General Tips

  • After you make major changes to a web page, revalidate it. You can use the W3C validator: http://validator.w3.org/. If your page does not pass (and you get errors), then there is something wrong with your code. Your page may still look OK, but you should really make sure it validates.
  • If you get the 404 Not Found error, then that means you typed the URL wrong, or the page doesn't exist.
  • If you get the 403 Forbidden error, then that means the permissions of your file is wrong. For most types of files (shtml, pdf, ss), the file should be at least owner, group, and world readable. For php files, group and others do not need read permissions.
  • Make sure all links work.
  • Pick the best way to present information. Just because previous tutors used a particular form of presentation doesn't mean you have to. Be creative and think, "How can I present the information so that it's most accessible and useful?". You can use tables, charts, bullets, etc.
