Quiz

  1. Your best friend from elementary school finds you on the Internet and says he wants to trade home page links. How do you put a link to his page at http://www.cheapsuits.com/~billybob/ on your page?

  2. Your home page will be at http://www.mysite.com/home.htm when you put it on the Internet. Write the HTML code to go on that page so that when someone clicks the words all about me, he sees the page located at http://www.mysite.com/ mylife.htm.

  3. You plan to publish a CD-ROM disk containing HTML pages. How do you create a link from a page in the \guide directory folder to the \guide\maine\katahdin.htm page?

  4. How about a link from \guide\maine\katahdin.htm to the \guide\arizona\ superstitions.htm page?

  5. Rewrite the following use of the anchor tag so that it conforms to the XHTML standards and links to the file MyHomePage.html:

<A HREF="myhomepage.htm">Click here to go to my page</A>

Answers

  1. Put the following on your page:

    <a href="http://www.cheapsuits.com/~billybob/">
    my buddy billy bob's page of inexpensive businesswear</a>
    
  2. <a href="mylife.htm">all about me</a>

    The following would work equally well, although it would be harder to test on your hard drive:

    <a href="http://www.mysite.com/mylife.htm">all about me</a>
  3. <a href="maine/katahdin.htm">mount katahdin</a>
  4. <a href="../arizona/superstitions.htm"> the superstition range</a>

  5. <a href="MyHomePage.html"> Click here to go to my page</a>

    The HTML tags and attribute name must be all lowercase, the case of the letters in the URL should match that of the file, and the extension should also be an exact match of that of the file being referenced.

Exercises

  • To make a formatted list of your favorite sites, click the Bookmarks button in Netscape, click Edit Bookmarks, and then select File, Save As. You can then open that bookmark page in any text editor and add other text and HTML formatting as you prefer. (Alas, there's no easy way to export your Microsoft Internet Explorer favorites list as a single Web page.)
