Assignment (due February 3): Create a home page in html5

Hey folks,

Below is your first coding assignment! It's due by end of day Monday, February 3.


  • Create a short home page for yourself in HTML5 alone.

  • Don't use any CSS, or any tags that control appearance (we'll do this later).
  • Your page should be contained in one html file.
  • Your content should be suitable for use in a classroom context.

  • Validate your page using the W3C Nu Markup Validation Service Address as many of the resulting warnings and errors as you can.
  • Test your page on various browsers ("crossbrowser testing") using Browserling, Browsera, BrowserStack or SauceLabs. These tools make it easy to see how a page is rendered in different browsers without actually running those browsers. Test at least half of the following browsers:
    • Firefox for Windows
    • Firefox for OS X
    • Chrome for Windows
    • Chrome for OS X
    • Chrome for Android
    • Internet Explorer for Windows
    • Safari for OS X
    • Safari for iOS

  • Using wolfware classic assignment "html", submit the following as a single zip file by end of day Monday February 3:
    • Your version of the homepage HTML5 source.
    • A text file of 1-2 pages documenting the results of your validation including any remaining errors and warnings, and your summary of the results of crossbrowser testing.
  • (Optional) post your impressions of the crossbrowser testing tool you used to our forum for extra credit.
