Practice with CSS and Tables

For this assignment, you will create a web page by writing HTML code for a table listing and describing the courses that you are taking this semester, planning to take, or have already taken. Then, you will develop a 1–2 page summary paper.

Tasks:

Part I: Web Page Table Creation

In your web page:

  1. Create three columns that contain the headers Course Number, Course Name, and Instructor Name.
  2. Create the first row of the table using the tags.
    1. Use the table row grouping tags <thead> and <tbody> in your table.
    2. Use cascading style sheet (CSS) to style the table border and background color.
  3. Write descriptions of your courses under each column heading.
  4. Verify the code by submitting it to W3C validator. Present a proof of successful validation (such as a screenshot).
  5. In order to create a screenshot, press PrtScn on your keyboard. This will capture the entire screen and copy it to the clipboard. Then, open a program such as Microsoft Paint or Microsoft Word and press Ctrl+V to paste the screenshot into the application.

Part II: Summary Paper

Develop a 1–2 page summary paper and respond to the following points:

  • Summarize the reasons why CSS and tables should be included in the overall design of the website.
  • Determine and justify the general time and costs relating to implementing the above changes to the website. Time and costs can be estimated, but valid support is required to justify the expense to management.

Note: Your summary paper should utilize at least three scholarly or professional sources (beyond your textbook). Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., in APA format); and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Submission Details:

  • By the due date assigned, save your web page as M4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.html and the summary paper as M4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc and submit them to the Submissions Area.
