Next, we need to hook these CSS and JavaScript files up into our index.html file. So, let's take the index.html file and open it up in your chosen text editor. After that title tag, let's hit Return. And let's start by typing beginning tag, type link, rel for relationship equals style sheet, type equals text/css. Another attribute href equals includes/timeline.css. Next, let's create a script tag. Type equals text/javascript.

Linking CSS and JavaScript files to your HTML file

Next, we need to hook these CSS and JavaScript files up into our index.html file. So, let's take the index.html file and open it up in your chosen text editor. After that title tag, let's hit Return. And let's start by typing beginning tag, type link, rel for relationship equals style sheet, type equals text/css. Another attribute href equals includes/timeline.css. Next, let's create a script tag. Type equals text/javascript.

Source attribute equals includes/jquery-1.8.3.min.js. Then end the script tag. Next, let's link in our custom JavaScript file. So, script type equals text/javascript. Source equals includes/timeline.js, and then end that script tag. Now, with those in place, we're going to add a comment, so, we can put some conditional scripts in place for IE 7 and 8. So, we'll start with a standard HTML comment, and inside here, we'll put the IE conditional statement. If less than IE 9 inside of brackets.

And then before the closing comment, another set of square brackets and type endif. Now, with that in place, let's get our cursor inside of this conditional statement. And first, we're going to make a link to our IE 7 and 8 CSS file. So, link relationship equals stylesheet, type equals text/css, and then href equals includes/timeline_ie_7_8.css. On the next line, we're going to put a link into Google's HTML5 shiv.

This way, IE7 and 8 will understand HTML5. So, that's going to be script, source equals Http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js, and then end the script tag. So, now with all of these hooks into our CSS and JavaScript files, we're ready to start creating our HTML containers.
