The Dean's Office and Department of Environmental Health webpages have been Bobby Certified.
Ms. Lenz showed the group the new digital camera that is available for check out from the InTech Lab.
Mr. Hadley made a presentation on creating Cascading Style Sheets, which are a common bridge among browsers. He explained that the purpose of style sheets is to provide assistance in the upkeep and maintenance of web pages by holding style parameters in a file separate from the html file and directing style issues in the html to the style page via links, headers or comments. When a point of style needs to be changed, the change can be made on the style sheet and affect the entire website. He described three different types of styles--global, module and inline and how they can be used a document.
He provided a handout for committee members and the group agreed that implementing style sheets would be a goal for the new web pages.
Ms. Pridgen attended the first of two classes offered by ACNS. She directed committee members to a new product called Dreamweaver Ulltradev 4 that is compatible with Cold Fusion and is supposed to greatly facilitate page designing.
Army Veterinary Corps
Ms. Tarnoff did not hear back from the Army Veterinary Corps with further information on how they plan to use our logo/link.
New Photo for Main Page
It was determined that photographs advertising the CVMBS Open House would be appropriate for the main page.
No one has begun to work on a preliminary design for the College websites. Members were encouraged to share the address of websites that have something interesting.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:00 a.m. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2001 at 9:00 a.m. in the Adams Room, Physiology Building.
