Old stuff

Net, WWW, HTML, CSS, RSS, PHP

We’ll discuss the difference between the Internet and the World Wide Web (they are not the same thing). We’ll then do some hands on with HTML and CSS. I’ll introduce RSS (and XML, which it’s made of) and PHP, which is what most blogs (such as WordPress) are written in. To give us a common source on these, we’ll use W3Schools.com.

(We’ll come back to all this as needed later on.)

Some examples: Here’s an RSS feed I made for a DART class (try it in Firefox). Here is what the PHP test page will show if you post it on alpha.lasalle.edu.

For this week, be able to write a basic HTML page with a CSS rule embedded, and add the test for PHP (<?php phpinfo(); ?>). Post that to alpha.lasalle.edu next week when we discuss FTP. Then  experiment with RSS readers and install one either here or at home. I used CITA but it got buggy, so I switched to feedreader.com that Rettberg mentions.
