Objectives

  • Add comments and horizontal rules to a web page.
  • Use comments effectively in a web page.

  • Use the target attribute to open web pages in a new browser window.

Instructions

  1. Open the XHTML document you created in Headings, Paragraphs, and Lists.
  2. Add two line breaks at the end of each paragraph. The line breaks should be after the text but with the <p></p> tags. On a new line, make a link to another web page where the user can find more information on what you wrote about.
  3. At least one of the links should open in a new window.
  4. Add a horizontal rule after each paragraph. The width should be something less than 100%.
