Polishing and Publishing your HTML website ( duration 2 weeks)

Stage 1 : Discover the power of cascading Style Sheets (css)

Cascading style sheets are used to add themes to the website
To understand how, visit http://csszengarden.com/ and try different themes by clicking on different links. They are the same HTML files but different css files.

How to add a cascading style sheet to your website

  1. Open google.com
  2. Browse css templates and download one that you like.
  3. Make sure that it is copied in the same folder as your project (the css file is beside your html files)
  4. Add this code in the head section changing only the cssfilename
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="cssfilename.css" media="screen" />
  6. Repeat steps 4  & 5 in all your html files
  7. Then open your website!

Since the dropbox public link is too long wwe are going to create a free, easy and short domain name, here is how:

  1. Open dot.tk
  2. choose your unique and free domain name
  3. then in the section forward this domain too add your public link that your domain name will point too
