The Web is long past its novelty, if-you've-heard-about-it-you-must-be-a-geek status. Everyone, it seems, either has a Web site or is putting one together. The trouble is, if you want to join the fun (and profit) and don't happen to be a Web developer by trade, you may have difficulty in deciding exactly where to start. HTML! HTTP! XML! Java! JavaScript! Just trying to figure out what all these strange acronyms mean can give you a headache.

That's where Creating Web Pages All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies comes into play. Not only does it decipher all those acronyms in plain English for you, but it also shows you everything (hence the All-in-One part of the title) you need to know about creating your own Web site.

  • Dreamweaver
  • Multimedia
  • JavaScript
  • Flash
