accessed from this start-page as sub-topics. It is up to you to determine the structure, how many dierent levels you use and how they can be accessed. There should be a contact page where a visitor can contact you, by using a web-form that generates an email, an email-link, ... There should be at least some pictures, and links on other pages.

to use any graphical design environment that generates the code for you ! Your page should be static. However, you can make use of anything that runs within the browser (on the client side), like: javascript, ash etc.. However, you should be able to explain the code that you use (javascript, ash, ...) and not make a page completely based on Flash !

Your website should work in Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox. Do not use copyrighted material, anything on the page should be your own creation. Since the web-site is static you can do most of the testing on the machine you work on, but there will be a web-server provided later on during this term. Exact details of how to access it and use it will follow in due time. The website should be uploaded to the server by WEEK 13 : Monday 10/12/2012, 08:00 AM.
