Here is the Homework Assignment for HTML, CSS and PHP:

  1. Create an HTML page in Notepad with the basic skeleton (see Briggs p. 23) that includes: <h1> <p> <ul> <a href=”blahblah” target=”_blank”>
  2. Add CSS rules (Briggs p. 29) for body {} h1 {} in a <style>   </style> element in the <head> element
  3. Save page as test.html in Notepad.
  4. FTP that using Filezilla to Host = alpha.lasalle.edu User name = (standard) Password = 12345_abc (first 5 of SSN, underscore, first 3 of last name); put file IN your public_html folder
  5. View in the browser: URL is of the form http://www.lasalle.edu/~smithj1/test.html
  6. Make a PHP page with the basic HTML skeleton, call it  sum.php with a section of PHP <?php … ?> that declares $a =5; $b = 7; $sum = $a + $b; echo “The total is $sum”;
  7. Also FTP that page to your public_html folder
  8. View in the browser: URL is of the form http://www.lasalle.edu/~smithj1/sum.php
  9. Make links to these twofiles, explaining what you did, on the Other page of your blog

Due Feb. 13 at the end of the day. If you cannot get in to the alpha server, let me know today and I will have IT send you a new password this week
