THE CASE STUDY FROM CHAPTER 3

Guidelines for all Case Studies

Unlike the exercises in the textbook, these case study assignments do not provide step-by-step instructions. Instead, the description for each exercise includes an illustration of how the page should appear in a browser, along with specifications that you can complete in whatever sequence you prefer.

These specifications are detailed enough for you to complete each exercise. However, you’ll need to use your best judgment on how to code many of the details.

Before you do the first exercise, you’ll need to download and unzip the starting files for the website. These files are stored in a folder named case_study and include starting HTML and CSS files for the home page, along with all supporting files such as text files, image, and media. HTML files with “under construction” messages are also included for all of the other pages that can be accessed from the menu that you’ll add in Chapter 7, so you can refer to these pages from the menu. The exercises will instruct you about when to use each of the starting files.

The Instructions

Here is the PDF file with the instructions for Chapter 3.
