choices.txt as html

Hi all,

I was thinking of putting the choices.txt as an 'html' document (choices.html)as apposed to a text document for the purpose of readability. Would this be acceptable?

Infact, I was thinking of packaging both choices.txt and choices.html.

Hi Vrinda,

You need to check what your instructions tell you. If your instructions require you to provide a choices.txt file then substituting a choices.html file will almost certainly cause failure.

Your second option sounds more reasonable.

The assignment instructions mention choices.txt.

A file called choices.txt that containing pure ASCII (not a word processor format) text describing the significant design choices you made.

So, I will go ahead with providing both choices.txt and choices.html. I hope there won't be an automatic failure.

For the user guide though I have an option of text file or html file.

you must provide either a single plain ASCII (not word processor format) text document, which must be called userguide.txt, or multiple HTML files which must all be accessible from a starting point document that must be called userguide.html.

thanks and regards
