HTML5 in class exercise

Download the Exercise1 project, unzip it and then open it in Visual Studio. Add html to the pages to format the structure of the document. Keep in mind that the html5 tags are used to give semantic meaning to the sections of the document (structure) rather than for presentation (look and formatting) which is the job of CSS. When you finish, save your project. You will be adding to it when you work the exercise from Lecture 5.
