8. tables – summary & 9. forms

There are many minor coding errors – mis-matched tag pairs, element open and close tags not nested properly, duplicate elements, and elements in the wrong page section. Although the browsers usually figure out most of these “errors” please be more careful about the positioning of elements within your code.

8. Tables – Required elements: table, tr, th, td, border, width, height, margin, padding, float, text-align, background-color, class, colspan, rowspan, thead, tfoot, tbody, colgroup, style

Check use of tags within table element,
The <tbody> tag must be used in the following context: As a child of a <table> element, after any <caption>, <colgroup>, and <thead> elements.

colgroup – specifies a group of one or more columns in a table for formatting. Useful for applying styles to entire columns, instead of repeating the styles for each cell, for each row. Use with the col tag. There were a number of problems with this one. It can be handy if you style columns separately within your table.

Basics, comments – Great to see improvement in basic page section tags, title and .css files. Include comments in your code. Get into the habit of documenting your code.

Please limit the code in the assignment page to the work for the current assignment Some pages continue to grow as each new assignment is added. With all the additional information it is difficult to find the code to grade for this assignment.

  • Use the Remix feature to create a new page for each assignment. Remix makes a copy of the page so your can easily delete the assignment code but keep all the .css and page basics.

Late work may accepted for partial credit. It depends on the activity and how late it is.

  • Please check your grades now. If you are missing grades, check that you submitted the assignment and/or discussion activity post.
  • Coding assignments must be posted in the Discussion AND submitted as an Assignment.

9. forms

This is the last of the coding topic modules. Once you have completed this one, you have covered all the basics of web development.


There is still plenty to learn. Next you will be putting everything together to demonstrate your expertise in a more realistic display. Look ahead at the remaining modules to see what is expected. While this is more like a “real” web site, you need to demonstrate everything we have covered and more.
