Web Publishing Tools
Guidelines for Final Project
Projects submitted for this class will evaluated on the basis of these
- Each web page must include the "DOCTYPE" declaration at the beginning
indicating you used HTML 4.0 Transitional.
- Each web page must include meta tags with appropriate keywords and
- Each web page must have a title.
- Include at least ten hypertext links in your project. At least three
of the links must be internal and three must be to a reference outside
your own web page. The links must work.
- Insert graphics at least ten times in your project. You can use the
same graphic several times throughout the project if you wish.
- Each graphic must include the "alt" tag.
- Each page must have a margin, using either tables or style sheets
to achieve the space.
- If you use any multimedia, you must include a description that describes
it for the visually impaired. If it is an audio file you must include
a caption or transcript.
- If you use frames you must provide a "no frames" alternative.
- If you include a form on your page, there must be an access key alternative
for entering the fields.
- The majority of your pages should be less than 30k. A few can be 30
to 50k. Only one or two can be larger, and there must be a clear reason
for the large size.
- Your page must not crash my computer.
- You must submit at least three of your pages to the W3C html validation
service and turn in the report. (The report does not have to be printed
out, but can be linked to your page.) To receive an "A" for
this course, you must be able to display the "html 4" icon
from W3C on at least three pages.
(Note: some sites, such as Yahoo/Geocities, add their own
code to pages posted on their server. This code may prevent your page
from validating. You will not be faulted for such mistakes by sloppy and
thoughtless servers. If the W3C report shows that only the Geocities code
for their gif is the problem you will still get an "A".)
- You must submit at least three of your pages to the Bobby validation
service and turn in the report.
