Assignment: There's a new restaurant in town! The ISTA Bistro has just opened and has posted their menu online. However, they failed to style their menu at all! They've gotten numerous complaints from their customers that the online menu is difficult to read and isn't very user friendly.

For this assignment, you will be creating a CSS file which will be applied to the online menu. You will not be creating an HTML file, nor will you be modifying the HTML for the menu! The HTML file will be provided for you by the instructor in your student directory on the ISTA 230 web server. Using your ISTA 230 web account, you will be able to log in to the ISTA 230 server and will find a directory named "assignment2". Within this directory are the files for this assignment. The first file is the HTML file. Again, you may not modify this file to complete this assignment! Additionally, you will find a directory named 'css' which contains an empty CSS file named 'style.css'.
