10 A web page is simply a text file containing commands written in the hypertext markup language. When you visit a web page, your web browser first downloads the html file (along with any associated images, sounds, animations, videos, scripts, etc.), and then executes the instructions in the file. As long as you point your web browser to the correct location, it does not matter if the page is on the web or on a disk in your computer. The page will be displayed. OR

13 Tips to help you Avoid common problems:

14 Although programs like Microsoft Word, Publisher, and PowerPoint can be used to create web sites, they should be avoided because they often generate files that are difficult to edit. Instead, use a program like Microsoft FrontPage that is specifically designed to create web pages, and stick with that program.

15 When specifying the names of files and folders associated with your web site (or when creating links to these files and folders), avoid the use of capital letters, spaces, and punctuation marks. Simply use a short string of small letters and/or numbers to provide meaningful names for these items. IncorrectCorrect Index.htm horse.JPG my dog and cat pictures.htm dr. jones’ presentation made on 12/5/06.htm index.htm horse.jpg petpics.htm jp htm some examples:

16 To aid in the web page creation process and subsequent uploading of your site to the ISU web server, gather all of the images associated with your site into a single folder before starting to write your web page(s). images

17 There are a great many image file formats. Only a few of these, however, are suitable for posting on web pages. Acceptable image files are those with names ending in.gif,.jpg (or sometimes.jpeg), and.png extensions. If you wish to use images that are not in the correct file format, they must be converted into one of the above-mentioned formats.

18 Please create the “master copy” of your web site on one of the following types of media:

19 Out of the three choices just listed, it is recommended that you create the “master copy” of your site on a flash drive.

20 If you created your web site in a folder on your flash drive, DO NOT copy the folder containing your site to the ISU web server. Instead, simply copy the contents of the folder (i.e., the individual web pages and folder containing your images) to the server. This will result in a much shorter address for your web site. The WRONG way… The RIGHT way…

21 Another way to make the address of your web site as short as possible is to name the first page on your site index.htm. (Note that you do not need to type the.htm extension as Expression Web will insert it automatically.) index.htm

22 Just as a dog “instinctively” knows how to seek out food and distinguish it from other items in his environment,

23 web browsers like Internet Explorer are “programmed” to find web pages named index.htm and distinguish them from other pages on a web site. index.htm start.htm page1.htm

26 An excellent source of graphics for your web site can be found at: AND

27 The address of your web site will be: where “yourULID” is your ISU universal log-in ID (i.e., the part of your ISU address before sign)
