    ***** This is an EXCELLENT guide for beginners! I had my niece come over for a weekend to try it out. Following the step-by-step directions, we created a simple, free web site. Nothing fancy, but plain either. This book begins the creating of a site OFF the internet. In simple words and terms the first few chapters get the 'newbie' (for lack of a better term) used to the computer, its files/folders, and inner workings. My niece is around ten-years-old and had only a few problems. I believe that kids around third grade could successfully use this guide. But if you are an adult who is new to computers, this book is perfect for you as well. .............................. The newbie will learn to create a folder on the hard drive at first. Do not worry, there are clear illustrations throughout the book to show you EXACTLY what should be on your monitor. (Added tip for newbies: Put a Notepad short cut on your desk top for easy access.) ................................ Next you will learn about open and closed 'tabs'. You must understand this part. One error and the page will not work or look correctly. Again, the book CLEARLY shows what you should see. From here on, things get easier. If you do not understand something, go back. If everything is clear to you, then the rest will be a cinch. By now you are in chapter three or four. You will learn about formatting, viewing sources, adding images, links, color and different font types. Next comes cells, tables, how to embed an HTML page within another HTML page. Illustrations show you the way through it all. ............................... From here the book will explain things that you should NOT publish on your web site for all the world to view. This is followed by how to register with free web hosting sites. (Added tip for newbies: Consider using Geocities for your first site. It is easy, free, and gives a good amount of space.) All-in-all, we found this book to be very easy to understand and follow. I highly recommend it for all beginners. *****

    I did it, at my late 60's

    I tried to do it myself, something for the family: to tell about myself and origin and about the children and grandchildren. It was also a way to spend my time in some useful tasks, not just playing cards or walk arround with friends. And, althogh I am not a proffessional, my family was very surprised to see my achievements! I have built a web site almost like a professional.
