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
