Show: Generic Computing home | Assessment Support Materials home

The web design standards fall into two groups:

25656, 25657, 25657: These standards focus more on the requirement to use specific HTML tags in the construction of the web pages.

18734, 25655 and 25658: these standards use web authoring tools and are more open-ended.

The progression between these standards is shown in the following table:

A web-authoring tool is a piece of software capable of creating HTML code for web pages, usually on a WYSIWYG basis. The user needs no knowledge of HTML as long as the software can save the file in HTML format. More complex sites can be created using software such as Frontpage tm or Dreamweaver tm or there is a great deal of other software, much of it shareware or freeware, to do this job.

As part of the testing process the website must be opened in a minimum of two browsers for different platforms.
