Website Design Assignment


The purpose of this assignment is to acquaint you with a fundamental principle of good website design, the separation of content and format, and to teach you the mechanics of writing valid Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).


  1. Read through the pages of the Website Design subsite, paying special attention to the section on page mechanics. Take good notes!
  2. Practise creating simple webpages using a variety of different style sheets. Use the many resources available in the listing of resources and in the wider World Wide Web.
  3. As you practise, be sure to use the HTML validator and CSS validator provided by the WWW Consortium. Concentrate on writing valid HTML and CSS.
  4. When you are ready, choose one of the topics approved by your teacher and work independently to write and then style your content.
  5. Judge your work against the markscheme. Review the comments on common errors made by others. When you think your work measures up, ask a classmate to mark your page. Based on your classmate’s review, revise your HTML and CSS. Repeat until you have achieved perfection!
