  • lecture notes (note that we stopped at style sheets and will get to that after the exam)
  • html code from class --- click on the link, then do "view page source" in your browser in order to see what the source code looks like. you can also save the link to your computer and look at it there. remember to look at it in a plain text editor (like Notepad), not a word processor (like word) because a word processor will probably display it as you see it in the browser, and you want to see the raw html tags!
