Exercises for HTML and CSS lessons 1-3

HTML and CSS First website Exercises for HTML and CSS lessons 1-3

The following exercises will help you put your knowledge of web design (HTML/CSS) from previous lessons to the test. Try to solve them on your own, but know that you could always download the working solutions under the article. Nonetheless, beware that when you view the solution without solving the exercise, you won't learn anything :)

If you find yourself stuck at some point, you should always try going back to check previous tutorials first and figure the problem out by yourself.

Easy exercise

Create an HTML document using the proper structure, set the page title to "Blackbird" and insert the following text split into three paragraphs (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/…on_blackbird).

The text:

The common blackbird (Turdus merula) is a species of true thrush. It is also called Eurasian blackbird (especially in North America, to distinguish it from the unrelated New World blackbirds), or simply blackbird where this does not lead to confusion with a similar-looking local species. It breeds in Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, the Falkland Islands, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It has a number of subspecies across its large range; a few of the Asian subspecies are sometimes considered to be full species. Depending on latitude, the common blackbird may be resident, partially migratory, or fully migratory.

The male of the nominate subspecies, which is found throughout most of Europe, is all black except for a yellow eye-ring and bill and has a rich, melodious song; the adult female and juvenile have mainly dark brown plumage. This species breeds in woods and gardens, building a neat, mud-lined, cup-shaped nest. It is omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects, earthworms, berries, and fruits.

Both sexes are territorial on the breeding grounds, with distinctive threat displays, but are more gregarious during migration and in wintering areas. Pairs stay in their territory throughout the year where the climate is sufficiently temperate. This common and conspicuous species has given rise to a number of literary and cultural references, frequently related to its song.
