. Important: there is no reason, ever, in this class to send an e-mail attachment to me. I don't want attachments and you will get a zero on the assignment for not following this instruction!

Note: everthing you need to complete assignment 2 is contained in your required reading. You can access the web server (webclass.sru.edu) from anywhere on campus! I suggest developing your work at home in a comfortable chair and then shuttling to campus for subsequent copying to your class web space! (or learn another way)

Assignment 3: Due: Friday, February 10th
