Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Getting ready to create your first web page(s)? Don’t know where to start? Creating Web Pages for Dummies, Seventh Edition demystifies every step of the process -- and we mean every step.

Just follow the directions, as you create your text file in the “language of the Internet,” HTML, spice it up with graphics and links, preview it, get web server space, transfer your files there, even check to make sure everything’s working.

Want a free site? The authors walk you through publishing with Yahoo! GeoCities. Want a blog, your personal web diary? That’s covered, too -- also free, courtesy of Google’s Blogger. Most of the software and trialware you need to get started is on the accompanying CD-ROM, too. Suddenly, publishing web pages isn’t just easy, it’s dirt cheap, too. Bill Camarda, from the December 2004 Read Only

From Barnes & Noble
Whether you want to post a personal home page or a business Web site on the World Wide Web, do it the quick and easy way with this step-by-step book and accompanying CD-ROM. Discover the wide range of creation tools already on-line, how to create Web pages with or without HTML; placing your Web pages on a Web server (sometimes for free!); learn how to add graphics, formatting, hypertext links, and even multimedia to create a first-rate page without being an HTML pro!

    Basic. It's really for dummies

    This is a good book if you know absolute nothing about web pages. It covers almost all aspects related to web sites in a very easy language. However, this book takes whole chapters telling us how to use two or three particular softwares that I think nobody uses.
