Talk:Web Design/HTML Challenges

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In the past I've just been using some of the advanced challenges here to fill in some things that might not be included in peoples first projects, such as ImageMaps, tabular tables etc. But I want to re-organise these challenges to make them helpful to a general learner. Links to online resources that explain things needed will enable learners to learn Just-In-Time to do the challenge.

This means adding lots of visual examples for creating a basic web page. Perhaps:

  • challenges 1 and 2 with HTML only (assigning basic elements, include images in second one)
  • challenges 3 and 4 need to link to basic stylesheet, 4 could include divs (with links to relevant resource of course!) Michaelnelson 19:53, 17 December 2006 (UTC)Reply

Under Construction

[edit source]

Do you think that 5 months is considered long enough to remove the under construction template? Matthew Greyling 04:31, 29 December 2007 (UTC)Reply

Order of learning

[edit source]

Is it just me, or are lessons 3 and 4 dependent on knowing styles far sooner than they are taught in the curriculum. If I use traditional attributes they wont be validated by the w3 validator that is recommended but there has been no talk on the effective use of styles yet. Perhaps these HTML lessons could be restructured with this in mind.


Lesson 3 relies on the bordercolor attribute which is deprecated in the DTD used in the lessons.

The only way to overcome this is with styles or CSS.

Challenge 3: Tables for tabular data

[edit source]

Why don't you use html for the little table on the right instead of using an image? It would be easy to do and also give the reader a usable example on the page. They wouldn't have to go off site to get the markup for a simple table. Mattisse 21:37, 24 February 2011 (UTC)Reply
