Just some questions.

Alright, I have decided to make an informative website for a college assignment.

What is a good way to make a separate webpage used for only sources look good in CSS.

Also, how would I properly cite sources from other websites to put on my website. I have already cited these sources, so would I just leave them the default APA style?

Hi Domnick,

If i'm understanding you correctly you would like to show visitors to your site other websites, if this is what your saying then I would suggest.

You could use an iframe to show the other websites within your own, if you do this your visitors will be able to interact with the website on show as if they were at that website.
But this could be messy looking as the site you have in the iframe will probably be meant to be viewed on a large screen so you will have vertical and horizontal scroll bars.

A nicer looking method would be to take a screen shot of the website you want to display and have that on your website as a portfolio of images showing other websites, have them linked to the original website when clicked. I would suggest having the links open in a new tap or window so the user doesn't leave your website.
Sorry if I'm misunderstanding your question.

Hope this helps.
