- There's some confusion about the 20px margin between reviewer quotes; students are seeing margins that look more like 10px and are asking where those margins came from. The writeup wasn't worded very clearly; it should say that there's a 20px bottom margin underneath the critic's personal information such as "Peter Debruge, Variety". Other miscellaneous smaller margins (around 1em or 10px) that you see around the document are just default top/bottom margins on paragraphs. These were implicitly set by the browser and not by my CSS.
- My expected output had an unspecified 2em bottom margin underneath the "fresh" or "rotten" tomato images next to each critic's review. This caused the text not to wrap underneath these images for a few lines (though in the majors-only expected output image, the critic quotes take up more lines, so they eventually did wrap under the image, which looked odd). Since this 2em margin wasn't in the spec, I've removed it from my solution and updated the expected output image to reflect this. Now the text wraps directly under these images. You may choose to match either the old output or the new one; we'll accept either.
- There's some text about a "copyright notice" near the end of the HW2 writeup. This shouldn't have been there; there's no copyright notice in the assignment.
A few students have asked what's up with the
dd tags in the skeleton. These tags form something called a "definition list". A definition list (dl) shows a set of terms (dt) and definitions or more info about those terms (dd). It's good when you have many small heading-like "terms" and want to say a little bit about each of them, as we do in that right-side pane on HW2.
It raises the question of, why did we put this tag into HW2 when it hasn't been shown in class? I probably shouldn't include many things on assignments that we haven't covered in lecture, but in this case I wanted to introduce a few new tags. The following two sites talk a little more about definition lists:
- Some students have asked what URL path to use when linking to images in your XHTML / CSS code. You should use the full absolute path as stated on the HW2 spec, not a relative path or a path on Webster.
