CSS Discussion

We will make an HTML page discussing CSS. It should be divided into sections. The first section will tell what CSS stands for and why the word "Cascading" is in the name. The second section will discuss the difference between presentation and structural markup, and the reasons for keeping them distinct. The third section will discuss the link tag and its use to invoke a stylesheet. The fourth section will contain a table listing the nine most common CSS attributes. That table will have three columns. The first column will list the CSS attributes to be enumerated. The second describes very briefly the function of the attribute, and the third column gives some possible values for the attribute in that row. The last section will discuss the difference between CSS padding and margin attributes.

The last test will take place at the final exam time on Tuesday, 12 December, from 1:30-3:30. It will be written as a one-hour (not 50 minute) exam, but you may have the full two hours for it. In other respects it will be very like the other tests, but comprehensive - it will emphasize Python, but cover all the topics we have seen. There is a Sample Exam, but be aware that things will have changed somewhat with the advent of ChatGPT.

The scores are posted on the Info tab at My.math. Notify the instructor of discrepancies immediately.
