Unformatted text preview: 1 XHTML - Case Study I You are hired as a Teachers Assistant in a University. Your first assignment is to create a web page using XHTML that includes your name, department, and the name of your University. This page also has the course information in which you are assisting. Your instructor expects you to adhere to the standards of XHTML. To inform your web page readers that you conform to the XHTML standards, he wants you to include a validation icon on your Web page. 2 Objectives After successfully completing this case study, you should be able to: Create basic XHTML document using Notepad. Define the basic rules of XHTML. Understand DocTypes. Create header section containing meta and title tags. Create body elements. Add background color in a Web page. Add horizontal line in the Web page. Create paragraphs and line break. Present emphasized and strong text. Create nested tags. Create ordered, unordered and definition lists. Create headers in a Web page. View web pages in a browser. Validate Web pages using a Validator tool. 3 What is XHTML? XHTML stands for E X tensible H ypertext M arkup L anguage.

XHTML document or a Web page is a special text file saved with .htm or .html extension. To visit a web page, a user enters a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) in a browser. The browser locates the file, interprets the markups contained in the file, and displays the file in the browser window. There are several XHTML editors available in the market such as MS FrontPage, Adobe GoLive, and Macromedia DreamWeaver. These tools can quickly generate Web pages. The purpose of this book is not to teach you those tools but to explain the code involved in XHTML. Creating a Web Page using Notepad You will create your first web page using Notepad. To open Notepad, click on the Start button on the Windows toolbar, by pointing to All Programs (if running Windows XP) or to Programs (if you are running Windows 2000), by selecting Accessories option on the All Programs or Programs menu, and by selecting the Notepad option on the subsequent submenu.
