- (4) Spiggy Topes logged in as topessp. Spiggy then created a project
home page in Dreamweaver which he called stuff.htm. He saved the file
in a folder called Projects located in his web folder.
- Give the full path of this file (ie, H:\ ...):
- What does Spiggy need to type in to the address box of Internet Explorer
in order to display this page on the web?
- (6) Spiggy placed a graphic image into this home page. Here's the code
The graphic image did not appear when his teacher, Horatio, opened Spiggy's
home page. "But it works for me", Spiggy wailed.
- Why did it work for Spiggy but not for Horatio?
Because only Spiggy can see what's in the H:\webstuff
For Horatio to see the graphic (or any file) in his browser it needs to
be located in Spiggy's web folder
- What is the first thing that Spiggy should do to fix the problem?
Copy or move iggy_pop.jpg from webstuff to h:\www
- The next thing Spiggy needs to do is to change the <IMG> tag to
make the graphic display.
Write out the full tag in the same format as above.
Since Spiggy has just dumped the graphic into his
web folder (top level) it will be displayed with the following code:
- Why use styles in a web page?
"... designs stay consistent throughout the whole
Don't need to use <font> tags. Consistent and uniform look over a number
- (10) Spiggy has typed in these styles:
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
- "Dang!" said Spiggy, "I've forgotten how to use the div.left
What code should Spiggy type in to use this style (in the format <TAG
<div class="left"> </div>
- "Gosh!", exclaimed Spiggy, "I didn't expect the <H2>
heading to turn out like that!".
What 4 characteristics did his heading now have (from the style definition
- colour is now maroon
- font is Arial
- size is twice the default font size
('em' means the font size set by the page or browser)
- aligned in the center of the page
- What TAG ATTRIBUTE would Spiggy use to place a graphic image on the right
hand side of a paragraph of text? (ie tag name = something)
- (4) Spiggy placed a graphic into his web page. "Urggg!", he cried,"It's
all screwed up". "Let's take a look at it", said teacher Horatio.
He brings up the page in Dreamweaver and sees the following Properties panel:
- What is wrong with the way that the graphic is displayed?
"He has tampered with the size until it looks
distorted, the H & W are incorrect". Out of the original proportions.
The bold numbers in the W and H fields show that the graphic has been
squashed - probably to attempt to make it into a thumbnail
- How did Spiggy easily fix the problem?
Click on Reset Size
- "But I want a thumbnail there", protested Spiggy.
How should Spiggy start off making a thumbnail of this graphic?
Open in Photoshop and Crop or Resize to desired thumbnail
- Spiggy goes over to the Bolling PC Lab to create a web page. But he cannot
remember the darn resolution of the flat panel screen. What was it now?
1024 x 768
- 800 x 600
- 640 x 480
- 1024 x 768
- 1600 x 1200
- Spiggy places his photograph on the scanner bed and fires up Photoshop.
He selects Import -> Twain5 but when he gets to the Control Panel he cannot
remember what resolution to scan his photo at for his web page. Was it:
96 dpi for the web, 150/300 dpi for printing.
- 72 dpi
- 150 dpi
- 96 dpi
- 300 dpi
- The scan finishes and Spiggy sees his graphic in Photoshop. "Woaaah",
interjects his teacher Horatio, "you nearly saved that graphic in the
wrong format. Remember that you may want to edit that graphic again".
What format should he use?
- Now Spiggy wants to tart up the photo. He thinks he knows how to use Photoshop
but when he looks at the menus he can't remember which one gives him the "Quickfix"
panel. Which menu item is it?
- Spiggy wants to set his web page text to be black on a white background.
But he can't remember which way round the style color codes go. Can you help
background-color: #FFFFFF; color: #000000;
- background-color: #000000; color: #FFFFFF;
- background-color: #FFFFFF; color: #FFFFFF;
- background-color: #000000; color: #000000;
- background-color: #FFFFFF; color: #000000;
- (8) Now Spiggy has to test his web page on the Macintosh. He finds a new
iMac. "This isn't so bad", he tells himself, but when he browses
to his home page disaster awaits. The text he carefully set in 12 point Comic
Sans font on his Windows box looks totally different now on the Mac - different
font face and different size.
- What would be different about the size of the text on the screen
text size smaller on the Mac screen
- Why would this be different?
Windows thinks there are 96 pixels per inch, the
Mac thinks there are 72 pixels per inch (actually there are 85 ppi) and
so 1" font height on Windows is 33% more screen pixels than 1"
on the Mac. So 12 pts (1/6th ") will display in the same proportions
and so will be 33% smaller on the Mac screen.
- Why would the typeface not display as Spiggy set it (ie Comic Sans)?
"Ahah", says Spiggy, "I'm using a stylesheet so I know how
to fix that one". Here's the style that Spiggy was using:
Simply because the Mac system did not contain the
MS Sans Serif font.
font-family: "MS Comic Sans";
- How would he change this style to display the same on his new iMac (ie
what font-family, and what font size would he use)?
Use font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif (one
of these is bound to be present on the Mac) (from Q 5) and declare font
size in pixels (px) not points in the style.
While on the England programme Spiggy decides to visit Gloucester and watch
the Cherry-and-Whites thrash Leicester in a league rugby match. Once more, Gloucester's
teenage wing sensation scores a brace of tries but Spiggy is distraught because
he cannot remember his name. What was it??
Marcel Garvey of course!
