Now you have some headings, some text, some topics, and some links, which form the
basis for an excellent web page. With most of the content in place, now you need to con-
sider what other links you might want to create or what other features you might want to
add to this page.
For example, the introductory section has a note about the four cats owned by the book-
store. Although you didn't plan for them in the original organization, you could easily
create web pages describing each cat (and showing pictures) and then link them back to
this page, one link (and one page) per cat.
Is describing the cats important? As the designer of the page, that's up to you to decide.
You could link all kinds of things from this page if you have interesting reasons to link
them (and something to link to). Link the bookstore's address to an online mapping ser-
vice so that people can get driving directions. Link the quote to an online encyclopedia
of quotes. Link the note about free coffee to the Coffee home page.
I cover more good things to link (and how not to get carried away when you link) in
Lesson 18, “Writing Good Web Pages: Do's and Don'ts.” My reason for bringing up this
point here is that after you have some content in place on your web pages, there might be
opportunities for extending the pages and linking to other places that you didn't think of
when you created your original plan. So, when you're just about finished with a page,
stop and review what you have, both in the plan and on your web page.
For the purposes of this example, stop here and stick with the links you have. You're
close enough to being done, and I don't want to make this lesson any longer than it
Testing the Result Now that all the code is in place, you can preview the results in a
browser. Figures 7.16 through 7.19 show how it looks in a browser. Actually, these fig-
ures show what the page looks like after you fix the spelling errors, the forgotten closing
