Overview

Exercise eight asks you to construct another page, use tables (visible and/or invisible) to control page layout and display some data, and link it to and from your index.html page. Fill out the exercise feedback form and you are done.

Remember to take Quiz 8 and contribute to the topic related discussions on Blackboard Learn+ as well.

Details

  1. Create another HTML page; name the file as you wish and save it with your other HTML files on your hard drive. Use the skeleton below or write your own.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<title></title>
</head>
<body>


<p>
<!-- validator code using text links -->
<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer">Validate HTML</a>
&nbsp;|&nbsp;
<a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer">Validate CSS</a>
<!-- end validator code using text links -->
</p>
</body>
</html>


  1. Use a visible or invisible table to hold the elements of your page and give your text some margins. This table may be a simple one or two celled table.
  2. Use a nested visible table inside the first table to display some data. Some ideas for this table include ingredients for a baking project, a chart of your favorite team's record, or some small images with descriptions. This is an opportunity to create something fun!
  3. In addition to your nested table, make two headings and three paragraphs discussing how you might use tables in your final project. If you run out of text, you may use some of this "random text" to fill out your paragraphs.
  4. Use style definitions in your external or an internal style sheet to format several aspects of your text and table(s).
  5. Add a link on your page back to your "home" or index.html page.
  6. Add a link to this exercise from your index.html page.
  7. Upload your files to the server. Keep the same relative locations between the files so your links still work.
  8. Retest all your pages; make sure the tables view correctly and that your links work correctly.
  9. Validate with no errors your new page, make sure your index.html page still validates.
  10. Fill out the exercise feedback form and you are done.

Conclusion

Tables are very powerful tools. They have lost favor to CSS for layout; they work reasonably reliably in almost all browsers.
