Look at some themes that you might like to work with for your task 2.2 project. You may use your 2.1 project as a start, but you will need to make substantial changes to get the look that you want. You need to decide on which way you want to go.
Therefore, take some time to look over some free templates and decide if see any that you would like to try. Part of your grade will require that your html pages and that your css code will validate. So make sure the theme that you choose does not contain substantial errors that might be difficult to correct.
In this session we will practice building web pages using both html and css.
Take a few minutes and decide on a "theme" for the page(s) you are creating. Decide the structure of the site and what images you will need.

Who are you trying to reach? who is your target audience?
