Due Jan. 31, 1997

You should prepare a minimum of five pages, covering the following topics:

  1. A page telling us about yourself. This should be your ``main'' page (i.e., the index.htm page).

  2. A resume page.

  3. A page consisting of one of your papers. This page should make use of targets (for a table of contents) and you should have some references which refer to URLs. These references should be hyperlinks to the references.

  4. Two hobby or personal interest pages. These pages should serve as information resources, telling and showing us several things about the hobby/interest as well as containing links to additional information.

These pages should make use of the following:

  1. Each page should end in a ``signature,'' informing the reader of the last date of modification to the page, your name, and your e-mail address in a mailto URL. The signatures should include a ``home'' button which is a link to your main page.

  2. Each page should make use of a background and have a title (the title bar title as well as a Heading 1 title at the top of the page).

  3. The pages should make use of images and links, as appropriate. At least one image must be one that you personally scanned.

  4. Basic formatting should be used. (I.e., headings, lists, etc.)

  5. Proper spelling and grammar should be used.

Properly executing these preceding requirements will earn you a grade of ``C.'' Properly executing any three of the following requirements, in addition to the preceding requirements , will earn you a ``B,'' while properly executing any six, in addition to the preceding requirements, will earn your an ``A.''

  1. An additional hobby/interest page.

  2. Good use of several scanned images.

  3. Making use of several distinctive images which you designed yourself.

  4. Using unique, self-designed transparent interlaced GIF title headings for each of your pages. These headings can't also be used for fulfilling the previous requirement.

  5. Using distinctive formatting throughout your pages.

  6. Using tables in a moderately complex and interesting manner (e.g., newspaper columns, extensive use of spanning).

  7. Designing your pages so as to work well with slow Internet connections.

  8. Designing your pages so that they work well with text-based as well as GUI-based browsers.

  9. Designing clickable image maps.

  10. Using frames.

  11. Using JavaScript.

You are welcome to make suggestions for additional items to add to this list.

On the 31st, hand-in a document describing your Web pages. This document should point out any features of your pages which you are claiming in order to earn an ``A'' or a ``B.''
