Create Your Float Layout

  1. Create a new lab10.html page and put some content into it. Put your lab10.html into your labs folder and link it to the CSS file you create in the next section. (Don't forget to put a link from your index.html page to your lab10.html page!)
  2. Create a new CSS page, name it lab10.css and put it in the CSS folder. Link from your lab10.html page to your new lab10.css page
  3. Plan a layout with at least four divs. Call them header, footer, content and navigation. Put some filler content in the divs
  4. Use floats (do not use the position property) to create a web page layout with two columns and a header and footer
  5. Once everything is working on your local copy of the website, upload the changed files to your lab site
  6. Don't forget to validate your HTML and CSS files - I'll be checking both!
  7. Don't forget to include meaningful comments in both HTML & CSS!

Advanced Lab

Design and create the layout as above, but with three columns plus a header and footer using floats. For full marks, be sure that your content and design are meaningful, and not simply filler.
