your instructions for this project.
NOTE: A link
on the Web is a word that takes you to another place. Links are usually
underlined words. The words on the menu on the left are all links. When
you click on a link, it may open a whole new window (screen). If that
happens, you will not see the menu on the left. To get back to where you were, right-click
anywhere on the screen. Then click on "Back." You can also click
on the "X" at the top of you screen and close the page. Be
careful not to click the "X" on this page. If you do, you will
close this program.

help from your instructor.
