Duration: 3 Hours—————————-Total Marks: 30

1. Hands on Experience————15

A website based on a particular topic has to be to be developed by each student using various commands covered in HTML and PHP with at least 4 web pages.
Web page should be designed with following features:
 HTML basic tags (html/head/title/body/B/I/U/BR/HR)
 Functions
 Conditional and control statements
 Form Handling, Form Validation, E-mail Validation
 Image editing using Photo Shop /Corel draw/GIMP
 Merging layers /Moving and copying layers
 Use of multimedia authoring (like Macromedia Flash)

2. Practical File ————05

The practical file should be made on a domain specific area (with supported documents and printouts):
 Make a simple web page containing almost all the tags of HTML and view that web page on the browser.
 Develop a home page for income tax department (simple and textual) and store it in the directory used for web services on the web-server.
