Wir alle lernen früher oder später einen Brief zu schreiben; es ist auch ein nützliches Beispiel, um unsere Textformatierungsfähigkeiten zu testen! Sie erhalten einen Brief, mit dem Sie grundlegende und fortgeschrittene HTML-Formatierungsmöglichkeiten, einschließlich Hyperlinks, testen können und wir werden Ihre Vertrautheit mit einigen HTML <head> Inhalten testen.

Vorwissen: Bevor Sie diese Überprüfung durchführen, sollten Sie bereits Lernen Sie HTML kennen, Was gehört in den Kopf? Metadaten in HTML, Einfache Textformatierung mit HTML, Erstellen von Links, und Fortgeschrittene Textformatierung durchgearbeitet haben.
Ziel: Grundlegende und fortgeschrittene HTML-Textformatierung und Hyperlink-Fähigkeiten testen und wissen, was in den HTML <head> gehört.


To get this assessment started, you should go and grab the raw text you need to mark up, and the CSS you need to include in your HTML. Create a new .html file using your text editor to do your work in (or alternatively use a site like JSBin or Thimble to do your assessment.)

Project brief

For this project, your task is to mark up a letter that needs to be hosted on a university intranet. The letter is a response from a research fellow to a prospective PhD student concerning their application to work at the university.

Block/structural semantics:

  • You should structure the overall document with an appropriate structure including doctype, and <html>, <head> and <body> elements.
  • The letter in general should be marked up with a structure of paragraphs and headings, with the exception of the below points. There is one top level heading (the "Re:" line) and three second level headings.
  • The semester start dates, study subjects and exotic dances should be marked up using an appropriate list type.
  • The two addresses can just be put inside paragraphs. The <address> element is not appropriate for them — think about why. In addition, each line of the addresses should sit on a new line, but not be in a new paragraph.

Inline semantics:

  • The names of the sender and receiver (and "Tel" and "Email") should be marked up with strong importance.
  • The four dates in the document should be given appropriate elements containing machine-readable dates.
  • The first address and first date in the letter should be given a class attribute value of "sender-column"; the CSS you'll add later will then cause these to be right aligned, as should be the case in a classic letter layout.
  • The five acronyms/abbreviations in the main text of the letter should be marked up to provide expansions of each acronym/abbreviation.
  • The six sub/superscripts should be marked up appropriately — in the chemical formulae,  and the numbers 103 and 104 (they should be 10 to the power or 3 and 4, respectively).
  • The degree symbols and multiply symbols should be marked up using appropriate entity references.
  • Try to mark up at least two appropriate words in the text with strong importance/emphasis.
  • There are two places where a hyperlink should be added; add appropriate links with titles. For the location that the links point to, just use
  • The university motto quote and citation should be marked up with appropriate elements.

The head of the document:

  • The character set of the document should be specified as utf-8 using an appropriate meta tag.
  • The author of the letter should be specified in an appropriate meta tag.
  • The provided CSS should be included inside an appropriate tag.

Hints and tips

  • Use the W3C HTML validator to validate your HTML; you'll get bonus points if it validates.
  • You don't need to know any CSS to do this assessment; you just need to put the provided CSS inside an HTML element.


The following screenshot shows an example of what the letter might look like after being marked up.



If you are following this assessment as part of an organized course, you should be able to give your work to your teacher/mentor for marking. If you are self-learning, then you can get the marking guide fairly easily by asking on the discussion thread about this exercise, or in the #mdn IRC channel on Mozilla IRC. Try the exercise first — there is nothing to be gained by cheating!
