Lab 8 - February 13


To receive credit for this lab assignment, you must be finished by Thursday, February 13, at 10:00 p.m.  After this time you will not receive any credit.



1.  Login to UNIX, and do the following:

Create 4 web pages:

one with a red background, white font
one with a green background, black font
one with a blue background, yellow font
one with a background color that they have mixed themselves

(you should modify the background color tag)

As an example, the following code displays a red-background web page with white font:


<title>ICS111 color page</title>

<body bgcolor="#FF0000">
<p><font color="#FFFFFF">RED BACKGROUND</font></p>


You will need to experiment a little to get your yellow font to show up since it is not a predefined color.

Note:  We are doing this because we just learned RGB, and you will eventually need your webpage for applets :-)

2.  Send an e-mail in Pine (Getting Started with Pine, PDF) and send links (including the http://) to all four of the web pages in the e-mail body to the account. 

3.  Check the webpage to make sure that the e-mail arrived.  Here is the URL:

4.  Once I (TA) get the e-mail in my account AND I can verify it on the web, you will receive your lab participation point.
