    • Web page is a single page containing text and graphics that has been labeled with the appropriate HTML coding for the web.
    • Web site is a collection of linked Web pages containing various content that easily be navigated using a Web browser. It includes a beginning file called a home page.
    • From the home page, you can navigate to all other pages on the site.
    • A web page can contain any of the following:
      • Text
      • Graphics (gif or jpeg)
      • Audio (.mid or .wav)
      • Interactive multimedia content that requires a plug-in such as Flash, Shockwave or VML
      • applets (subprograms that run inside the page) which often provide motion graphics, interaction, and sound
    Web Page
  • Terms used on the Web
    • WWW (World Wide Web)
      • The Web is the part of the Internet that includes all files and documents that are available through servers. The two main parts of the Web are Web clients and servers.

      • A link to another Web page on your site or another Web site on World Wide Web.
    • HTML (Hypertext Markup Language)
      • HTML is a markup language or a collection of markup tags that define the various components of a WWW document.
    • Web Server
      • a computer on the World Wide Web (connected to the Internet Backbone) that stores HTML documents that can be retrieved via a Web browser.
  • This is a webpage displayed by Internet Explorer.
  • Essentials of Good Web Design  Navigation buttons or bars are easy to understand and use.    A large site has an index or site map.    The navigation bar or button give the visitor a clue as to where they are, what page of the site they are currently on.    The hierarchy of information is perfectly clear.    Text is big enough to read, but not too big.    Graphics and backgrounds use safe colors.    Page download quickly.    Consistency from page to page  every web page in the site looks like it belongs to the same site.
  • Planning a Web Site
    • Provide answers to the following planning questions.
      • What are the goals of the web?
      • What will its content be?
      • How will it be organized?
      • What do you want it to look like?
  • Hierarchical Structure of Web Site Sketching out a structure before creating a site can save you lots of work later. After you've sketched a map of your site, it's time to start sketching a common layout for each of your pages.
    • Prepare a sketch of your proposed website that shows the relationships between the pages.
  • Hierarchical Structure of Web Site
  • Web Page Development
    • Web page can be created in a number of ways:
      • Using a plain text editor such as Notepad (writing HMTL code).
      • Using a WYSIWYG editor (web authoring tool) such as Microsoft FrontPage or Macromedia Dreamweaver.
  • Writing HTML Code
    • HTML Exercise
      • All you need is a text editor (eg: Notepad)
      • Open Notepad
    • Type the following code into your file and then save as index.html
    <html> <head> <title> My First Web Page </title> </head <body> Hello World </body> </html>
  • Writing HTML Code
    • Open browser to view your page
  • Writing HTML Code (continue..) <html> <head> <title> My First Web Page </title> </head <body> <center><H1>Hello World</h1><br> <a href=http://www.uum.edu.my> Universiti Utara Malaysia</a> </body> </html>
  • Using FrontPage
    • FrontPage is a great Web editing tool for people with limited knowledge and time for HTML coding.
    • It’s similar to using Microsoft Word and it allows for two different editing modes, Normal and HTML view.
    • As you are bolding text and inserting graphics in Normal view, FP is writing the HTML code for you.

Page View tabs Used to display your Web site in six different views: Page, Folder, Reports, Navigation and Tasks. Views bar The small, blinking line is where your typed text appears in the Web page. Insertion point The name of the Web page you are working on. Web page name This is where you type in text and work on your Web pages. You can have more than one Web page open at a time. Web page window
  • Understanding the FrontPage Screen Allows you to see the Web page as it would appear in a Web browser. Preview Allows you to edit the Web page directly in HTML code.   It is very textual and shows the code that translates the code onto the Internet. HTML Allows you to edit the Web page in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) mode. Normal Description Page View
