If you don't know HTML and aren't willing to experiment with it, you'll have to ask the office staff to type things for you. Again, please remember that formatting is very difficult - don't expect much.
Please look at some existing pages to see how people have been handling this. Try to avoid various HTML editors, or saving documents created in Word etc. in the HTML format - the kind of code these gadgets produce is almost impossible to edit by hand later, and it is sometimes not quite compatible with all browsers out there.
1. is the easiest and preferred, but requires the user to learn some
HTML and be somewhat conversant in Unix.
2. is appropriate when the pages might at some point need editing by the office staff.
3. is for people who don't want to maintain their own Web page and just want a few "static" files to be put up on the Web.
In cases 2. and 3. please use appropriate names for your documents (either directories as mentioned above, or reasonably descriptive names such as 211-2001Fall-syll.html), and send me a note saying which files to copy where.
The course materials should also be made accessible from one of the central pages on the server, http://www.math.niu.edu/courses/. Please let me know what links to your pages should be added there.
If you think some of your files are generic enough to be useful to others in the future, please mention it - I will then place them in a location accessible to all faculty and I'll advertise that fact. Conversely, if you do want some files archived but you do not want them to be used by others, make sure to mention that as well.
