Election Day Tuesday, finally it's over (well, unless it's like the year 2000, then it went on and on and on...)

We will not meet on Monday, but we will Wednesday and Thursday.  Time to get into some HTML, CSS and more for web development.

Finish Lesson 1 of the Udacity tutorial on Wednesday, and you will have a simple, but very real HTML and CSS written webpage.  You can use your own content/information and your own picture for the exercises, but let's make sure we understand the purpose of "boxes", the function of HTML, and how CSS can give your webpages their appearance.

One thing you will notice about the tutorials, they assume you know nothing.  If it seems like they did something, but you did it wrong, keep going.  They can be tricky!

Your web page development on Wednesday will be a class grade, and on Friday you will be quizzed on it!  I will NOT take the assignment from Wednesday late, so at least give me partial credit!   I hope you like this as much as I do, it's fun stuff, AND a potential job!

(Did I mention, I won't be there Wednesday.  I am at a meeting trying to help save hundreds of thousands of kids: )  Help each other do the assignment, don't be a lazy American kid, be successful!
