Navigation Links in a List
Each of the following case studies continues throughout most of the text. This chapter
configures the main navigation in your Web sites to utilize an unordered list.
JavaJam Coffee House
See Chapter 2 for an introduction to the JavaJam Coffee House Case Study. Figure 2.26
shows a site map for the JavaJam Web site. The pages were created in earlier chapters.
You will use the existing Web site in the javajamcss folder (unless your instructor speci-
fies otherwise) as a start and create a new version that configures the main navigation
using an unordered list.
Hands-On Practice Case
1. Review Section 7.2 CSS Pseudo-classes and Links and Section 7.3 CSS Navigation
Layout using Lists.
2. Modify the javajam.css file as needed to configure the main navigation links in an
unordered list without “bullets”. Also configure the main navigation links to
change color when a mouse hovers over them.
3. Modify the index.html, menu.html, and music.html Web pages to display the
main navigation links in an unordered list.
4. Launch a browser and test the pages in the javajamcss folder. Modify your java.css
file as needed to configure your pages. Be sure to test in more than one browser.
