The construction of this website was a huge undertaking, and required a large investment of time and effort on the part of our team. Building and coding the website was largely the responsibility of Victor, a 16-year-old from Long Island, who learned to write CSS and XHTML for this project, and constructed the banner image. He also wrote a portion of the site’s content. The remainder of the content and was written by Amy, Amanda, and Peter, all hailing from Long Island as well. The design of this website was a valuable and educational experience, and the team is thankful to have had this opportunity. Also deserving of thanks is Mr. Murphy, physics instructor at our high school, who afforded the team this opportunity and provided helpful guidance and advice on overcoming the various difficulties of web design.
This website uses valid XHTML 1.0 Strict. Valid HTML improves cross-browser compatability because each web browser will follow a strict set of rules in interpreting web code.
The website banner was created with the GNU Image Manipulation Program. The XHTML and CSS coding was done with a basic text editor, a web browser, and much experimentation and learning. The coding of this website would not have been possible without the aid of online tutorials and guides on creating HTML, XHTML, and CSS.
