Coding for Beginners #2 HTML

Today’s project: A corpus landing page

Let’s design a very simple “front page” to introduce web visitors to a small, home-grown corpus/archive. We’ll continue working with this project in subsequent workshops.

What would you expect to see there?

Let’s quickly work through the following four example pages — two from “home-grown” sites and two from the Pangloss archive — and work up a list of the kinds of content they contain. We don’t need a full list, just enough to get started.

Examples of language landing pages

  1. Abesabesi Grammar (forum topic)

  2. Konkow Maidu Language Resource (forum topic)

  3. Pangloss: Mota

  4. Pangloss: Lizu
