Weekly Project (CSS 1) — "Text Landscape"

Using only HTML and CSS, present a text (maximum 1000 words, minimum one paragraph) on one .html page that requires reader participation (scroll, click, mouse-over, etc.) to completely read. To do this, consider breaking up your text into multiple parts, and consider making your page very wide or very tall to encourage exploration. I suggest you use id links (to different areas on the same page) and/or hover effects. Do not use images—focus on things you can do only with text. (Also, this text can be your own or someone else's, but if it's not yours, make sure to credit it appropriately.) When you're done, make sure to link your project to your class homepage.

Readings B — "art.yale.edu"

Explore art.yale.edu a bit first if you aren't acquainted.

Then, read two texts:

Finally, find a specific section of the conversation you're interested in. Copy and paste this section into your "reading-response-b.html" document, and use the appropriate HTML tags to render the text legible. Now, insert your own opinion or response by writing your name and what you'd say into the section. When you're done, make sure you link this from your class homepage.
