The purpose of this project is to begin incorporating color, graphics, and other visual elements in your webpages by implementing the HTML5 and CSS3 code discussed in chapters 3 and 4.


For Website Project 2, you will be creating an external style sheet to style the three HTML pages from Web Site Project 1. Embedded styles, inline styles, and phrase elements should NOT be used to style the pages. You will also be using Google Fonts for typefaces and Adobe Color CC to create a color scheme (see the Creating Color Schemes Using Adobe Color CC page in Canvas Midterm Module).

To begin the project, make a copy of your HTML files from Website Project 1 and save them in another location in order to avoid losing the code from your original project.


Your web page must demonstrate effective use of the basic HTML5 and CSS3 code from chapters 2 4 by following the requirements below. The page should be structured using one of the wireframe examples on the next page.

HTML Pages

 In the head section of each page,·

o add <link elements to

 link the external CSS§

 include the href and rel attributes·

 link at least two typefaces from Google Fonts§

 you can choose to code each typeface in one link element or separate link·


 note that in some cases, Google Fonts will have you insert “+” symbols in·

the code, which may cause validation errors; this the only acceptable validation error

o Change the title element on each page to display Website Project 2

 In the body section of each page, remove all phrase elements, type attributes, and align attributes·

 all styling must be coded using external CSS of include§

 the heading 1 element for main headings§

 the heading 2 element for secondary headings, and if desired, heading 3 – 6§

elements for subheadings

 site navigation links (one link for each page) using the anchor element§

 the paragraph element and blockquote element§

 at least one (1) of each should be used, but not necessarily on every page·

 unordered, ordered, and description lists§

 at least one (1) of each should be used, but not necessarily on every page·

 an image element to display one (1) image per page§

 must include the src and alt attributes·

 structural elements§

 header, nav, main, and footer·

 at least two (2) other div elements must be coded within the main element to contain sections of content·

 an email link and copyright information in the footer section§

External Style Sheet

 Use the following CSS properties to style the website of background color and color properties·

 at least three (3) colors other than black and white should be used of font-family property§

 specify one (1) font other than the default for the entire body section and at least§

one (1) font other than the default for special use (like headings) of margin, width, and padding properties  to center the main content on the page and to provide space between content, borders, and adjacent elements of text-align property of text-shadow §

 style the main heading only of text-decoration property§

 remove the underline from all links of font-style and font-weight §

 provide contrasting text sizes of border property§

 add a border around the content images of border-top and border-bottom properties§

 create a border between the main content area and header/footer sections§

Please use the screen shots below for an example of how your site might display; this will help you determine how to code the underlying structure and styling of your pages (images are also available to view in Canvas).
