Creating Web Pages All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies

Overview

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 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!

    Not What I was looking for...

    Good for what it is, but doesn't go into as much depth into HTML as I would have liked. Considering that all the other template programs have HTML modes (and help sections to assist with the graphics mode), I thought the book would focus more on HTML and at least get into more sophisticated layouts for those of us who are gurus of the self-teaching method. I love the 'For Dummies' format, though and will probably buy 'HTML 4 for Dummies'.
