In order to tackle this assignment, the assignment being to replicate a PDF file that’s similar to what is shown in the picture, I needed very little outside resources. However, we had a webpage already set up as an exploration of the different HTML tags and a sheet of paper that we used to take notes on what each did precisely. By paying close attention to what I had discovered the tags to do and applying them each to the webpage I was able to recreate the page.
Though it was easy enough to go through and match the look as I went from the top of the page to the bottom, I did come across one tag that gave me difficulty. The <br/> tag. I have blogged before with HTML and so I understood the magic of the break tag, but I hadn’t quite needed to manipulate it like I had here. Through guess and check though I found out how to make the ingredient list properly spaced out in accordance to its original format.
I don’t have many questions about HTML or the tags we’ve learned, but I would like to be able to play around in this sort of format. Where I have a page I need to replicate since it gives me an end to work to.
After clarifying a few things I fixed up the webpage so that now it looks like the updated PDF file. These changes included removing the <br/> and replacing them with list commands.
