Finishing Up & Posting
Your Page on the Web
When You Are Finished:
Once you've made your web pages, copy (or save) your
pages onto a 3.5 inch IBM-formatted floppy disk. Turn in the disk
to Dr. Tallant, who will post the files on the web server.
Key points to remember:
- In saving your files to a floppy disk, you
should use "8.3 file names." These are file
names with eight characters before the period and three characters
after it. The reason for this is that not all web servers recognize
file names longer than this.
- In creating names for your files, do not
include spaces or any punctuation marks within the file name
(except the single period between the first eight characters and
the last three). Again, many servers do not recognize punctuation
marks in file names.
- When you are making hyperlinks to your
files on your web page, remember to use 8.3 file names in links.
- When you are copying your files onto the floppy
disk, remember to copy all files your page needs,
not just the HTML pages. If you use any graphics or other media
(such as MIDI sounds) on your page, these are stored as separate
files. A web page with three pictures, a background pattern, five
graphical bullets, and four buttons to used to link to other pages
is actually 14 separate files: one HTML file and 13 graphics files.
