UP TO SPEED WITH HTML AND VISUAL STUDIO
1. To refresh your memory of HTML, go to http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp. The “read about
…” links in the instruction point to references for specific elements.
2. Watch and follow along the step-by-step video help on Bb. Save them to your hard drive first.
3. Do not use spaces in file names or folder names.
4. If you see squiggly lines underneath your code, usually that indicates errors. Fix them before continuing.
5. View the page in browser often to make sure the code is correct.
Prime Properties is a small real estate company that specializes in residential properties. The owner, Maria
Valdez, would like a Web site to showcase her listings and provide a point of contact for her clients, who are mainly middle-class working adults who are looking for a home in the northwest Chicago suburbs. Maria would like a home page, a listings page that contains information about her properties, a financing page, and a contact page.
A site map for the Prime Properties Web site is shown on the right.
The site map describes the architecture of the Web site, a Home page with three main content pages: Listings, Financing, and Contact. A sample page layout is displayed on the right. It contains a site logo, a navigation area, a content area, and a footer area for copyright information.
