Overview

This timely volume is an extraordinarily accessible introduction to computer technology as it relates to the World Wide Web. Robert J. Dilligan provides everything professionals need to use the Web effectively, from the theory of computing to the history of the Web, with clear discussions of programming, networks, HTML, and Web publishing. Generous illustrations preview what to expect on screen. Sample programs and exercises generally work on either PC or MAC platforms; where that is not the case, alternate material is provided over the Web, along with software written specifically for the book.
