To Do

Because the example for this hour involves interactive animation, it's easier to see how everything works if you have the actual page on your computer, instead of just the static pictures in this book. I therefore recommend that you download the sample files from the 24-Hour HTML Café before you continue reading. Here's how:

  • If you don't already own version 4 or later of Netscape Navigator (for Windows PCs or the Macintosh) or version 4 or later of Microsoft Internet Explorer (for Windows only), go to Netscape at http://home.netscape.com or Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/ie/ and follow the instructions for downloading and installing the latest browser version.

  • Start your Web browser and go to the 24-Hour HTML Café at http://www.24hourHTMLcafe.com/hour19.

  • Under The XYZ Files example, you will see a list of seven filenames. If you are using Netscape, use the right mouse button (or hold down the button if you're using a Macintosh) to click each of these, choosing Save Link As from the pop-up menu each time. Choose Save Target As if you are using IE. Save all seven files in the same folder on your hard drive.

    (The files are xyfiles.htm, slide.js, nodhtml.htm, xfolder.gif, yfolder.gif, zfolder.gif, and empty.gif. The last of these GIF images is invisible, so don't worry if you try to look at it after saving and don't see anything. You also might not see anything if you try to view slide.js with a Web browser.)

    After you have those seven files on your hard drive, you can use your favorite text editor and Web browser to look at them (and, if you're bold, modify them to work with your own graphics and text) as you read the rest of this hour.
