Power Tools for Technical Communication:
Copying Web Graphics


In this lab, you copy images from the Web using any of the techniques discussed in Chapter 11 of Power Tools for Technical Communication. To be ready for this project, you need to have have studied Chapter 17 in Power Tools for Technical Communication and have done at least one other web-page formatting project:
  1. Using a simple text editor or web-page editor of your choice, create a simple web page like the one shown in Chapter 17 entitled My First Web Page. Between the <TITLE> and </TITLE> tags and between the <H1> and </H1> tags, substitute Copying Web Graphics: Practice.
  2. For each item, copy the image from the web page and save it on your computer.
  3. Add the correct HTML tags so that the image you just copied will display in the web page you just started.
  4. Put your name, Copying Web Graphics: Web Page, and the date on this document, and print it out for your instructor.
