This is an Individual Assignment. All work must be your own. Submissions are automatically  checked for similarities. Unexplained similarities may constitute plagiarism. Carefully read the  section on plagiarism in the Unit Outline before you proceed (including the section forbidding  sharing your work with others). 


This individual assignment will familiarise you with the techniques and skills involved in designing  and creating static webpages utilising validated HTML and CSS created with a standard text editor. You will deploy these Web pages on a Unix / Apache server. This should be done in a way  that keeps HTML content and CSS presentation separate, as discussed in the lectures. No JavaScript is to be used in this part of the assignment we will use JS in Part 2. 

Essential Requirements 


An IT company wants to develop a website that will enable it to advertise vacant positions. These  have a ‘position description’ that sets out the qualifications, skills and knowledge required. Potential  applicants for the position will be able to submit an online form to apply for a position.  

In this assignment you will develop a prototype of this website. The website you develop will  consist of the following Web pages, accessible from a common menu on each page: 

  • Home page with details of the company (index.html) 
  • A page of job descriptions (jobs.html) 
  • A job application page (apply.html) 
  • A page with your personal details (about.html) A page which lists any enhancements 

you have made (enhancements.html) 

You will also include 

  • A CSS file that styles your website (style.css)

You must call these files  exactly by these names,  otherwise the marking  program will not know  they exist!

The essential requirements for this assignment are listed in the marking guide. In general the web  pages must: 

  • have relevant content 
  • must include the HTML markup specified in the marking guide  
  • must validate to HTML5 without errors  
  • must be styled by a validated CSS3 file  
  • must be linked to each other via a menu 
  • must be deployed on Mercury.  

All web pages in your website should have a consistent layout and navigation. Where “in-house”  templates have been defined in this unit (e.g. for meta-data; tables; etc.) these should be followed.  These include accessibility alternatives.  

The HTML in your Web pages must validate against the W3C HTML5 validator  ( .  

Pages should not contain any deprecated elements/attributes (e.g. , ). Do not use iframe  elements in your assignment. 

Note: Generic structural elements like div or span should only be used where there is no more  meaningful HTML5 element (e.g. section) that is appropriate. 

  1. Home page (index.html) 

This page should contain appropriate title, a description and graphic related to the company. It is up  to you to make up the details of the company that is advertising the jobs. It should contain a menu  that links to the other pages on your Web site. This same menu should be in every page of your  website with an email link to your student email. 

  1. Position Descriptions page (jobs.html) 

You need to write a web page with at least 2 position descriptions. For one of these your tutor will  allocate you a job title from the IT industry. For the second position, the choice of IT job type is  entirely up to you. Why not write a position for the ideal job you would like to do? Be as imaginative  as you like.  

The HTML on this page must contain: 

  • Hierarchically structured headings of at least 2 levels 
  • More than one
  • Anwith appropriate content
  • At least one ordered list 
  • At least one unordered list 
  • The page should also have an appropriate footer. 

Your job descriptions should be concise but as a minimum include : 

  • Company’s position description reference number (5 alphanumeric characters) Position title  
  • Brief description of the position 
  • Salary range 
  • The title of the position to whom the successful applicant will report  
  • Key responsibilities. A list of the specific tasks that are to be performed
  • Required qualifications, skills, knowledge and attributes. These should be divided into  “essential” and “preferable”. These requirements should include such things as  programming languages required, number-of-years of experience required, etc.. 

The content of the job description should be appropriately structured with headings, sections,  subsections, lists etc. using the appropriate HTML elements.  

Sources / References: 

• You can use material from other websites but the source of all material must be  acknowledged. This acknowledgement should be immediately after the material  and include a hyperlinked URL to the original source. The text of the hyperlink  reference can be a short name but the hyperlink must work. 

• If you are unsure of what is contained in a position description there are many  resources on the web. Here is one: job-description/

  1. Job application page (apply.html) 

This page has a form that allows a potential candidate to register their interest in the advertised  position. HTML5 data validation should be used to check the user’s input. 

The form will allow a potential applicant to fill in the following: 

Field  Format requirement
Job reference number  exactly 5 alphanumeric characters
First name  max 20 alpha characters
Last name  max 20 alpha characters
Date of birth  dd/mm/yyyy 
Gender  radio inputs grouped using a fieldset and legend
Street Address  max 40 characters
Suburb/town  max 40 characters
State  drop down selection from  


Postcode  exactly 4 digits
Email address  validate format
Phone number  8 to 12 digits, or spaces
Skill list – the last item in list  should read “Other skills…”  checkbox inputs
Other skills  textarea

All inputs should have labels. All form values, except the comment textarea are ‘required’ or have  a default value (e.g. select and checkbox inputs). The user should not be able to submit the form  if any of these required fields are blank. 

Data Submission to Server 

The form should have a submit button labelled “Apply”. When this button is clicked the name values from the associated form should be sent to the server using the post http method. The  server action address is The server will then  just echo back the name value pairs to the client. While nothing will be stored on the server in  this part of the assignment (we will do this in Part 3) this will allow the form submission to be  tested. 

  1. A page about you (about.html) 

This page will contain information on the following: 

Information  HTML element to be used
Your name  Definition list
Student number  Definition list
Your tutor’s name  Definition list
Course you are doing  Definition list
Photo of you < 100k  HTML figure element
Your Swinburne timetable  HTML table
A mailto link to your student email.

It could also include personal profile, such as resume, interests, or information that is related to  you. This extra information gives you an opportunity to extend the techniques you apply in your  assignment, and could include: 

  • Demographic information about you 
  • Description of hometown 
  • A list of your favourite books, music, films etc. 
  1. CSS Requirements 

No style markup should be included in your HTML file. 

The pages in your website must be styled with CSS and have a consistent ‘look and feel’, particularly  common elements such as menus, headers and footers. While the emphasis is this assignment is on  the appropriate application of techniques rather than graphic design, your pages should follow  basic usability / accessibility principles, e.g. distinguishable foreground and background colours, and  font readability, etc.  

Create your own design and implement it using one single external stylesheet that applies to all your Web pages. This file should be named style.css and placed in a styles folder on the server.  The stylesheet should style the common elements on all your web pages, and address the following  specific style requirements. 

  1. Comments: The CSS should include comments at the beginning of the CSS file to identify  author and purpose. Individual line comments should be used as necessary to explain  particular styles and explain where they are applied. 
  2. Selectors: All the following CSS Selectors should be used appropriately at some point in this  assignment: 
  • element, #id, .class, grouping, contextual 
  • pseudo class, pseudo element  
  1. Menu: The menu should have its own set of styles applied. Use a background colour. 4.
  2. Index Page: Demonstrated the following specific CSS rules on the index.html page: display a background graphic. 
  3. Position Descriptions Page: Demonstrated the following specific CSS rules on the jobs.html page:                     • The footer should cover the full width of the page the footer text should be in a  small font and centred in the footer..  
  1. About Page: Demonstrated the following specific CSS rules on the about.html page:
  • Style the definition list so that eachis on the left and theon the right in a  single line. Set the dt to have a common width. 
  • The photo should be styled with a single border using the short-hand border property, and the figure should be floated to the right of the definition list 

  • should be centred within the section, headings in bold, table cells with a  background colour specified in hexadecimal format
  • The email should be style similarly to the definition list. 
  1. All pages: should have a fluid layout (the page should “Reflow” on page resize). 

Other CSS selectors and pro perties can be used as necessary and appropriate for the  presentation 

Do not include any proprietary CSS mark-up, such as –moz- or –webkit etc.

Hint: CSS validators will validate against a particular version of CSS e.g. CSS2.1 or 3. This assignment  should be valid CSS2.1 or CSS3. Make sure that you are checking your CSS using the correct version  of the validator. For example, if you include CSS3 markup and validate as CSS2.1 it will show errors.  (Best to pre-set the version in the Web Developer tools – see the note on Blackboard).


Note: Make sure you get all the basics working first before you attempt any enhancements.  See the marking Guide below.  

The technologies for developing Web applications are rapidly changing. One of the key skills you will  need is finding out about these new techniques and applying them. When researching, look at the  reliable websites such as the External Links provided on Blackboard. This assessment gives you an  opportunity to demonstrate your ability to implement features/techniques that go beyond the  specified requirements above. It also provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate your ability to  discover techniques from a range of sources and apply them in a standards compliant manner.  

These enhancements need to be implemented within the required web pages (index.html,  product.html, enquire.html, about.html). The extra feature needs to enhance your web site in a  meaningful and relevant way.  

List and describe each enhancement implemented on the separate enhancements.html page, and  describe how you have significantly extended the basic HTML and CSS beyond the lecture and  tutorials. Hyperlink from this list to where the feature is implemented in your Web site. If it is a CSS feature, hyperlink to an example of the html that is selected by the CSS rule. For each enhancement feature briefly explain:  

how it goes beyond the basic requirements of the assignment 

what code is needed to implement the feature  

the references to any third party sources for the technique, (e.g. URL) must be cited. a hyperlink to where you have applied that extension in your Web site 

(this is needed so the tutor can quickly assess your enhancements during the  demonstration). 

All enhancements must be able to run on Firefox. Make sure you check this. 

A maximum of 2 enhancements will be assessed (up to 10 marks each). Examples of HTML/CSS  enhancements you might make that will contribute a high distinction mark include:  Effective, appropriate and innovative use of a number of distinct HTML elements not covered  in tutorials (e.g. Image maps, Canvas, etc) used in a way that improves the user experience of  the website. 

  • A number of additional CSS properties or selectors (e.g. support for interactivity, animation)  not covered in the tutorials. For example the use of a range CSS3 pseudo-elements and classes,  child or siblings combinators, attribute selectors, etc. (e.g. use the CSS3 :target selector to help  us see where you have applied your enhancements.)  
  • Implement Responsive Design with additional CSS that presents your website specifically for  mobile phone / tablet sized displays. 

Discuss your proposed enhancements with you tutor before you implement them.  The number of marks you receive for an enhancement will be at the sole discretion of your  tutor/marker. As a guide if the enhancement has only taken a couple of lines of code it is likely to  be trivial. 

  • Be relevant to / enhance the content of the website 
  • Be well described (as explained above) 
  • Be non-trivial.  
  • Be significantly different from other features you have implemented.  

Note: Do not include JavaScript in this part of the assignment. This will be covered in Part 2.

Web Site Folder Structure and Deployment  

The directory structure of your website is described below. You can create additional HTML files for  your content (depending on what your content requires), but the following is needed: 

assign1/ You must have this folder – case sensitive






 …other html pages 

 images/ Folder for images for your page content 

 styles/ Folder for style.css other css files 

 styles/images/ Folder for images referred to by your css files e.g. background


  • HTML files should only be in the base “assign1/” folder – not anywhere else. All images used for the content should be stored in the “assign1/images/” folder.  All images used for the style should be stored in the “assign1/styles/images/” folder.  There should be a “style.css” file in the “assign1/styles/” folder. 
  • All links to your files (CSS or images) should be relative. Do not use absolute links, as  these links will be broken when files are transferred for marking. No marks will be  allocated if links are broken. 


Make sure you thoroughly test your website deployment on the mercury server.

Assignment Submission (Canvas + Mercury) 

Your assignment should be uploaded to Mercury on or before your deadline.  

An electronic copy of your assignment should be submitted through Canvas on or before your  deadline. 

  • Make sure all your files are in the correct folders and compress your root folder with all your  sub-folders with HTML, CSS, and images into a zip file named “”. Submit this to  Canvas. When the zip file is decompressed, the entire website should be able to be run from  index.html without needing to move any files. 
  • You can submit more than once through Canvas. Your last submission will be marked. Note that all deliverables must be submitted electronically. There is no need to submit an  assignment cover sheet.
