Creating a Web Page from Scratch
Web Page Design
As you create links
for the navigation
bar, you create new,
empty files. Later,
you’ll create a page
for each link.
Step 4: Add a footer
You’ve probably seen websites that show a copyright notice or other information,
each page (Figure 8-10 shows an example). Creating a footer lets you put the same,
boilerplate text at the bottom of each page in your site. Here’s how to do it:
1. Inthetable’s lastrow,selectthetwocellstotherightofthenavigationbar;
clickTableTools|Layout ➝ MergeCells(Alt,JL,M).
The two cells merge into one.
2. Typeyourcopyrightnoticeintothemergedcell: Copyright © 2010 Jane Smith .
If you want to include any other information at the bottom of every page,
include that, too. Choose a smaller font size than you plan to use for the page’s
main content: 8 or 10 points is about right.
3. SelectyourtextandpressCtrl+E(orselectHome ➝ CenterorAlt,H,AC).
Word centers your text within the cell.
Step 5: Save the page as a template
Now that you’ve got a layout for your website’s pages, you should save the design as
a template. Doing so lets you reuse the template whenever you create a new page for
your site, ensuring that all the pages on your site have a consistent look.
After all the hard work you’ve done laying out your page, saving it as a template
1. SelectFile ➝ SaveAs(Alt,F,A).
The familiar Save As dialog box opens.
