This course covers the design and implementation of websites. Various web standards, as developed by the World Wide Web Consortium and by browser manufacturers, are studied. HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 specifications are covered, including topics such as text control, images, hypertext links, tables, frames, and embedded objects (e.g., video and applets). Cascading style sheets (CSS1 and CSS2), a web scripting language (such as JavaScript), CGI programming, and their use in Dynamic HTML are also covered. Design and development topics include ease of navigation, download time, maintaining a consistent look and feel across multiple pages, making a website work well across multiple browsers, and web server selection and configuration.
