Another suitable option could be to begin with course

Difference : mainly the formatting of the text, proprietary format

Slide 11 : 11/22 : Students (students.en.html)
A student may withdraw without incurring financial penalties

See The Student Enrolment and Administrative Procedures (SEAP) for more details on that.
Slide 12 : 12/22 : Assessment (evaluation.en.html)
Assessment is based on 9 laboratories, one assignment and one theoretical exam.
The Examinations office now have a form which students
are required to complete and obtain the necessary permission to use a dictionary
in an examination. This replaces the old method of examiners having to print
individual letters for students.
Forms are available from the front office counter. Students are required to obtain signature(s) from the relevant examiner(s) then take the completed form together with their dictionary to the Examinations Office. The dictionary is left at the examinations office and returned to the student at the examination. Students need to take their dictionary and approval to the examinations office 24 hrs prior to the scheduled examination.

Slide 20 : 20/22 : Web issues (web.en.html)
All lecture notes will be available on the course web site.
slightly irrelevant remarks : what is happening with that
1) http:// 2) escience 3) .anu.edu.au 4) :80 5) cg 6) /index.html 7) : Redirection from an HTML file
and as a redirection through the webct web site
Table of contents, print link, link link, navigation
CSS are the best way to change the look of a web page without touching its content. It helps to deal with Accessibility issues. The idea is that text content is not corrupted by visual formatting.
Be sure that your web browser accept CCS. Netscape (> 4) and IE (>= 5) should be OK. Go to the W3C web site to check the list.
I will be using CSS in order to use the same document for slides, handouts and even my lecture notes. The differences will be done only by the application of different Style Sheets on the same web pages.
Both of the following formats are based on XML and will perhaps be used in the handouts.
They are both new on the web in the sense that they are not yet set by default in main browser installations. Nevertheless, good Plug-Ins already exist to visualise those formats into web pages. To learn more about web standards and XML stuff, check the W3C web site : http://www.w3C.org/ .
Even if we don't eventually use these additional format s in the present lecture notes, it is interesting to have a look at them
SVG is a challenger to Flash and Shockwave, the Macromedia
format. Although SVG will
add many capabilities that are not directly available in Flash, by far the biggest difference between Flash and SVG is that the former is proprietary and the latter is public.
has released a good plug-in for SVG.
MathML is an XML application for describing mathematical notation and capturing both its structure and content. The goal of MathML is to enable mathematics to be served, received, and processed on the Web, just as HTML has enabled this functionality for text.
IBM is providing a plug-in for MathML. Not will only this plug-in allow you to visualise MathML, but techexplorer enables the display of TeX, LaTeX and MathML documents and the publishing of interactive scientific material on the Web. Version 3.1 includes full support for MathML 2.0
Slide 21 : 21/22 : Questions, Feedback (availabilty.en.html)
Then I would be able to postpone the answer to the next discussion class or next lecture :-)
I am afraid I have to catch the only bus that will bring me home after the Tuesday lecture ...
