  7. 7. Some Things to Remember  You do not have the layout control in a web editor that you do in Word or PowerPoint.  Therefore, the web designers used tables to control the layout out of their pages. If you set the borders of the table to 0 width, you can't see the outline of the tables in the web browser. You will get very frustrated if you try to design a web page without tables. Your graphics will not appear where you want them. introduction why examples
  8. 8. Note: Naming Web Files:  Use all lower case (it will be easier to communicate the URL to others if it is all lower case).  DO NOT have spaces in file names (some old browsers cannot handle spaces. You should rename graphic files if they have spaces)  Try to keep file names as short as possible (this prevents errors in typing in URLs)  URL(Universal Resource Locator)= Site Address ex: URL of hotmail is : www.hotmail.com introduction why examples
  9. 9. Types of Web Pages Any web site composed from a set of web pages: Some of those pages are static (abstract) pages while other pages are dynamics (proactive) pages.
