Your goal for this assignment is to make a similar webpage about yourself. NOTE: This is a problem solving assignment so you before asking questions t ry to figure it out using online search as a resource or the Blackboard Discussion Board for questions. 2. View the HTML for this page by clicking on View Source (in Internet Explorer). The commands are different depending on the browser you use. In Firefox, click View Page Source.

For more help with HTML tags, visit http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_intro.asp . 3. Copy the HTML code from the sample page.

NOTE: DO NOT use M icrosoft Word or any other word processing software to complete this assignment. Word leaves behind LOTS of code that you dont need. T rust me; I will be able to tell if you used Word. If you use Word for this assignment, you will automatically lose 10 points. 5. Paste the code from the sample website into your text editor. Try using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V for paste. 1 6.
