HTML and CSS Reference
See Chapter 2 for an introduction to the Prime Properties Case Study. Figure 2.38
shows a site map for the Prime Properties Web site. The pages were created in earlier
chapters. In this case study you will implement a new two-column CSS page layout for
Prime Properties. You will modify the external style sheet and the Home, Listings, and
Financing pages. Unless your instructor directs you otherwise, use the Chapter 4 Prime
Properties Web site as a starting point for this case study.
Figure 6.32 displays a wireframe for the two-column page layout with a page wrapper,
logo, left column, right column, and footer areas.
