Here are some things to try out to test you
- Make an
index.html file in your
public_html directory. Put some appropriate filler
there. This could end up as your homepage, or you could just
make it note about where to look for the good stuff. Either
way, give it a whirl.
- OK, now make a homepage for yourself. It needn't be fancy or
complete, but put something up. I'd suggest putting your name,
some contact information (a
mailto: link is highly
recommended!), and maybe a short biography of you.
- Make a page for your favorite links. Link it in to your
homepage. Check the links to make sure that they work!
- Now it's time to play a bit. Go to this archive of backgrounds
and pick a few out. Try some of them with your homepage (or
another page you've written). Now try playing with the colors
of the text (including links and viewed links). What you're
looking for here is something that is legible and also
hopefully not painful to the reader's brains. (I can suggest
some color combinations that have quite enough contrast but tend
to cause brain hemorrhages for sheer lack of color coordination.)
