Developing Web Pages for Teaching


Brian M. Tissue - Department of Chemistry, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0212, tissue@vt.edu

Introduction

The following links go to the pages developed for several past workshops. Below is a condensed version of the workshop material (updated Aug. 2000).

Creating Web Pages

A useful technique to learn about HTML is to look at the source code of a page. In the browser's View menu select Source (IE) or Page Source (Netscape). Internet Explorer will open the source in Notepad (or another editor) and you can edit the file and save it to your local disk. If you have the full suite of Netscape tools, you can edit a file by right clicking on the link and choosing Open Link in Composer.

Basic Examples

Examples with Images and Links

Examples with Style Sheets

Frames and Interactive Web Pages
