Prepare one complete sample product
description page (this will be one of the three linear pages) for the business you
have chosen. It should show clearly how your product pages will look, once the
site is finished.
Your product description page should validate either HTML strict or HTML
transitionally. (URL - you should not need to use the extended
interface to validate your pages.)
It should be laid out so that it can be viewed with a resolution of 800 X 600.
Your page should contain the following:
a. Table layout for the entire page (page has to be viewable in
b. Table of contents with links to parts within the same page
including the following:
i. Product name and catalogue number
ii. Image of the product
iii. Product description, at least 10 lines of HTML code.
iv. Email link to recommend this product to a friend (email to
you, not any of the staff).
c. Links to external web-sites about relevant information such as good
reviews of this product, or recommendations from past customers,
anything that an interested prospective customer may find useful.
The content of the product maybe fictitious but should be relevant and consistent.
Your page must contain at least 2 (relevant) working external links.
Some important considerations while designing your web pages:
1. The page must contain a table of content linking to its corresponding content
2. Use tables for layout
3. Use uniform fonts and professional looking headings and sub-headings
4. Use a sensible colour scheme and web safe colours
Keep your page simple and succinct. You should have a maximum of 2 HTML
Frames are not to be used .
Use of HTML editors, such as Dreamweaver, is strictly prohibited. All coding should be
done with a plain text editor.
The second part of your assignment is to prepare a design document for the
implementation of a professional website for the chosen small business in your
geographical region. Read about the business and the specification below. The design document needs to include the following:
o A brief introduction covering:
Goals of the website (at least 4)
Possible intended audiences of the website (at least 4)
o A graphical depiction of the complete structure of your intended site
that takes into consideration the nature of 2 different languages
(English and one other language) that are required. This structure
needs to have all links shown from one page to another.
o The equivalent directory structure you will be using on your
o A detailed description of the type of site structure you have decided
to use and why you have done so. Justify your decision by pointing
out the advantages and disadvantages compared to other site
structures that are available for web development.
